Supermom Kicks Butt In And Out Of The Ring

LAS VEGAS (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – You wouldn’t want to meet this kick-ass mother of two in a back alley – or in the Muay Thai ring.

Lisa “The Black Widow” King was one of three women fighters chosen to fly to Thailand to train for a Muay Thai competition in the new reality movie Fight Girls.

King has been competing in the sport – which allows fighters full use of their hands, elbows, knees and feet – for about three years and says she has even gotten her 15-year- old daughter in on the act.

Mother and daughter train together after school and King says her daughter even brings friends to watch her mom kick butt in competitions.

King says her daughter and 6-year-old son don’t even flinch when she’s out in the ring and her son even inspired her “Black Widow” nickname.

As King puts it: “He wanted me to be a superhero.”

Fight Girls premieres Monday (Aug. 7) on the Oxygen Network.
