Three Battlefield MTG members had reason to celebrate after winning their respective categories at the WKU English Open Championship.

Lucie Guirey, Eddie Mahy and James Arnold all returned from the event in Solihull with titles to show for their efforts.

All three Battlefield MTG members were competing at the event under Muay Thai rules, with the competition also hosting categories with bouts under K1 (Unified).

Hornchurch’s Guirey, aged nine, was competing in the over-45kg category and secured a unanimous points win over Thaitanium Gym rival Evie Baker.

Mahy, aged eight and from Collier Row, took on Michael McDonagh of Muay Thai Gym in the under-30kg final and was another to win on unanimous points.

Hornchurch 18-year-old Arnold completed a hat-trick of unanimous points wins for Battlefield MTG members, beating Kent Tooha of Master A’s Thai Boxing in the under-70 kg final.

It was a string of fine successes for the club, which also landed two World Open titles earlier this year, and something all will look to build on in the future.
