Kitchen, who has won 14 Muay Thai world championships, is recognized as the most successful female fighter ever in the United Kingdom and possibly the world. Nakamoto has won six world titles and became the first American-born female fighter to win the World Boxing Council Super Lightweight world championship when she knocked out Luxembourg’s Claire Haigh in the first round on August 21, 2010 in Haikou City, China on a WCK Muaythai event.
This historic fight will be held at the Pala Casino Resort and Spa between the two best female standup fighters in the world. It is the best American female fighter Miriam Nakamoto known as the Queen of Mean with her devastating knockout power versus United Kingdom’s Julie Kitchen, dubbed as “The Queen of Muaythai” for her 14 world championship titles and fantastic classic Muaythai fighting style. “This will be the greatest female fight of this decade,” commented Dennis Warner, the president of In Sync Productions. “This will be the Ali vs Frazier of female fighting. Both of these women are recognized as the best stand-up pound-for-pound fighters in the world. In Sync Productions has been promoting female stand up fighters since 1989, and Kitchen vs Nakamoto is certainly what the fans want and this fight won’t disappoint.”
In the other women’s title fights:
Tiana Caverly, 32-11-2, from Perth, Western Australia, will defend her World Boxing Council (WBC) Muaythai World Bantamweight championship against Jemyma Bertrian, 13-2, of The Netherlands.
