Eva Howell from Arklow has become the new ISKA ladies amateur K1 kickboxing 60kg Irish Champion.

Eva started her martial arts training at the age of 10 with Arklow Ravens Tae Kwon do club and had gained her black belt by the age of 15. In August 2021, she started training in K1 kickboxing with Naas Kickboxing and gym.

Dawid of Naas Kickboxing and Gym said of the fight:

‘Eva after 3 great performances deserved a title shot, last night she got that opportunity! The first two rounds were extremely tough for Eva but she never let that get her down and fought with all her heart. She listened, stuck to the plan. The clean low kicks and body kicks gave her the advantage. It was a very close fight, but Eva got the win.’
