The UCLU Muay Thai side are looking strong for tomorrow’s fight against KCLSU, where 6 seasoned fighters will battle it out in the ring.

The UC Muay Thai Varsity squad has been training hard for months. Members have even gone to boxing camps in Thailand and  trained with world-class international instructors.

During Reading Week, UC Muay Thai  went to Amsterdam to train at Mike’s Gym, one of the best Muay Thai gyms outside of Thailand.

With this wealth of experience and quality training, our UC fighters are prepared to bring home Varsity victory against King’s.
