Once recognized as a dominant MuayThai fight destination for Muay aficionados in the early to mid 2000's, the Muaythai scene in Australia went through somewhat of a slump for a few years.
Thankfully the pendulum seems to be swinging back in the right direction as there looks to be a positive reemergence of the sport in the land down under!
Epic fight promotions, which are based in Perth are once again leading the charge with a stellar line-up planned for their July 7th show.
Epic is headed by ex fighter Darren "Riddler" Reece, himself a veteran of stepping over the ropes having had a very successful career as professional fighter — and nowadays owns and operates Ridders gym in Perth.
The main event for the evening sees Perth based Scottish born fighter, George Mann, training out of Gavs gym take on Melbourne based Thai, Tum Sityodtong.
Tum is coming off a big win in New York over the heavily fancied Ognjen Topic — and Mann recently got to the final of the 70kg eight man tournament in Brisbane.
The co-main event sees Victorian based boxer, Alexi Petroulias, himself fresh off a victory on Destiny promotions take on local boy, Lloyd Dean. Dean trains out of the aforementioned Riddlers gym.
