World champion Christie Bereton has been added to the bill for the Muay Thai Assassins next show in Melton next month.

The Devon fighter is good friends with the Melton team and spars regularly with the Assassin fighters.

She will go up against Turkey’s Elif Tugba Buk as part of the England v Turkey show at the Market Tavern on Saturday, June 13.

All of the Assassins are training hard for the event which features eight international bouts, seven of which involved hometown fighters.

Top of the bill is Iman ‘Pretty Killer’ Barlow who come up against Turkey’s Alear Dilek.

Assassins’ coach Mark Barlow said: “The Turkish team is very good; it’s the national team so it’s going to be very tough for the Assassins.

“Christie is a high class fighter and the Melton crowd will love her.”

There will also be two boxing bouts featuring Michael Robinson who faces Essex opponent Kyle Reader.

The bout will be over five two-minute rounds.

Tickets are on sale from Nicko’s Fish bar, the Assassins gym or at the Facebook pages of Assassin fighters.
