Two WMC National Titles on the Line

Saturday 13th of March will see the return of Elite Fight Series this time gracing the city of Cairns, Australia. The show is hosting 2 x Pro WMC belts with a title defence from James Honey (Strikeforce Gym-Gold Coast) against the challenger Matthew Smith (Nukzu Muay Thai-Cairns) at 72.58 kg in a much anticipated rematch after James won the title 12 months ago.

Additionally, Ryan mcdonald (Destination Fitness-Cairns) will face Taniera Terry (Strikeforce Gym-Gold Coast) for the WMC Pro Title at 66.68kg Welterweight which is shaping up to be one of the most talked about fights of the year so far.

All in all there will be 13 bouts with fighters travelling from Townsville, Cooktown, Mackay, Rockhampton, Brisbane and Gold Coast showcasing Australia’s homegrown talent.

After a rocky start to 2020 the March event was put on ice due to measures brought in by the government to restrict the spread of Covid 19. This is the third show from the the promotion since Covid 19 restrictions have been put in place so Kudos to all the guys involved for their hard work and perseverance.

The show just awarded their very first annual Thailand scholarship to Pro Nak Muay, Joseph Gabiola of Courage Training Centre. This is a scholarship awarded each year to a fighter that shows muay thai spirit inside and outside the ring. Joseph will be jetting off to Thailand for a complete fight camp once travel is permitted with all expenses covered as a way to give back to the sport and community.

A big thank you to all the organisers for all your hard work from all at the WMC!
