Australia’s Kim “Lil K” Townsend, recently made her comeback after two years out of the ring.
She defeated Soraya Hamami on the last 1774 Muay Thai Series event in February. On that occasion she won the WBC Muaythai Australia National title.
Less than two months later, Kim Townsend returned to the ring, this time competing for the World title.
She defeated fellow-Aussie, Celest Hansen, to win the WBC Muaythai Light-Flyweight World title at Muay Thai League in April.
Just four weeks on, Townsend will now bid to become a two-weight World champion.
She stepped in on short noticed to replace the injured Jasmine Parr and will face Lisa Brierley – a worthy competitor for the vacant WBC Muaythai Flyweight World title.
Training under Muay Thai legend Manasak Pinsinchai, Brierley has competed around Thailand for many years. She’s fought many of the World’s best female fighters, collecting two World titles through her career.
Now she looks to add the green and gold of the WBC Muaythai to her collection.
