World Lethwei Championship women’s bantamweight champion Souris Manfredi of France returned to the win column with a vengeance in her first bareknuckle fight at BKK 1 in Thailand Friday.
Manfredi was trying to shake off a rare two-fight losing skid and did so in a big way, registering a first-round TKO victory over Thailand’s Kesorn Saenlakhon.
Manfredi knocked Saenlakhon earlier in the round, but the gutsy Thailand opponent got back up and moved forward. After some exchanges, Manfredi floored her again with a right uppercut that put her down for good.

Manfredi is expected to return to action later this year.
