Sunday, May 7, 2023: Kim Townsend is this morning celebrating capturing a prestigious WBC MuayThai Diamond Championship strap after a stellar performance in the main event of last night’s RISE Championship promotion in Brisbane, where she overcame the challenge of former WBC MuayThai world champion Saya Ito.

From everyone at the WBC, congratulations to Kim and her team for yet another incredible achievement where she became only the second female elite champion to capture a coveted WBC Diamond title in the 20-year history of the WBC MuayThai.

Kim adds the Diamond title to her two-weight WBC MuayThai world championships at flyweight and light-flyweight and two WBC MuayThai Australian titles.
