Romford local to compete for world title at indigo at The O2 on November 10

Falcon Kickboxing Club in Romford will hope to be toasting a new world champion on November 10 as Sarah Worsfold goes for glory at indigo at The O2.

Worsfold is scheduled to meet Niamh Kinnehan in a fight for the Kickboxing Grand Prix (KGP) 64.5kg world title later this month.

Should Worsfold win, the Falcon member will add another strap to an already lengthy list of honours.

And it seems all is going well for the 28-year-old as she prepares for one of the biggest fights of her career.

Speaking to UKFightSite.com, the Romford local said: “I’m really looking forward to the fight.

“I’m keeping my fight camp the same, but also learning some new bits. I’m fighting a southpaw opponent, so I’ve been working on stuff for that.”

In Kinehan, Worsfold will come up against a testing rival from Manchester who will be as determined to win the world title.

But the 28-year-old feels she has all the attributes needed to overcome Kinehan at The O2 Arena on November 10.

“Niamh is good and quite technical, but I don’t think she’s got anything I won’t be able to handle,” added the Falcon member.

“It will be a good fight if it goes the distance, or hopefully I can get an early stoppage – we shall see.”

The Muay Thai Grand Prix show at indigo at The O2 on November 10 features a packed bill in addition to Worsfold’s bout.

Also scheduled for action are Carlton Lieu, Iman Barlow, Evan Jays, Michael Pham, Gianopiero Sportelli, Dale Hughes, Luke Whelan, Grace Spicer and Sean O’Neill.

It looks set to be another night of top class kickboxing that fans across London can enjoy.
