Sunday, July 19, 2020: Last night witnessed the return to competitive action for the sport of MuayThai in Canada with the good people at the MuayThai World Cup hosting their first event of 2020.

The location was quite a serene one ? outdoors ? on the lands of the Tsuu T?ina Nation, on the outskirts of Calgary, with a beautiful backdrop of mountains and national parks to enhance the uniqueness of the event.

The headline contest for the show pitted Cody Jerome against Kyle Messenger for the vacant WBC MuayThai Canadian super-welterweight title.

The fight began in fiery fashion as both combatants set about looking to implement their game plans and strategies. It was Cody who struck first, landing a thunderous spinning elbow to the jaw of his opponent, sending him to the canvas for an eight count. Kyle rose to his feet, took the count, and before they could engage the action?.the bell rang to end the round.

What followed was four rounds of back and forth action which served both fighters and their camps proud of both men?s performances.

When the final bell rang and the three judges? scores were tallied it was to be Cody?s day as he scored a unanimous points decision to become the new WBC MuayThai super-welterweight champion of Canada.

On behalf of WBC MuayThai President, Pol. General Kovid Bhakdibhumi, and the entire team at the WBC MuayThai, we would like to send a special word of thanks to Kieran Keddle and everyone involved with the MuayThai World Cup for putting on this event during these testing times.
