Tiger Muay Thai babe, Genah “Fabioso” Fabian hit the ropes last night with huge fanfare ready to support her first fight. The New Zealand beauty took the decision win against Camilla Moberg of Sweden with her usual mix of sexy and cool.
“It was a thrill,” exclaimed the fighter, who has been at Tiger Muay Thai and MMA training camp, Phuket, Thailand since August. “I remember giving my friends one last look before it started and that was it. The rest is blank.”
Born with a natural athletic ability, the professional rower has competed on both national and international levels – even earning a spot on next year’s olympic team which she subsequently turned down.
“I had to find my passion and love for the sport of rowing again,” explains Fabian who has been living in Sydney, Australia for the past five years. “I came here to get into the best shape of my life and to work towards the 2016 Olympics.”
It seems, however, that she may have fallen in-love with a new sport instead.
“I can’t believe I did it! Just getting in there was such a huge accomplishment for me. I’m so proud of myself.”
Up next was Piril Vårdal of Norway. Although he came off a first round TKO from his last fight in November, he lost an impressive fight to a decision. The fighter will head home for the holidays and return next year in hopes of a rematch.
Rounding out the evening was Jamie Davis who took at fourth round TKO in front of his mom, Naomi.
“That made is all the more nerve-wracking,” explained the 21 year-old from England. “I refuse to lose with her watching!”
Although he took a nasty elbow to the head, Davis kept up the jabs and leg kicks until his opponent Munilnoi couldn’t take anymore.
“Winning is the most amazing feeling I’ve ever felt before,” gushed the fighter, who is here for six months. “The confidence fighting gives you is just amazing.”
