World Kickboxing Champion Randy "Boom Boom" Blake Home from TrainingAppears at Four Reasor's Locations Saturday, June 15th
TULSA, Ok. – Randy "Boom Boom" Blake returns home to Owasso following kickboxing training in Holland and will appear at Reasor's in Broken Arrow on 71st Street Saturday, June 15th from 10am-11am, Reasor's in Sand Springs 11:30am-12:30am, Reasor's at 15th and Lewis 2pm-3pm and Reasor's in Owasso on 86th Street 3:30pm-4:30pm along with the sampling of Kratos High Protein Beef Bars at all Reasor's stores that day.
Blake initially gained recognition fighting in the World Combat League, then went on to win and dominate the Xtreme Fighting League's Light Heavyweight Kickboxing Championship with numerous title defenses. In 2012, Blake won the ISKA World Heavyweight Muay Thai title and began competing in K-1 the same year. Blake is sponsored by Kratos High Protein Beef Bars and regularly uses the high protein bar as part of his training regimen.
Recently Blake fought in an eight-man 95 kg/209 lb tournament as part of the "Road to Glory" series, qualifiers for the Glory promotion, at Xtreme Fight Night 11 in Tulsa on February 1, 2013. Despite entering the tournament as the favorite, he was upset at the quarter-final stage by Dustin Jacoby, a mixed martial artist and late entrant to the competition. In round three, he was caught with a punch while lunging in which hurt him and allowed Jacoby to capitalize and force the referee to call a halt to the bout.
He was scheduled to face Manuel Quezada at Xtreme Fight Night 12 in Tulsa on April 12, 2013. However, Quezada was replaced by the lesser-known Jason Broom who Blake beat via technical knockout in the second.
Despite losing out in the "Road to Glory" tournament, Blake was still given his chance in the promotion and will debut at Glory 9: New York - 2013 95kg Slam in New York City, New York on June 22, 2013. It is unknown whether or not he will fight in the 95 kg/209 lb tournament, however.
February 1st of this year local entrepreneur Richard Cranford launched Kratos High Protein Beef Bars. "We heard doctors and athletes and consumers in general asking for something with high protein to build muscle that tasted better than other protein bars. They wanted something with blueberries and acai berries to provide antioxidants, cell protection and vitamin C. People today are not only exercising more, they are eating right and focused on feeding their children right," said Cranford. Kratos (mythical Greek god of strength and power) High Protein Beef Bars are 100% Midwest lean beef, 11 grams of protein, gluten free, 0 grams sugar, no trans-fat, no MSG, no nitrites, 1 gram carbohydrate, nut free, lactose free and only 4 grams of fat. "Reasor's is a leader in the industry when providing customers what they want, along with providing healthier options. Customers love the nutritional value of Kratos High Protein Beef Bars and they are doing well in our stores," said Mike Naylor, Director of Specialty Foods.
Kratos High Protein Beef Bars are offered in Zesty Pepper, Acai Berry and Blueberry recipes. The company took 5-6 flavors out for a taste test with athletes, doctors and consumers who chose these three flavors as their favorites. Cranford says the Beef Bars do not taste anything like berries and are simply infused with the health ingredients and benefits of the acai and blueberries.
"We're excited about Randy appearing at Reasor's," said Cranford. "He is one of the most genuine people you will ever meet. He is a great role model for kids. He is dedicated to his craft and it shows," said Cranford. When he is not competing, Blake can be found at Apollo's Karate in Tulsa instructing kids in kickboxing and mixed martial arts.
"We're out sampling Kratos High Protein Beef Bars everywhere so people can see and taste for themselves that something really healthy can taste great," Cranford said. "We get great promotional support from Randy when we are sampling because he is the epitome of what it means to live healthy, clean and exercise."
