Santai Muay Thai Gym, located in San Kamphaeng, Thailand (approximately 18 km from the city of Chiang Mai) is holding an eight bout Muay Thai promotion with the main event showcasing female fighters at 55 kg (121 lbs). The purse is 55,000 THB (at time of writing, approximately $1,560.00 USD). This is a significant purse for female fighters in Thailand.
Interested fighters can contact Nik Hjalmarsson (Santai Muay Thai Gym). Include your record, a photo, any titles you have and anything else that may put you in the running. For example, if you lack a title but have wins over some tough opponents, let Nik know. Do you have a great video that shows your skills? Send the link.
The deciding team is comprised of Nik Hjalmarsson (Santai Muay Thai Gym), PI Pinsinchai (Santai Muay Thai Gym / Pinsinchai Muay Thai Gym) and Teresa Wintermyr (Sinbi Muay Thai Gym).
The event will take place on Saturday, February 15, 2014 at Wat Santai (Santai Temple). Wat Santai is located beside the gym. Some of the first Muay Thai fights I attended in Thailand were at Wat Santai in 2007. They were a great time and if I was to be in Thailand at this point in time, my intent would be to make my way there for the festivities. Note, the fight will take place during a temple festival.
