COTTONWOOD - Recently, there was an article published in the August 12 issue of the Camp Verde Bugle and the Verde Independent titled "HDH Kickboxing just getting started." In the article it references Richard Williams and the Golden Cobra gym. The article said that Richard Williams was "originally with the Golden Cobra."
Richard Williams is still a part of Golden Cobra and the gym is still up and running in the Camp Verde area and Williams holds events all throughout the Verde Valley. Williams just returned from Glory 23 an event that was held at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. Williams attended the event with his fighter, Nik Salantri, who fought on the undercard, and went all three rounds against opponent Patrick Branch at 165 lbs. Williams will also be holding a fighting event on October 17 in Cottonwood at Vinny's that will feature Nik Salantri in an IKF Arizona State Title fight.
