Iman Barlow vs Bekah Irwin - Triumphant 11

Iman Barlow Set To Face Bekah Irwin at Triumphant 11

One of North America’s top Muay Thai promotions is set for a huge event on 12th June.

Triumphant Combat Sports makes its way to Miami, Florida, for Triumphant 11 presented by Muay Thai Addict.

The main event will see former Bellator Kickboxing star Kevin Ross take on former GLORY Kickboxing fighter Asa Ten Pow in a WMC Muay Thai World title bout.

Earlier today, it was announced Iman Barlow will face Bekah Irwin in a huge female bout at Triumphant 11.

Barlow, a seven-time Enfusion Kickboxing World champion, is one of the most accomplished Muay Thai and Kickboxing fighters to come out of the UK.

She is also a Lion Fight World champion and MTGP World champion and currently ranked #2 in the World in the WBC Muaythai Female Super-Bantamweight World rankings.

With defeats only to Sofia Olofsson and Anissa Meksen in the past eight-years, Iman Barlow has one of the most decorated records of any female Muay Thai fighter.

The 28-year-old will face the younger and less experienced Bekah Irwin next month, but don’t let the difference in professional experience between the two fool you.

Irwin, 20, trains at Heritage Muay Thai in her hometown of Houston, Texas, under Michael ‘Chase’ Chorley.

From the age of 16, Bekah has been travelling to Thailand to compete, and between 2016 and 2018 she went on to win the IFMA Youth World championships three years in a row.

To be a consistent winner of the IFMA competitions takes serious pedigree. UFC fighters Valentina Shevchenko and Joanna Jędrzejczyk and former GLORY Kickboxing fighter Sofia Olofsson all earned this achievement in their early careers.

In 2019, Bekah Irwin turned 18 and became the youngest ever fighter to sign with GLORY Kickboxing.

She later went on to make her debut and became the youngest fighter ever to win a bout in the GLORY ring.

She went on to win three straight bouts in GLORY throughout 2019 before the COVID-19 pandemic struck in early 2020 and halted proceedings.

Now, full of confidence, she will step up to face her biggest test to date when she faces Iman Barlow on 12th June at Triumphant 11 in Miami, Florida.
