Romani kickboxer Václav Sivák has crushed one rival after another to rack up what are 15 professional victories so far - during the "Night of Warriors" gala evening at Parkhotelu Smržovka on Saturday he defeated Ali-El Saleha of Germany. During the first seconds of the match it was clear he was dominating and Saleha bowed out before the first round even ended after going down for the count twice.     

The 21-year-old Sivák gave the competitor from Germany no chance. Three other contestants had bowed out due to illness before the match was eventually held with Saleh.

"Another first-round victory. I hope my rival is ok. Thanks to all for their support. We keep on going!" Sivák posted to social media after winning. 

The kickboxer from the Czech Republic openly espouses his Romani origin. During the match on Saturday the word "Gitano" could be seen on his back and he wore both the Czech and Romani flags on his shorts.

The talented martial artist said he would now like to go to Thailand for a few months and that he is also considered transitioning into Mixed Martial Arts (MMA). "I'd like to spend a couple of months in Thailand now, maybe get to Lumpinee Boxing Stadium. I also train in MMA, so I'm up for anything, but we all know that your attitude comes in first place," he said in an interview for CzechFighters.cz.
