Biography and career[edit]

Vítor Miranda was born in Joinville, Santa Catarina, Brazil. When growing up, he was interested in martial arts but did not start training before turning 21, when his friend introduced him to Muay Thai. After only two years of practice and at the same time working part-time as a video store clerk, Vitor turned pro in 2001. He made his K-1 debut in 2003, quit his job and became a full-time fighter.[1]

Vitor's first K-1 fight was on February 23, 2003 at K-1 Brazil GP. He lost the fight against Carlos de Lima by unanimous decision. On October 22, 2005, he entered the K-1 Heavyweight Factory tournament in Sao Paulo and accomplished the first success in his young career by winning the Grand Prix by three consecutive KO's over Nelson Vargas, Lucio Silva and Asmir Burgic.[2]

After two years of fighting in smaller shows in Brazil, he was selected to participate in one of the regional K-1 qualifying tournaments, on November 2, 2007 in Istanbul, Turkey. On his quarter finals Vitor was matched up against local fan favorite Erhan Deniz. He won the hard fought battle by majority decision, as well as his other next two fights in the evening and was declared the K-1 Turkey champion. The win qualified him for K-1 European Elimination GP held on February 9, 2008 in Budapest, Hungary.

He defeated Tsotne Rogava by unanimous decision in the first round of the 2013 Tantneft Cup on February 23, 2013.[3][4]

Currently Vitor trains in the US at Imperial Athletics in Boca Raton, FL
