“Sze Sze wins the quarter final against Morroco. 2 fights and 2 wins in 2 days. Into the medal round on Saturday. She was awesome and dominated for a solid points wins [sic],” Muaythai Australia reported from Bangkok on Thursday (via a post on Facebook).

In the opening round on Wednesday, Rowlinson faced Rachele Tidei of Team Italy. After three rounds of women’s Muay Thai the Melbourne-based fighter was awarded the decision (30-27).

Today (July 25) she took on Belouarrat Oumaima of Morocco. The contest as well went a three-round distance and similarly ended in the 30-27 decision in favor of representative of “Green and Gold”.

In her next outing this coming Saturday (July 27), Sze Sze Rowlinson goes up against the representative of the country-host, Suphisara Konlak of Thailand. The pair squares off in the semi-final bout of the tournament.
