UK Muay Thai Boxer preps for his biggest match

One of the UK's biggest Muay Thai events is taking place in Birmingham this weekend.

Londoner Greg Wootton is facing off against the highly-rated 19 year-old Thai fighter Rungrat Sasiprapa.

We went down to have a chat with Greg about his long links to the East End, and his hopes for the future.

The Main Event show will see Wootton, along with some of the world’s other top Muay Thai fighters compete.

Muay Thai is the ancient fighting art of Thailand and originated hundreds of years ago.

This form of fighting uses punches, kicks, knees and elbows and is sometimes known as ‘the art of eight limbs’ and is a style that lends itself to non-stop action.

Wootton is one of several headlining fighters on what promises to be one of the most exciting fight cards in any combat sport.

All of the other fighters for The Main Event Arena Tour in Birmingham, including Wootton’s opponent, will be announced in due course.

Tickets are available now via the box office 08443 388000 or
