Last night (Friday 2nd September), in a female title fights packed card of Lion Fight 31 event at the Foxwoods Casino (Connecticut) live on AXS TV, Thai artist Tum Sityodtong defeated US based Peruvian Gastón Bolaños for the Super Light Weight (63.5 kg) Lion Fight title, in the co-main event of the evening.
The main event saw the woman’s Welterweight (65.8 kg) title bout in which Jorina Baars defended her title against Angela Whitley. The Dutch fighter first won her title back in March 2014 against MMA/UFC superstar Cristiane Justino aka Cris Cyborg (video).
The other two title fights were both women bouts, in which, Peruvian Antonina Shevchenko (Multiple Muay Thai world champion and sister of UFC rising star Valentina Shevchenko) defeated Italian Paola Cappucci for the vacant Lightweight (61.2 kg) title; and England’s rising star Iman Barlow was also crowned new Super Bantamweight (55kg) champion after defeating American Jeri Sitzes, who stepped in on a few days notice as a replacement.
We are very glad to see how the sport is growing also for what concernes more big opportunities for female fighters.
