SAPHAN HIN: A crowd of about 500 people turned up to the humid confines of Saphan Hin’s Gym 1 last night to watch the “Miss Lily Supermodel Muay Thai Championships 2006”, which pitted some of Thailand’s best female Muay Thai fighters against American fighters trained by Las Vegas-based Muay Thai trainer Thohsaphon “Master Toddy” Sitiwatjana.

Some of the matches on the card were filmed as part of a pilot for an American reality television show entitled Fight Girls, to air on Oprah Winfrey’s Oxygen cable TV network in the USA.

In addition, some of Master Toddy’s male fighter stepped into the ring.

Among the highlights for the Master Toddy stable were Gina Carano’s successful defense of her Muay Thai International Association title in a three-round decision over a feisty Bonus Sor Buraphajan in a 135lb bout; and Anthony Brown’s round 2 TKO win over Wanmai Sor Jor Suwit in the 170lb feature bout.

Reality show contestants Lisa “The Black Widow” King, Kourtney McCarty and Ariana Ramirez all lost to their more experienced Thai opponents.

Results (all bouts three rounds):

1. 115lbs: Niknem Sor Buraphajan (THA) def Lisa King (USA) by decision;

2. 120lbs: Saep Wor Por Sukhothai (THA) def Christine Toledo (USA) by TKO, Round 1;

3. 125lbs: Nongoom Sor Sompongfarm (THA) def Kourtney McCarty (USA)  by decision;
