Myanmar’s Bozhena Antoniyar loses in her first international fight

The two-time Myanmar national boxing champion Bozhena Antoniyar was knocked out by Rika Ishige of Thailand in their mixed martial arts atom weight clash at the Impact Arena in Bangkok, Thailand last Saturday.
        The end came at 2:48 of round one.
        Myanmar’s Bozhena “To To” Antoniyar was the fastest knockout fighter in ONE Championship women’s history with a 24-second TKO in February.
        To To tried to replicate her last fight style; she resorted to punches and knee thrust while her adversary defended an outside leg trip which brought Antoniyar to the ground.
        Rika Ishige’s strategy worked and won. Antoniyar was not able to struggle out from Rika.
        Rika swiftly mounted on opponent and added a couple of punches from the top position when the umpire stopped the fight. At this moment, hometown fighter defeated Antoniyar.
        The first international fight was not a good start for Antoniyar.
        Actually, Antoniyar, 23, could not match Rika Ishige, in neither grappling nor experiences, because Rika Ishige has more experiences than her also in wrestling and JuJitsu skills.
        “It was a great sadness not only for me but also for my spectators. Although Myanmar fans hope for the best, I was not able to make it,” Antoniyar told The Myanmar Times.
        “When I get back Myanmar, I will go to my hometown and stay there for about one week. And then I’ll come back to training and prepare for the next fight,” she added. According to The One Championship, the winner said, “I will keep working harder, and keep improving,” after the fight. “I vow to become Thailand’s first ever mixed martial arts World Champion in ONE Championship. That is my goal.”
