Multiple Thai boxing champion Ruth Walker will be one of the star names for the latest Storm fighting event at Aylesbury’s Waterside Theatre next weekend.

Walker from Total Dojo in Milton Keynes will be fighting at Storm 4 on June 8 against Nicole Commerford from Gym London South to contest the vacant K1 British title.

The storm events are the brainchild of Aylesbury’s Pegasus Gym owner and kickboxing champ, Steven Cook.

Walker is the current ISKA Southern Area Thai boxing champion, ICO Southern Area thai boxing champ, ISKA English K1 champ and ringmasters Thai boxing champ.

Speaking ahead of the event, Cook said: “Ruth hopes to win the British title and then move onto fighting the current world champion by the end of this year or early next year on another Storm event.

“We are privileged to have such a prestigious fighter fighting on the Storm shows who is also local talent.

“As I’ve mentioned before we want to grow the platform for local talent to be able to perform on their own doorstep but also help local fighters to grow and offer opportunities that they may not necessarily get elsewhere.
