Kickboxing Event this Saturday in Waterloo

Posted: Updated:

Beware of flying fists and feet inside the Roc Gym this week as competitors prepare for a big kickboxing event this Saturday at the Five Sullivan Brothers' Convention Center in Waterloo.

The show will mark the return of local favorite Joe Ayala---who has captured several championship belts in kick boxing and MMA.

This will be the 32 year-old Ayala's first competitive fight in four years--but he says his skills are as strong as ever.

Ayala said,

"Just like riding a bike-- just got to get that cardio back--but it's already there so I'm good to go.. When did you start training for this? 'About 41/2 -5 weeks ago Made that mind up and got to go with it"
Kickboxing coach Russ O'Connell says it will be a great night of action.

It's going to be a really good night of kickboxing, we've got some slick fighters--some MMA guys who want to improve their striking and what better way than to step into a kickboxing ring there is no where to run just stand and bang."
