Episode 49 – Iman “Pretty Killer” Barlow

In this episode of The Striking Corner podcast, Eric & Vinny speak with current Lion Fight Super Bantamweight Champion and Enfusion 54 kg Champion, Iman Barlow! Iman is currently regarded as one of the top female Muay Thai fighters in the world in her weight class. She has not lost a fight since 2014 and with over 100+ amateur fights and close to 100 professional fights, she has a wealth of experience in the sport yet she is still just 23 years young!

Iman discusses growing up around the sport from the age of 2, her unique childhood as a fighter that travelled the world (the benefits and struggles), women’s Muay Thai, haters, rediscovering her love for Muay Thai after taking time off to be a “wild child”, and so much more. A fun interview all around and we hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

Episode 47 – Janet Todd

So what is the only difference between men and women in combat sports? Well according to California based Muay Thai fighter Janet Todd, our guest on this week’s episode of The Striking Corner, “It doesn’t hurt when we get kicked in the nether regions because…we don’t have balls.”

Yup! Eric and Vinny had a great conversation with West Coast and Boxing Works standout Janet Todd. Janet is a very accomplished amateur Muay Thai fighter with tons of skill and more than a few amateur titles to her name.

We discuss women in Muay Thai and Combat Sports, how she balances her career as an aeronautical engineer with a flourishing Muay Thai career, and why Britney Spears is the best music to train to! Check it out!
