Swedish Muay Thai fighter Emilia Koivisto might be new to the Muay Thai world, but she’s already put herself on the map on the Scandinavian fight scene.
“If I do something I go all in, Koivisto recently told Käftsmällspodden. “I decided from the start that I wanted to compete in Muay Thai.”
Just four years after stepping into the gym for the first time, she has become a force to be reckoned with.
“I’ve taken a lot of fights, right from the start. Just taking fights just to get into the game, that’s the only way to learn. I’ve fought 21 times in two years.”
