The main event for Australian Muay Thai Promotions 20 year Celebrations was WA’s International Champion “Black Tiger” Dusan Salva defending his middleweight crown against New Zealand’s Shannan Foreman. The bout began with Foreman throwing caution to the wind throwing big hands and chopping low kicks to Salva. Throughout the next few rounds, Salva began to take a hold of the early onslaught and fought back with well timed kicks to the rump of Foreman and took control to steady himself and counter with rippling body kicks and pummeling punches when Foreman was on the ropes. Although the power in Foreman’s hands were there, he just couldn’t seem to find his range with the target. With Salva taking control from round four the WBC International title stayed in the West, taking the win by unanimous points decision, as well as Salva finding a new type of ‘skilled’ fight style.

August the Muay Thai skilled technician decided he would destroy the Iranian’s leg, turning a first round of high-low combos display into a lowkick quadricep hammering until the very last bell.
