Thai Fighter UK Awards to be announced this week

The Thai Fighter UK rankings, ran by Reaper Gym head coach and UKMF representative, Steve Broome, is the most prestigious Muay Thai rankings system in the UK. More often, you find fighters defending their Thai Fighter UK spot than any title they may have previously won.

Each December, Thai Fighter UK offers awards for the best fighters which include; Male Fighter of the Year, Female Fighter of the Year, Gym of the Year and the Jordan Coe Trailblazer Award.

Nominations taken from UK’s leading promoters, officials and commentators are now in and last night, Thai Fighter UK co-ordinator Steve Broome announced the results had been decided and winners will be announced this week. The nominees were;
