Here's a handful of photos from the Iman Barlow vs Maritzarda Hersisia event in Melton Mowbray last weekend. It was for the Golden Belt World Muay Thai Title.
We really didn’t take many photographs, hence the unusually tiny selection below. We were too wrapped up in shooting a video, for all of you that weren't able to be there but wanted to see the fight. When shooting a video, we try to capture the mood back stage also - this pre-fight preparation is often forgotten about by those in a crowd at an event - plus we find it fascinating!

One thing that is worth mentioning is the temperature of the building these ladies had to warm up in. It was easily pushing zero degrees, and they just worked through it - business as usual!
Iman Barlow's next fight is against Lorena Klijn (NLD) on March 22nd in Dublin, Ireland.
Maritzarda Hersisia is possibly fighting at the beginning of April in the UK. Exact details are still unclear.
