Muaythai and UNiTE have continued their fantastic joint campaign to End Violence Against Women. World Muaythai Angels partnered up with IFMA to put on a special Muaythai Day show to promote the popularity of female Muaythai.
Girls from around the world joined in the fantastic event and to promote the campaign, and the Thai national team took on an international team in an unforgettable event for all participants and spectators.
After the success of the first round of the World Muaythai Angels (WMA), which saw Chommanee Taehiran from Thailand winning the 1,000,000 Thai Baht prize and a brand new Toyota car, round two has begun with female athletes from around the world vying to get their spot in the final 16.
Promotional events and qualifying fights will be held during the rest of the year, with the first event being held at the end of October in Bangkok.
The WMA Season Two round robin event will start early next year, and as female Muaythai has grown so much in popularity, the world is looking forward to the next season, where the best of the best will fight for honour, glory, and the biggest payday in their fighting career.
After the growing success of Contender Asia, and Emmy-nominated Challenger Muaythai, Mr Jaru Ajchariya came up with the concept of creating World Muaythai Angels, sanctioned by the World Muaythai Council. 16 female athletes from around the world competed in a round-robin tournament system over a 3-month period. It was Chomannee Taehiran who was crowned the first WMA Champion, receiving the grand prize of 1,000,000 Thai Baht and a brand new Toyota Vios car.
