SO THEN CARLY, YOU MAY JUST BE OUR FIRST EVER UK 'BABE' THAT ACTUALLY COMPETES? TELL US MORE!
I thought some of the other girls would have done some fighting as Martial arts is becoming more popular, so that has shocked me! I only started Muay Thai to loose weight but its really addictive and I ended up getting roped in to doing an Inter club. I wasn't keen to fight at first but I ended up loving it, and went on to do the full shows. I haven't been doing it for very long really, only about 15 months but i love it! And the weight has come off which was the whole point in me starting
HOW DOES IT FEEL TO BE A FIGHTERS ONLY 'BABE'?
Its really nice. I was asked to do it by friends! I didn't send the pics in myself, I would be too embarrassed! Thank you Fightshop!
YOU OBVIOUSLY MAINTAIN YOUR GREAT FIGURE THROUGH TRAINING BUT DO YOU PARTICIPATE ANY OTHER SPORTS?
I mainly keep in shape by doing Thai, but I've always been in to keeping fit. I swim a lot and i like to do weights as well, especially if I'm fighting, for upper body strength. Daz who does our Thai training at the club, makes us sprint and run to the ends of the Earth whilst training before a fight, he actually screams at us!
DO YOU HAVE A FAVOURITE FIGHTER OR ROLE MODEL?
I love Gina Carano! She is brilliant! She moved on to MMA but i think she was better at Thai. I also think that Ruth Ashdown and Julie Kitchen are wicked fighters!
WOULD YOU EVER CONSIDER COMPETING IN AN MMA BOUT?
I love to watch MMA, but I prefer training and fighting in Thai boxing. I would probably find an MMA fight too claustrophobic! At least in Thai, the only time you feel closed in is in the clinch!
WHERE CAN WE SEE MORE OF YOU?
I will be fighting at Ikon in November (2009) so get your tickets and come support me. I think my fight will be on p4tv.com. My first fight is actually on there! I hate my first fight, Its terrible! i wish they would take it off! Ha ha!
