Fighting in the USA, Sweden, Finland, south of the Scottish border in the UK, she has beaten some of the top female Muay Thai fighters in the World at her weight.
“It’s amazing to be able to defend my Lion Fight World title for a second time, but I’m even more excited to be doing it at home”, Amy told us.
She continued, “With a lot of fights in 2019 being abroad, I’ve not been in front of my own fans for almost three years, and there will be a lot of them on 22nd August. I can’t wait to hear them all when I walk to the ring, especially my mum, dad and sisters.”
Her opponent, however, is no stranger to fighting on foreign turf.
