“…I actually had a moment on Saturday night before I went out to fight where I stopped and thought “I can’t believe I’m actually doing this…” It was just so out of the question when I started training in 2008. All I wanted was a state title! Now I’ve only got 1 more win before I have a world title belt that looks just like Mike Tyson’s ? -Ben “The Blade” Johnston
Julia “Killa” Whale won her second ever Muay Thai fight, coming away with the win. Congratulations “Killa”!
I cannot believe that last night was the night of my 2nd Muay Thai fight and 1st non padded fight…I would firstly like to thank my opponent for putting on a strong , hard and fast 3 rounds. You are definitely a tough girl that can take a hit and through them back just as hard.- Julia “Killa” Whale
Jada “Knees from Hell” Ketley and Petra Donnelly were up against each other in the Semi Final of the 4 Woman Eliminator. Petra taking the fight on less than 2 weeks notice. In the semi final both girls put on an exciting fight, Petra having a great time in there, this being her first fight back in well over 3 years. After a solid fight, Jada “The Knees from Hell” took the win and she went through to the final. The final was a rematch with an opponent who had previously beaten Jada last year, this time Jada showed pure aggression every round, after 2 fights in one night – Jada is now the proud owner of the Destiny Championship Title Belt. Very happy for you Jada!!
So I did it guys! Stepped into my first 4 women eliminator and took home both wins and a new, pretty belt. – Jada “Knees from Hell” Ketley
After a 2yr holiday from fighting and 1 weeks notice Petra stepped into the ring and fought on Destiny Muay Thai last night. To think you have been absent in the fight world you fought like a machine and as always entertained the crowd. Could not be prouder ???? – Kaos Muay Thai Gym
Danyellah “The Hurricane” Hill’s opponent withdrew on the night for her boxing fight in Caloundra due to illness. This was a big let down for “The Hurricane”, as she was keen on defending her IFKF Amateur C Class 75 KG women’s strap, which she won in Melbourne last year.
