Here’s six World ranked Swedish Muay Thai fighters who will be in action this weekend at the SM Championships.
Nicholas Bryant (Featherweight #8)
Gothenburg Muay Thai’s Nicholas Bryant is a two-time Swedish National champion and has also represented Sweden in IFMA World and European competitions.
This year he will move up from his usual -57kg category to compete in the -60kg category, but can he remain unbeaten at domestic level and earn a third National championship?
Patricia Axling (Female Featherweight #10)
Odenplan Fightgym’s Patricia Axling will need little introduction. The Swedish Muay Thai star is bidding for her sixth-straight National championship, having won gold five times in a row between 2016 and 2020.
Axling is also a two-time IFMA World champion and two-time IFMA European champion.
Emma Stonegård (Female Welterweight #2)
Emma Stonegård is a two-time Swedish National champion, having won the title in both 2019 and 2020. She will be looking for a third consecutive National championship when she enters the -67kg category again this week.
Stonegård is also a 2019 IFMA World championship Silver-medallist, and despite the loss at the IFMA World and European championships in 2019, she’s beaten many of Sweden’s best female Muay Thai fighters, including Erica Björnestrand and Angela Mamic.
