Despite the snow, Muaythai raised the temperature this weekend in Tampere, Finland, thanks to Saturday’s Chitalada Showdown.
In the Showdown’s showstopping main event, Milja Heino showed her fantastic Muaythai style against Russian Valeriya Drozdova, winning by unanimous decision.
In a fight matching steel against steel, Finland’s female fighters showed their pro mettle against each other:
Heli Salpuros (IFMA European Champion and World Championship bronze medalist 2011) won via a superb TKO over Kati Kaareskosk, IFMA World Champion and European Champion gold medalist 2012.
In the male pro fight, WMC Nordic Champion, Janne Ollonen, didn’t give an inch, constantly pushing Russia’s Tamirlan Ragimov, until a TKO win.
