Perth fighter Jordan Godtfredsen is an emerging name of muaythai out of Australia.
Jordan Godtfredsen (21, 6 KO’s – 5) is a 24-year-old athlete representing Kao Sok Muay Thai Gym in Forrestdale, WA. He is fighting under the patronage of Darren Curovic and Komkit Chanawong.
Although “walking in the shadow” for quite some time at the beginning of his career, Godtfredsen, hasn’t lost in almost four years. He has gone head to head with Aaron Leigh on the Gold Coast in June 2013. “Wolf” has also fought such competitors as Millad Farzad and Roy Wills. In the most recent encounter last August, Perth fighter stopped Apisit of Thailand.
“I have been training for eleven years,” Godtfredsen told fightmag.com.au. “I am experienced and I am feeling strong. Ultimately, I just want to keep challenging myself.”
Godtfredsen has two big challenges on the roster
“He’s a tough boy, got a lot of heart. It’s going to make it for an awesome fight.”
The next for Godtfredsen, is the all-Australia eight-man 70 kg eliminator. The “Super 8” muaythai show is held in Brisbane on April 28.
Perth fighter may face off any of the contenders on the card. The program comprises Cory Smith of Victoria, Nathan Robson and Jayy Tonkin of NSW as well as Ben Mahoney, Jake Moulden, Odin Daniels and Jaocb Richards who represent the State-host of the event. Godtfredsen jumps over two weight classes.
“The heaviest I fought was 65 kg. For this tournament I don’t have to cut too much weight, I normally walk around 72 kg. Cutting down to 63 kg takes a bit of a dedication.”
Talking about the toughest on the card Godtfredsen says “they are all pretty even”. “At this stage I’m trying not to think about it too much to be honest. First of all I have Lloyd [Dean] in front of me.”
His trainer, Darren Curovic says that although it’s a new division the height is not going to be a problem. “We don’t mess around neither at the training nor in the fights,” he concludes.
