Iman Barlow vs Fani Peloumpi

Thanks to the new openness of Iman’s father, who has protectively guarded filming of Iman’s fights since she was a young girl, we have fantastic coverage of Iman in action vs Fani Peloumpi. Rew Mitchell of R-Awakenings – a site celebrating and promoting female Muay Thai – captures the action intimately, including pre-fight footage, the entire Ram Muay of both fighters and a ringside camera.

 

Spoiler:

Iman just had too much technique, cardio and aggression for a worthy opponent. She’s non-stop in this fight, high, low, hands, legs, inside outside. She told me in interview that she expects to have the cardio advantage in a fight and we really see her relentless fighting style, which is still always on balance. Everyone is waiting for a van Soest vs. Barlow super match.

If you don’t know about Iman yet she’s been fighting since she was little. I had the chance to interview her via Skype, excerpts and great pics are found here: Meet Female Pro Muay Thai Fighter Iman Barlow with the full transcript and (poor) video here: An Interview with Pro Female Muay Thai Fighter Iman Barlow.

Can’t wait to see more of Iman’s fights, and I hope Rew is able to keep bringing us quality female Muay Thai coverage.

Video was found via Rosy Hayward’s Female Muay Thai on Facebook Group.

Female FightersMuay Thai

A 100 lb. (46 kg) female Muay Thai fighter. Originally I trained under Kumron Vaitayanon (Master K) and Kaensak sor. Ploenjit in New Jersey. I then moved to Thailand to train and fight full time in April of 2012, devoting myself to fighting 100 Thai fights, as well as blogging full time. Having surpassed 100, and then 200, becoming the westerner with the most fights in Thailand, in history, my new goal is to fight an impossible 471 times, the historical record for the greatest number of documented professional fights (see western boxer Len Wickwar, circa 1940), and along the way to continue documenting the Muay Thai of Thailand in the Muay Thai Library project: see patreon.com/sylviemuay
