Saturday, September 10 — Muay Thai Monarchs, promoted by Majestic Gym’s owner Kevin Harper, crowned two new WMO world champions.
The fight card featured two huge headline bouts, plus a stacked card of domestic clashes. In the main event, two of the UK’s best Super-Welterweight’s collided for the WMO Muay Thai world title.
Alex MacGregor — unbeaten in the UK in six years — faced Josh Hill for the WMO Muay Thai Super-Welterweight world title.
In 2022, Alex MacGregor claimed the WMO British title with a win over Owen Trykowski. On the same night Josh Hill won the WMO European title when he beat Ireland’s Aaron Browne.
The pair have been on a collision course ever since.
New WMO Muay Thai world champions
After five rounds of action, Alex MacGregor was victorious via split-decision and claimed the vacant WMO Super-Welterweight world title.
Earlier in the evening, the other featured bout saw home favourite Dan Bonner in action. He faced Turkish outfit Enis Yunusoglu for the WMO Muay Thai Light-Heavyweight world title.
In an all-out war, Bonner suffered a cut before swarming on his opponent. He dropped him with a vicious combination and the referee called a stop to the fight.
Alex MacGregor and Dan Bonner now become the 4th and 5th British WMO Muay Thai world champions in history. They follow on from Nico Carrillo (x2), Niamh Kinehan and Joe Ryan who have all claimed WMO world titles in the past 12 months.
