Matthew Borg, a member of Wu Shu Ky Kickboxing Club based in Mosta which is run by Silvio Camilleri, narrowly lost to Eliseo of Italy,

Borg faced Vastano Eliseo of Italy where they faced each other for a six round European Title fight. This was a first European title fight for Borg and no doubt we will see more of Matthew in the near future.

“I would like to say a big well done to Matthew Borg for his excellent performance and he made me as his coach and Malta very proud.” – Coach Camilleri. 

It was a tough fight from the start. The Italian fighter Vastano Eliseo started very strong in the first round, however the Maltese Kickboxer stood his ground and countered back very well.
From the 2nd on to the 5th round Matthew developed himself to show non stop action. In the 5th round the Italian fighter could not keep up with Borg’s persistent attacks. It was a very close fight won by the Italian fighter, Vastano Eliseo.

The Malta Kickboxing Team would like to thank Master Biagio Vitrano of Italy & Master Biagio Nogara for giving them this opportunity to compete in Agrigento (Sicily).
