Monday, October 25, 2021: The morning after the night before, and we can not stop thinking about the performance of a lifetime from George Jarvis as he captured the inaugural WBC MuayThai Nai Khanom Tom Challenge belt on the SuperShowDown promotion in Bolton, England.
The Englishman overcame the challenge of Spain’s Toni Romero and, in doing so, paid homage to his late grandfather, who passed away recently, a man who had a significant influence on George and his MuayThai career.
The fight itself, fought over five rounds, witnessed Jarvis turn in the performance of his career — so far. He controlled the tempo with clean, effective use of all eight weapons of the science of MuayThai.
For his part, Romero didn’t let his side down as he battled his way to the very end of the contest, showcasing his talents on the grand stage. It was to be George Jarvis who took home a unanimous points decision and claimed the unique accolade that is the WBC MuayThai Nai Khanom Tom Challenge belt.
On behalf of the entire team at the WBC MuayThai, we would like to congratulate George on his victory and thank Brian Calder and his team at SuperShowDown promotions for hosting the Nai Khanom Tom Challenge belt in honor of the legend of the father of MuayThai.
