Candi was an iconic figure in the world of female fighting, a vastly experienced wrestler and boxer who fought in a huge number of bouts for numerous companies. Small, blonde, vivacious, with a trademark gap-toothed grin, she was massively popular with enthusiasts who appreciated her fearless approach and engaging personality. She had been fighting for many years in matches including competitive and semi-competitive wrestling, semi-competitive boxing and erotic wrestling, and she was still active on the female combat scene until around 2006. In addition to her wrestling and boxing activities she maintained a career in adult movies throughout the 1990's, appearing in numerous videos, normally using her real name of Kelli Thomas.
Her most competitive matches were at Cal Supreme and Arena Girls whereas her many bouts at Leather & Lace, DT Wrestling, Steel Kittens and Joan Wise Productions were far more scripted, although equally enjoyable to watch.
Sadly, news of her death was announced in May 2016. It was reported that she had suffered a heart attack connected to complications from diabetes on 30th April at the age of only 43 years.
Due to the sheer number of fights in which she took part, Candi was matched at one time or another against most of the best known female wrestlers and boxers. She had particular rivalries with Tina, Angella, Francesca Le, and Santana, each of whom she fought on several occasions, but she also took on Robin, Jasae, Christine, Hollywood, Denise and Jewell Marceau amongst others.
