KICKBOXER Liz Earp of Lesmurdie competed Sunday, December 4 at the WA Thai Boxing’s Ignition Muay Thai, which included WMC super middleweight Australian title and MTA super lightweight state title bouts.
Earp from Kalamunda Kickboxing & Martial Arts, who fights in the super feather weight (59kg to 61kg), won her bout by split decision.
In November Earp won her bout at the Ray Owen Recreation Centre against a more experienced opponent with seven bouts under her belt compared with Earp’s two bouts at that stage.
The mother of two, who runs a pool shop with her husband Brad, first started at the gym in January 2012, at the age of 38 and had her first fight in July this year.
Her coach Bruce Macfie said she was an inspiration to all the fighters at Kalamunda and she was the heart and sole of the group.
“She puts in 100 per cent in every session and it shows in her bouts,’’ he said.
