George Griffiths and Iman Barlow will both fight at the O2 after their Melton appearance EMN-180926-112321002

Iman will be the joint-headline bout at the show which takes place at the Market Tavern, in Melton, on Saturday, October 13.

The international star holds a staggering 17 world titles with several different organisations and will defend her WTKA -54kg title against tough German opponent Tamara Platter.

She said: “I haven’t fought for three months and I’m eager to get back in there and defend my title.”

The bout will begin a busy end of year for Iman who then defends her Muay Thai Grand Prix world belt at the O2, in London, in November.

The following month she moves up a weight to bid for another Enfusion world title in Holland against a hometown Dutch fighter.

Also on the bill in Melton next month will be George Griffiths who takes on tall Portuguese fighter Edi Barradas who is expected to cause a few problems.

George is also fighting on the undercard at the O2.

All tables have been sold for the Melton show, but tickets are available from Nicko’s Fish Bar and any Assassin member.

Doors open at 5pm for a 5.45pm start. For more details, visit the Assassins Muay Thai Facebook page.
