MONSO SHOWS VIKING SPIRIT TO WIN WBC MUAYTHAI SUPER HEAVY TITLE

24 Mar 2009


Unbeaten Ed Monso won the WBC MUAYTHAI Super Heavyweight World Tile when he sensationally overcame the odds to knockout Croatia?s top ranked Stipan Radic in front of delirious fans Saturday night (21 March) in Arhus, Denmark.

Monso shot to fame when he won the WBC International Title two years ago. He then opted to challenge Radic, a top gun Muaythai professional, in an ultimate quest for glory to become the undisputed king of the WBC?s heaviest Muaythai division.

Monso?s remarkable win was a grand slam for the WBC?s Denmark promoter Mohammad Tehrani, who had his young gun fighter Frank Madsen win the National Title 67KG against rival Rhassan Murareb. Then young talented Tuyet Trinh shed her underdog status to score a narrow and deserved win to take the WBC Female International Championship (53KG) against France?s Jennifer Martinez. And to top of a memorable night for the Viking warriors at the Valhara (Warriors? Heaven) Hall, Arhus?s martial arts living legend Henrik Nygaard won the eight-man tournament against a line-up of first class contenders from France, Croatia, Morocco, Holland and Germany.

Nygaard took the Viking Championship Belt when he KO?d German Borrel Willy with a succession of powerful leg kicks in the first round of the final contest.

But the night?s finest accolades went to Monso who was confident and unfazed by his opponent Radic?s reputation for being well prepared and ready for the championship shot having trained in Thailand to tone up his fitness and fighting skills.
From the opening bell Monso went on the attack peppering Radic with blitzing leg kicks that had the Croatian cautious and defensive. After a minute of tense confrontation Monso let loose with a flurry of hard punches that dazed Radic resulting in a count. Monzo followed up with more powerful, damaging punches and the referee Sod Toy stepped in to stop the fight to protect the Croatian who was obviously stunned and defenseless.Radic accepted he was beaten fairly and said he was surprised by Monso?s first round intensity and hard hitting punches.

Promoter Tehrani said Monso had the honour of fighting full Muaythai rules for the ultimate WBC Muaythai championship that also won for him glory in the traditional Viking way. He was also particularly proud of Trinh's performance..."I knew from the first time she entered the gymn that she had the heart of champion fighter." As for Madsen peformance..."he really impressed a lot of people. He's not far off getting a crack at a WBC International title."
