Without a doubt one of the highlights of the tournament!  Carstairs has been out of circulation for about a year since his lackluster performance at this and other tournaments, and it seems the training time has paid off in a big way.  The dark horse of this tourney destroyed two of his three opponents, and fought the then-favorite Beauregard to a standstill.  This event must have shaken Beauregard, who then allowed Douglas to get some payback for his first-round defeat.  Carstairs, undefeated, claimed the top placing amidst thunderous applause from a shocked audience, narrowly edging out Corsair Douglas with a score of 2-0-1 (80% wins) versus Douglas' 3-1 (75% wins).  There were some grumblings about the rest afforded him by his first-round bye, but no one has disputed the results officially.  Carstairs' manager promises many exciting singles' matches for his rising star very soon, and the excepted increase in his rating may make it possible for him to face Douglas in the ring one on one, an event greatly anticipated by the audience and Douglas himself.

The odds-on favorite Kronos seemed to be having a bad day, as he lost his temper in the first round against winner Shun, making the sort of blatant tactical errors he is known for; unfortunately, this time he couldn't muscle his way out of them, and was put away seconds before the bell.  His rage by the third round may have caused Matsamura to evade for almost the entire round except for an early exchange of inconsequential jabs, the resulting draw causing Kronos to lose his rank, and drawing some jeers from the crowd.  Ultimately the judges' decision favored Kronos, allowing him to keep his tenuous hold on rank 6, possibly motivated by Mastamura's unwillingness to engage.

Featured Bout:  World Warrior Challenge Match

The title of World Warrior, the most coveted appelation on the circuit, was sought this year by brash young Muay Thai stylist Jason Anderson.  His challenge was accepted by Thunder Hawk, who was in fine form for this match.  Anderson came right out of the gate with a series of vicious leaping uppercuts and leg strikes, but T. Hawk bided his time and countered until he saw that the opponent was slightly winded, then pressed the attack relentlessly, finishing with a devastating aerial throw that earned young Anderson at least a few weeks of recovery time.
