Chommanee_trophyChommanee, the pride of Thailand and World Muaythai Angel Champion, truly made her country proud by winning the UNiTE Trophy at the Kings Cup gala event on the 5th of December.

Chommanee was strong in her semi-final bout against Martyna Krol from Poland. Both fighters showed great skill and heart in a highly competitive bout, but it was Chommanee in the end who won the close decision.

The second semi-final was also another close fight between Miriam Sabot from Italy and Marloes Elisabeth Marza from Holland. It was Miriam who came away with a close decision after a highly entertaining fight.

The final between Chommanee and Miriam was another close fight with both fighters respecting each other, but it was Chommanee in the final round who stepped it up and showcased all her skills and proved why she deserved the UNiTE Trophy.

To a standing ovation, the representative of UN Women, Anna-Karin Jatfors, together with IFMA President and WMC General Secretary Dr Sakchye Tapsuwan presented the first ever UNiTE Trophy to Chommanee.

The World Muaythai Council and the International Federation of Muaythai Amateur would like to congratulate all 4 girls on a fantastic performance, their excellent example of personifying the 5 pillars of Muaythai: respect, honour, excellence, tradition and fairplay, and for being a part of history in this important campaign.
