France and Ukraine Move to the Following Round in Darwin

 

It was a first day of muaythai competition in Darwin with bouts worth a final of any top event.

 

Representatives of France, Austria and Ukraine were scheduled to fight today with

 

(FRA) Quentin Alhamdou  competing against (UKR) Vladyslav Mykytas 

(UKR) Viktoriia Ivanets against (THA) Ruchira Wongsriwo 

(FRA) Anaelle Angerville against (AUT) Nina Scheucher 

 

The only male bout on the card was between the Ukrainian Vladyslav Mykytas and French Quentin Alhamdou in 57 kg. It was an interesting bout for many reasons as Quentin is a current European Champion while Vladislav was very close to winning gold in the World Championships in Mexico in a strong fight against a Thai opponent. The bout of the Europe’s best and world’s second best was in favour of the Ukrainian who was strong with his punches and clinch.

 

 

 

One of the brightest bouts of the took place between Ukrainian Viktoria Ivanets and Thai Ruchira Wongsriwo in 57 kg division. Ruchira led the score after the first round putting the victory in her pocket when Viktoria came back with a storm of kicks and knees in the second round resulting in a knock down. The bout was not meant to end in the due time with the unforeseen injury of the Thai. After the scrutiny of the referees the victory was given to Viktoria.

 

 

 

Next bout for Viktoria will be a stand off with history as she will face her arch-rival of 2018 Anaelle Angerville from France. It was two times that Anaelle upset the Ukrainian public winning Viktoria at the World Championships in Mexico, and pulled out a victory in Prague in the final of the European Championships.
This will be a bout to watch after Annaelle was stronger today against the Austrian muaythai legend 
Nina Scheucher who showed a strong will and a champion’s spirit still having to leave the competition after referees announced the victory for Annaelle.
