Beautiful and dangerous, if the muay thai fighter is considered one of the best in the nation of Brazil, now Tainara Lisboa is internationally known. The Thai Center athlete left Brazil with 11 wins in 11 fights and last October went to train in Thailand to gain greater knowledge and experience.

There, she participated in major events and won them all. First she beat England’s Mary Thum at Elite Fight Night, where she won the belt; then she beat France’s then-undefeated Bakissi Laetitia at Thailand’s main event, the King’s Cup; and lastly defeated Germany’s renowned Sabine Kern at The Champions Club.

“This was just my first time in Thailand, an amazing experience. The fact that my coach Sandro de Castro went with me and it was his third trip there, plus Romristhong Gym helping me out as a training camp, greatly facilitated my adaptation. Every time our team goes there it is very well treated. It’s like we are part of the same family; it’s impressive. Later this year or early 2011 we’ll be back for sure, “says Tainara.
