Lyndsey spoke about her fight and experience this evening:
"I thought my fight went really well. My Boxing felt really strong and connected with a high percentage of my punches. Some of which nearly took her head off. I connected with some good kicks and had particular success with the rear body kick to superman combo.
I used my interclub experience to keep calm, confident and composed which I think helped alot. I was more nervous going over the top rope and doing the Ram Muay as this was something new. When she didn't do a Ram Muay my confidence grew.
It was a fantastic experience and the buzz you get when the ref stops the fight and raises your hand is unbelievable. I had trained hard for this opportunity and truly grateful and pleased on how it went.

I have a great coach in Kru Neil Maltby and a great training partner in Joe Etherington who constantly pushes me. I feel like my confidence has grown because of this win and I couldn't believe the volume of support I received from everyone. It wasn't until the weekend I realised that MSA is like a family and not a bunch of clubs under the same umbrella. Honestly I do feel blessed.

My plans are to continue training and improve my kicks. I would definitely have another fight but in the meantime I will continue to train hard and do more interclubs as they are valuable experience."
Everyone from MSA would like the congratulate Lyndsey on her fantastic WIN!
