Saturday the 20th of February was an exciting day for Australian Muaythai as it saw the return of Domination’s latest event entitled ‘The Rising’. Muaythai Australia which is fully recognised by Sports Australia and the world governing body IFMA which has merged with the WMC, sanctioned the show with 2 state title fights on the line and 15 bouts in total.
If you have former-athletes like Darren Curovic and Blair Smith promoting who understand the need for the fighters then you will have successful events for the athletes and audience alike. Also promoting was Darren Reece who represented Australia at the IFMA World championships, winning gold medals and famously had a golden day with his gym winning 8 out of 9 fights.
Australia has restarted muaythai under strict health restrictions to ensure Australian athletes can compete at the 2022 World Games in the USA and in Thailand at the upcoming Indoor Asian Games in which Oceania athletes can now enter.
