Mortgage Broker Wins Tournament By Knockout

Eric Parker knocks out four in IKF championship

July 29, 2009

By staff

A "spinning hook kick" by a Florida mortgage broker knocked out his opponent and earned him a world championship.

The International Kickboxing Federation reported the results of the 11th Annual 2009 IKF World Classic Amateur Kickboxing & Muay Thai Championship Tournament
held in Orlando, Fla., from July 24 to July 26.

Of the 229 fighters that competed in the event, 53 went home with IKF World Classic title belts.

The group highlighted a number of winning events, including Eric Parker's.

"The one that stood out the most in our minds was the 'spinning hook kick' by the first fighter to win four tournament bouts by" technical knock-out or knock-out, the association said of Parker's fourth of four consecutive knockouts or TKOs. "Parker won his championship bout at 48 seconds of round 1."

The win earned Parker the 2009 IKF World Kickboxing Lightweight Championship Title.

Parker, a Tampa mortgage broker with America One Finance, issued an announcement touting his win and explaining that tournament participants are eliminated after just one loss. The 139-pound contender was up against a dozen other fighters in his division.

"For Eric Parker, it was the opportunity of a lifetime when he entered the Muay Thai Rules Men's Lightweight Division, a full-contact rules division that permits punches and kicks to the head, body and legs, as well as knee and elbow strikes," his press release said.

Among his defeated challengers were Peru's Jonathon Arias, fellow Floridian Eric Shelland and Costa Rica's Mauricio Siles, according to Parker's news release. The championship fight against Mark Trillas of Miami lasted just 48 seconds.

Parker, who trains at Tiger Schulmann's Mixed Martial Arts in Clearwater, attributed his achievement to a strong will to win, a good team and support from family and friends.
