In what can be described as close-fought war of attrition, between two of the countries top 135 pound fighters, it was Shannon Gardiner who came away with the victory over her opponent, Victoria Sullivan.
Gardiner, fighting out of Kao Sok MuayThai gym, took the challenge in facing the already world ranked Sullivan, fighting out of Champions gym.
It was to be Gardiner’s night as she had her hand raised in victory, after a split points decision, and with that, she became the new WBC MuayThai Australia lightweight champion.
