One of the most spectacular events in our Muaythai calendar is held every year on the 4th August, the legendary Fight Night in Saint Tropez, France. This year it will be held a day before the opening of the Olympic games and what else could be better than promoting the Olympic spirit and gender equality than with a United Nations fight between the motherland of Muaythai, Thailand and the host of the 2016 Rio De Janeiro Olympic Games, Brazil.
This fight will feature two outstanding fighters Taehiran Chomanee from Thailand (Winner of Muaythai Angels and IFMA gold medalist) against Taina Duarta from Brazil in the 57.2kg category. This will be a fantastic promotion for female Muaythai, a special trophy will be given by UN Women in our campaign against violence against women.
Also on the bill Danijel Solaja (Germany) will face Yohan Lidon (France) in the 79.4kg weight category also for a WMC World title which promises to be a great fight. Aside from the headlining acts there will be a 4-man competition as well as a strong undercard featuring some well-known faces in the world of muaythai.
Promoter and commissioner Olivier Mueller has put together another night of top level international fights with top notch food to accompany it. Olivier stated that muaythai in the city continues to grow from strength to strength and everyone in Saint Tropez is looking forward to this event.
This prestigious event is popular among A-list celebrities and is often frequented by the likes of Sylvester Stallone, Gerard Lanvin and Matthieu Kassovitz to name a few. IFMA is looking forward to this event as always and wishes the best of luck to all fighters.
