Ashely "Ashllxyy" is a 15-year Rocket League player who's making waves at the pinnacle of the esports scene, consistently beating world-class opposition despite only having one hand. 

Having recently gone viral after switching his focus to 1v1s rather than the conventional 3v3s, Ashllxyy has peaked at third place in the world rankings and showed his talent on the main stage versus the likes of Kurtis "Kash" Cannon in a showdown match hosted by John "JohnnyBoi_i" MacDonald.

The young Brit has now gone head to head against 1v1 two-time titan and 2017 RLCS Season 7 World Champion Kyle "Scrub Killa" Robertson in the Spring Split spin-off tournament named Battle of the Bulls, sponsored by Lamborghini.

With $5,000 up for grabs per match, Ashllxyy was paired up against the Flying Scotsman, and despite a lack of experience going against his favour, he came out on top. 

Early chances went in the way of Scrub Killa who took a 3-1 lead, keeping the ball on the ground to avoid the mechanical prowess that is Ashllxyy. However, as both players began to get a feel for the new Lamborghini Huracán STO car, it was Ashllxyy who took to the skies and hit five unanswered goals in the best of one tie.

Elsewhere in the Battle of the Bulls, Dignitas pair Jack "ApparentlyJack" Benton and Joris "Joreuz" Robben went head to head with the latter coming out on top and Victor "Fairy Peak!" Locquet was victorious over respected rival Khalid "oKhaliD" Qasim.

FaZe Clan's Austin "AYYJAYY" Aebi saw his shot at $5,000 thwarted by "LionBlaze", and Pulse Clan freestyler Gabriel "OSM" Sindri Benediktsson also was on tip-top form versus recent regional runner-up Dylan "eekso" Pickering.

With a wide range of talent in the 1v1 scene, Ashllxyy has certainly shown he can be one of the fiercest players in the game.
