A NIGHT TO REMEMBER IN PERTH

3 Dec 2019


It was a night to remember for all the right reasons on this past weekend’s MuayThai Grand Prix event in Perth, Australia, as four new WBC MuayThai champions were crowned.

England’s Iman Barlow took home the coveted WBC MuayThai International super-bantamweight title when she defeated Australia’s Brooke Farrell. Barlow put on an incredible display of elite upper-echelons MuayThai to woo the crowd in attendance and claim her inaugural WBC title.

Stephan Lottering, fighting out of the famed Pit Gym, was a man on a mission and that mission was one of seek and destroy and he stopped his opponent, Eddie Farrell, via a 2nd round stoppage to claim the WBC MuayThai Australia super-middleweight title. That stoppage came via a relentless barrage of elbows forcing the referee to call a halt to the bout.

Max McVicker, a man young in years, but incredibly wise in the ring, overcame the challenge of Zac Einersen to claim the WBC MuayThai Australia lightweight championship title. Max scored a unanimous points decision to lift the domestic WBC glory.

Mitch Holder and Ryan Black put on a show of fiery proportions as they battled for the vacant WBC MuayThai super-welterweight Western Australia state title.

The contest started in crazy fashion as Black dropped Holder twice in the opening round, both times for eight counts…..much to the amazement of the crowd, Holder did a Tyson Fury — rose to his feet — and came back like a man possessed to immediately put the pressure on Black.

The next two rounds were just as crazy as the opening stanza and it was to be Holders night as he scored a magnificent TKO victory in the midst of a bloody-thirsty third round, and with that he became the new WBC MuayThai WA 154Lb state champion.

On behalf of WBC President, Pol. General Kovid Bhakdibhumi, and the entire team at the WBC, we would like to congratulate all four winners and their respective teams on their night of WBC glory.

The last word of thanks is directed at Gavin Fuller and his team at MTGP Australia for yet again hosting WBC championships on their event. Everyone at the WBC truly appreciates the endeavors undertaken to promote the WBC MuayThai in Australia by all involved.
