‘GUAM BOMB’ VICTORIOUS IN HIGHER WEIGHT FIGHT

MIchelle Diaz wins in NYC.

By Patrick Lujan

Michelle ‘Guam Bomb’ Diaz continued her muay thai career with a unanimous decision win over the weekend in New York City.

What made this fight different was the move up in weight.

Diaz normally fights at 105-lbs. and walks around at 112-lbs. This time, she took a fight at 114-lbs. against Florida’s Jillian Bosserdet at the Friday Night Fights Muay Thai – North America’s longest running muay thai promotion.

“Tough, tough fight against a bigger opponent, but I pulled through,” Diaz said about the last minute move up in weight.

“We ended up in clinch a lot and that’s where I felt the biggest difference. I had to use more muscle than I’m used to in a fight and it wore me out a bit. But of course, Chamorros never back down so I kept pushing and pulled through.”

Diaz improved to 8-2 in her muay thai career.
