World Muay Thai Angels Round 2
Following the opening round held early April, the women’s contest “Muay Thai Angels” is finally ready for the day of the semi-finals. The event takes place tomorrow night (Saturday November 18) at U-Tapao International Airport in Phla, Thailand.
Muay Thai Angels is a single-elimination tournament at the 57 kg weight class. During the season the competitors battle out in a knockout system. The defeated fighter of each bout is immediately eliminated, while the winner advances closer to the final.
The roster of the upcoming show includes the winner of WMA 2014 Thai Chommanee Sor Taehiran, who goes up against Lucy Payne of England. Also on the card Maria Lobo of Portugal takes on Natalie Morgan of the US. In addition, another representative of the country-host Namtarn Por Muengpetch faces South African Yolanda Schmidt.
The expected bout between Japanese Jinnai Madoka and Swede Sofia Olofsson appears to be taken off the program. Instead the fight card features the bout between Thai Sawsing Sor Sopit and Natalie Hongthongmuaythai of Hong Kong.
