Muaythai Success Story from Danial ‘Mini T’ Williams Fri, 26 Jun 2015 03:13:13 +0000 In a most thrilling battle in the ring, Danial Williams defeated Thanit Khomsai to claim the WMC World Title and taking a well-deserved leap in his muaythai career honouring Kao Sok Muaythai Gym where he trains.


A 4-time Western Australian Title Champion and IFMA Un  iversity World Cup champion, Danial is extremely proud to have now added WMC title to his record.


“Danial Williams has come a long way to this victory and to all achievements he made in his young age. Starting with various martial arts as a kid he came to muaythai training led by his uncle, a former muaythai athlete. The turning point for Danial was watching his brother’s successful career in muaythai. That is when Williams decided to follow in his footsteps and we can see that he has not lost face on this path”, sums up his coach.


This event has been a great preparation for the IFMA Royal World Cup which is scheduled to place in Bangkok this August and both athletes will have a great opportunity to add new trophies to their personal hall of fame.

Lion Fight 22 Delivers: Results and Highlights Wed, 27 May 2015 03:58:27 +0000 Lion Fight delivered again in a highly electrifying evening of big fights and competition on AXS TV.  After a bit of a break, fights returned to AXS TV in a BIG way with another great night of action from Lion Fight. Lion Fight 22 took place under the stars outdoors at Sunset Station in Henderson, NV and saw TWO champions crowned.

In the main event Jo Nattawut took on Salah Khalifa, who stepped for an injured Kem Sitsongpeenong, for the Super Welterweight Title. It didn’t look like the fight would last long as Nattawut hurt Khalifa bad in the first round. However, Khalifa was able to recover and survive through 5 rounds with Nattawut. “Smokin’ Jo” was just too much for him though, and he cruised to a decisive decision win to claim the title.

In the Co-Main Event, Tiffany Van Soest returned to reclaim the title she lost to Caley Reece over a year ago. Reece has since retired, so Van Soest faced Britain’s Bernise Alldis. In the first round, Van Soest opened up a gash in Alldis’ cheek with an elbow and that gash would eventually do Alldis in, as Van Soest’s aggression ended things in fourth round per doctor’s orders.

Also on the card, Brian Del Rosario and Christine Ferea picked up their first pro wins, Anthony Castrejon edged out a split decision victory in a rematch with Jason Andrada, and Gaston Bolanos and Damien Earley put on maybe the “Fight of the Night” before an injury stopped the action.

Here are the highlights courtesy of AXS TV:

 Fight Card Results

  • Jo Nattawut def. Salah Khalifa via Unanimous Decision (50-43 50-43 50-43
