Female Professional Champion Muay Thai Fighter Christine Toledo Brings Home Victory From China
Las Vegas Female Professional Champion Muay Thai Fighter Christine Toledo, who is officially sponsored by Bizwala.com, arrived back to the USA with a trophy in hand from earning a victory this past weekend in Zhengzhou, China on November 15, 2008.
Jonathan Remund, President of Bizwala commented by saying, “We are excited about Christine’s win. She’s proven to many that she is a world class competitor. We take pride in sponsoring her and we support her all the way.”
Toledo entered the ring with a record of 13 wins and 2 losses. Her Chinese opponent came into the fight with a record of 18 wins and 3 losses. The two were fairly matched by record and experience level before battling each other in a bout scheduled for three rounds. Toledo and her Chinese opponent were contracted at 52 kg (114.4 lbs).
Of five Americans to represent the U.S. fight team, Toledo was the only female fighter. In the bout between Toledo and her Chinese opponent, Toledo had placed a devastating knee to her opponent’s midsection in the first few seconds in round one which resulted in a knock down. As the referee counted, the audience did not expect her to continue, but at the last second of the eight-count, she stood up with determination to finish the fight.
The Chinese fighter looked to be hurt through the remaining minutes of the round. After getting back up, it seemed the Chinese fighter’s goal was to stay at bay from Toledo and to go the distance until the end of the bout by circling the ring, moving backwards and escaping from Toledo’s clinch and knee techniques. Toledo was the aggressor throughout the fight. The Chinese fighter used countering technique and attempted several times to land powerful side kicks, but Toledo’s footwork, timing, and countering skills showed she was the better fighter that night.
“My opponent was very tough, strong and fast. I was a little frustrated with her style as she was “slippery”
Toledo adds, “Even though I won this fight, I feel I could have done so much more. It was a different fight for me with rules I’m not used to. I prefer full Muay Thai rules, but I wanted to take on the challenge regardless and experience a great opportunity to fight on Chinese turf.”
Toledo won the bout by unanimous decision and improved her record to 14 wins and 2 losses. According to the event promoter and staff, Toledo made history by being the first female from a foreign country to win over a Chinese female from the same league. They were pleased with her performance and have already invited her back for future events.
“We welcome Christine back home to the United States and look forward to her continued success,” says Jonathan Remund.
