Australia will host an international event inviting Malaysian athletes in for the last important test before the SEA Games 2017 held in Malaysia. Malaysian athletes will take on top Australian fighters and Australian muaythai President Peter Boyd stated that events like this are important for the development of both countries especially as Oceana will now enter Asian events such as the Asian games and indoor Asian games. Malaysia has hosted an amazing world championship in 2014 so Australia is happy to host Malaysia in Australia.

Dato’ Shahnaz Azmi, President of Malaysian muaythai and vice president of the Asian Federation stated that  the cooperation between recognised muaythai national federations such as Australia and Malaysia is very important and Malaysia was a firm supporter for Oceana to join the Asian competition. Both presidents will be ring side this Saturday.
