Caley Reece vs Magdalena Rak in Bangkok

Wednesday: Update from Caley: Thanks to everyone for their messages!! Had a great fight against Magdalena Rak from Poland and won on points. Was good to fight a westerner again.!Thanks to Sinbi Taewoong , Daz, Ben Needle, Robyn Marinkovich Needle, Steve Morris and Pinky BuaChompoo and to Stephan Fox and WMC for bringing over for such a great historical event! Now for EPIC..... 10 DAYS! What?? Really no more choc milk???? xx

Some very exciting sports news out of Thailand this month - a tiny step closer to having MuayThai in the Olympics. This has been a long time coming, and I mean a long time. I started working with IFMA in Bangkok in 2001 and it was already a historic process back then. There is so little space on the Olympic card* that you just don't know what could happen but for now, it's all good.

And tonight one of the best female fighters in the world Australia Caley Reece takes on Polish champion Magdalena Rak in a celebration of this journey. Umm, some boys are fighting too. Here's Caley training earlier this week down in Sinbi Gym in Phuket, Thailand.





*Will have a great interview with Pam Boteler from WomenCAN International on this topic later in the week

She looks awesome.
I don't see why Muay Thai isn't in the Olympics, it's such a growing sport and more and more popular amongst both men and women all over the world.
