My name is Caitlin Foran and I’m 20 Years of age.
I started kickboxing in 2008 at the age of eight, at the time I was juggling
kickboxing with lots of other sports and activities but over time my attention just stuck with kickboxing and it became my life.
I then started competing usually once a month with the first big one being
the WKA Scottish championships in Glasgow where I won 2x golds, that
was my first big confidence booster and I went on to compete more often
winning more Scottish titles as well as British and European.
I then got invited to my first world championships in 2013 in Italy where I
came away with a bronze medal.
I always preferred points fighting when I was competing, which is a more
karate style, ‘start stop’ style of fighting, but at my second World
championships in Prague in 2014, there was a woman without a fight for
her ring Continuous section so I was asked if I would take the fight.
I’ve never been one to turn down a fight so I took the fight and ended up
winning it as well as two others so I came away with my first three
World titles and new love for ring fighting.
From 2014 to 2017 I went on to win seven more World titles in various countries. By 2016/17 my kickboxing career was really taking off and I was looking at turning professional sometime soon, however at the end of 2017 my coach Ryan Reffell sadly passed which put an end to my kickboxing career. I switched disciplines to Professional Boxing in 2020 and secured my first win in July
