Born in Sing Buri Thailand, Sawsing is one of the most decorated female fighters in Muay Thai, with over 170 victories under her belt as a professional Muay Thai fighter.

Todd discovered Muay Thai in her 20s, but that didn’t stop her from winning Gold at the IFMA Pan American Championship. Todd’s accomplishments as a kickboxer eventually got her signed by ONE Championship, where she squared off against Stamp Fairtex for the promotion’s Muay Thai Atomweight title. Todd lost her first fight against Stamp but came back to defeat her for the kickboxing Atomweight title. She’s another one of the female kickboxers you want to keep an eye out for. 

 

8) Tiffany Van Soest

Tiffany has faced many of the best female kickboxers on the planet and emerged victorious most of the time. Unlike most Muay Thai fighters, she started with Shorin-Ryu Karate where she earned a second-degree black belt.

9) Iman Barlow

With over 96 victories in 106 professional Muay Thai fights, few would disagree with Barlow being on our list. A powerful striker, 38 of her victories came via knockout

Barlow’s training started at the age of five under the instruction of her mother, who was a Thai boxer. She’s already won most of the titles a female kickboxer can win and won the Muay Thai Addict League World 55 kg title in her last outing. 

 

10) Sylvie Von Duuglas-Ittu

Sylvie has the honor of having more fights than any other foreigner in the history of Muay Thai fights in Thailand with over 269 fights under her belt despite starting Muay Thai in her mid-twenties. She started Muay Thai in 2008 and immediately fell in love with the sport. She moved to Thailand shortly after discovering the sport and has been competing ever since. She’s not slowing down either, with over five fights in 2022.

Not surprisingly, Sylvie struggled early on during her amateur days, but she quickly turned things around. She’s currently on a 15-fight winning streak, with eight of her victories coming via knockout
