Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) January 7, 2008
Newly launched website Wfighter.com is already backing up its mission of providing a platform for women fighters and women fight sports. The creators of the site recently announced they will sponsor Christine Toledo, a professional Muay Thai fighter out of Las Vegas, as well as an upcoming fight in Tacoma, Wash., benefiting AIDS orphans in Africa through the charity Acres of Love.
"We are proud to be able to kick off 2008 by supporting not only a well-respected, talented woman like Christine but also by backing a unique event that supports both women fighters as well as an extremely important cause," said Lisa King, Wfighter.com co-founder.
Toledo is a veteran Muay Thai fighter ranked #1 in the United States and #3 in the world in her weight division by the W.I.K.B.A. Her record is 11 wins, 2 losses with her next fight scheduled for Jan. 12 at the Hilton Hotel in Las Vegas where she will fight a widely-anticipated match against Maiko Katsuyama to avenge her loss from March 2005.
Then, on Feb. 16, at the Greater Tacoma Convention & Trade Center, Wfighter.com will be one of the noted sponsors of "Thunder - Fight for Life," a non-profit Muay Thai and MMA promotion. All proceeds from the event will be donated to Acres of Love, an established Republic of South Africa non-profit organization that provides comprehensive care for abandoned and HIV positive infants and children.
"As the site grows, we will be looking for even more ways to get involved with the fighters and the fight world," said King. "So many organizations have good intentions to support women fighters, but there is so often a lack of follow through. We're just jumping right in, and I'm excited for what the next year will bring for both the Website and the world of women's martial arts."
Launched in December 2007, Wfighter.com offers breaking news, events, fight results, articles, interviews and training tips written and presented by women fighters for women fighters and fans. It provides a virtual community for all things related to women's fighting and covers all arts including women's MMA, boxing, kickboxing, wrestling and Muay Thai. Staff writers interview experts on the latest trends, gear and training techniques and also provide profiles on top women fighters and trainers. The site offers a forum, photo gallery, gym directory and a calendar of upcoming events.
