There are times in a person's life where you make choices to join the masses, work 9-5 and continue doing the ordinary ? ordinary is safe and confirmative ? then you have elite combat athletes who put their minds and body at risk and make huge personal sacrifices for the pleasure of others and for personal glory.

On Wednesday the 15th of August, in the mystical city of Hong Kong, two of those aforementioned upper-echelons fighting combatants will go to war in the quest for WBC glory, and also to make MuayThai history in becoming the first ever WBC MuayThai female diamond belt world champion.

This coveted and prestigious championship belt has only ever been contested for two times ? in the 13-year history of this reputable organization ? the winners of those two belts were global MuayThai stars, Buakaw Banchamek and Saenchai PK Saenchai; one of these ladies will join that illustrious club.

The Protagonists:
English fighter Ruth Ashdown (38-8-2) epitomizes everything that is good about our wonderful sport of MuayThai.

She exemplifies professionalism, dedication, sacrifice and passion for the craft she has chosen to pursue.

This elite fighting combatant is a two-time WBC MuayThai world champion and for this reason alone our executive committee here in Bangkok have sanctioned the first-ever female WBC MuayThai world title contest.

Thailand?s Dokmaipa Pomkiatpetch (59-4-2), a 20-year old University student, trains out of the Bangkok Thonburi University MuayThai gym ? is a former world champion at 60 kgs ? is moving down a weight class for this contest, a fight she told the WBC she is incredibly proud to be selected to represent her countries National sport against the formidable Ashdown.

On behalf of our global WBC MuayThai Chairman, Pol. Gen. Kovid Bhakdibhumi and all our team at the WBC we wish both ladies the very best of luck for the upcoming clash of titans.
