Casey Walters im 29yr old and train at Street Smart Thai boxing centre in Hervey bay Queensland. I have had 13 fights.
1. How long have you been training Muay Thai and what made you want to fight? Training 4 years, I believe i was born to be a fighter so that’s what I do.
2. Whats been your biggest challenge as a female fighter? Male or female it’s a tough sport!
4. Hardest fight and why? All girls I fought are tough, I enjoyed every one
5. Proudest moment? winning my first QLD strap love that I was working split shifts at the sheet factory which is hard dirty work in 40 degree heat. Training on smoko and in the gym sparring and training every opportunity I could, Was a good rematch I felt like I’d earned it.
6. What do think will help to improve and promote Female Muay Thai in Australia? I’m not about encouraging women to get into a physically demanding sport. You gotta have it in you! For the one who do, work hard, sell tickets a ‘rip it up’
7. Do you find it hard Training with so many males? I always played with boys in the play ground at school ‘ninja turtles’ & mucked around on the wynnum footy fields with my bro’s & mates , so I’m used to blokes.
8. Any embarrassing moments? How longs a piece of string
9. Whats next for you in 2013? My trainer sets up fights and I turn up
10. Any advise for any females wanting to start training or fighting? The only advice I can offer, is get into it for right reasons. Just start
Any last words or people you would like to thank? Lastly I count my blessings and give thanks to my team mates ‘i hate the mushy stuff’
But they’re the ones who put up with me every day in the gym. They are a good reason to turn up everyday for. The best thing a fighter can do is supporting others when your times passed I love seeing people ‘give back’ an pass down to the up coming talent.
