After 5 hard fought rounds the fight went to the judges score cards in favour of Thibault from France much to the pleasure of the crowd.

After the fight Thibault stated that ” I am usually a hard character but I almost cried, I had tears in my eyes as winning this title means so much to me, I have sacrificed so much in training for this fight which has been very difficult so it is nice to finally get a reward so I am not letting the belt out of my sight for the time being.

Pascal the President of WMC France stated that “with this belt Thibault and his gym can now help popularise muaythai in Corsica,  muaythai is unique as it uses all 8 limbs and they showcased how efficient this martial art is compared to others in front of a packed stadium, which is highly beneficial for the sport”.
