M-1 Global may be rocking Showtime with another installment of "Russia vs. everyone" on Friday night, but we here in New York City are getting a nice, big Muay Thai event to sate our combative sport hunger. Dubbed "Battle at the Beacon" (the Beacon Theater on the Upper Westside is the venue), the event is another one of Eddie Cuello and Take On Productions' kickboxing extravaganzas, and if this one is anything like their installments that took place out in Flushing, Queens, it should be a pretty damn fine night of action. Reps from quite a few top gyms will be throwing down, including Eddie Martinez of Sitan Gym, Turan Hasanov of Fight Factory, Nick Vaughan of the Wat and Gaius Ebratt of Five Points Academy.
