Muay Thai Guy Podcast – Episode 101
At one point or another, a majority of fighters have a lull in their career due to school, work and other life priorities. Ashley Nichols was at this point and had taken a year off from competing until she had the opportunity to fight Tiffany Van Soest for the Lion Fight title in early 2016.
With that fight, her passion for fighting Muay Thai was revived. With a new sense of purpose, she decided to take the leap to move to Thailand to train at Kaewsamrit gym and pursue her Muay Thai career full on. We discuss how she came to this decision plus more including:
- How she initially got involved in boxing and other combat sports at the age of 15.
