THERE was no need for 'one more' Round on Saturday night as one of the real characters of the British fight scene bowed out, temporarily at least, with a title winning bout.

Milford's David Round took on Manchester’s Craig Hastings in a Professional Middleweight K1 Championship fight at BUDO 22 at the LC2 Arena in Swansea, and promptly defeated the Englishman in under a minute after delivering one of his trademark head kicks.

"He came out and switched his stance to southpaw which threw me a bit," admitted the 30-year-old.

"So I used my fists more than I'd planned in the opening moments.

"He's a boxer by trade so was probably looking at drawing me in to throwing punches."

But after dropping his opponent with a right hand, Round found the opening for a head kick which sealed a rapid win.

And afterwards, Round, who praised the dignity of his opponent in defeat, re-iterated that he'd made no decision on whether or not he would fight again.

"I'm going to go back playing rugby for Milford Haven RFC this season but in terms of getting in the ring, I've made no permanent plans," he admitted.

"It seems like every month this past year I've had a fight hanging over me, so I need time to clear my head and allow injuries to heal."

Round, again flanked by cornermen Sam Clark and Josh Ramage, was supported in Swansea by a host of family members, friends, and work colleagues, and thanked everyone for their backing.

Round, of the Fight Agency, thanked his main sponsors JP Scaffolding, as well as LPA Impact, Support 81, Granicol Ltd, Bad Boy Supplements, L Greggain & Co Ltd, Steve Evans at Studio 9 Custom Tattoo, Training Mask, Stuart Lloyd Carpentry, Sweet Treat, Battle Body Clothing, Ian Smith Builders and Pain Game for their support.
