Melton’s Muay Thai Assassins Gym is gearing up for a huge fortnight with three tough bouts on big shows.

Iman Barlow is first up as she goes for her 13th world title at the O2 Arena, in London, on Saturday, October 15.

Tough, experienced Turkish opponent Fanda Diken awaits Iman, known as the Pretty Killer.

Seven days later, her younger brother Thai bids for his first adult world title at a show in Watford.

Thai faces home fighter Luciano Mendola for the Roar Combat League world belt in a full Thai rules bout.

Clubmate George Griffiths will join him at the show as he makes the step-up to pro-am rules.

He faces a major test against Joe Turner, from Woking’s Skin Kick Gym.

Three weeks later the Assassins will stage their last show of the year in Melton.

Tickets go on sale next week from the Assassins Gym and Nicko’s Fish Bar.
