The Zimmern Shodan Gym Fighter qualified for the World Championship in the Kick Light and Pointfighting categories. In Kick Light, Siftsy defeated Caleb Carson of the USA to advance to the final against Northern Irishman Brady Lowry. Here in Thailand the hard training paid off as Siftsi didn’t give her opponent a chance and was able to celebrate a World Cup gold medal amongst her rivals.

In the points fight, Siftsi knocked out an American and then a Welshman in the preliminary fight. In the semifinals he had to concede defeat to a Mexican, but was able to celebrate the bronze medal. Ciftci has achieved extraordinary results in Canada and established itself internationally. It shouldn’t be long before more success on the big stage. Red
