Claire scored a 4th round KO over Thai opponent from a Bangkok gym after opening a bad cut to her head forcing the referee to stop the fight. Claire moves to 7-0 in fights for Tiger Muay Thai and is eyeing a shot at the World title as she continues to impress Thai promoters with her ability, technique and tenacity.
Chantal, the reigning Women’s 67 kg WPMF World Champion, showed up ready to fight but found her Thai opponent nowhere to be found and declared a “NoShow.” Chantal will be fighting next week on an internationally televised broadcast against an opponent from Bangkok.
Upon her return and a period of training, the much awaited fight between TMT’s Chantal and Rawai’s Lindsey will take place probably some time in late April. Should be a good fight between two tough female warriors.
