Tell us your Koh Phangan story...
I’ve been here off and on for 6 weeks, I came with my girlfriend Sonia so she could see the guys at Phanganist Hostel again.
I discovered Diamond Muay Thai and fell in love with the gym and had training every day and have been trying to get a fight before I leave.
What is it like training at diamond?
Twice a day, intense, the trainers they really spend a lot of time with you and it makes the gym become a family so it’s a really great experience and I want to come back and train again there.
Did you have experience before?
Not in Muay Thai but I do in MMA in Amercia, amature Boxing, Kickboxing tournaments and Wrestling.
How did you prepare for the fight on the 10th of May?
I stayed late all week, only ate raw vegetables before the fight and then the day before I packed on the carbs and protein and have a lot of energy before, keep a good mind set and not get too far in my own head.
How was the fight?
Good, it went kinda how I prepared for it. I started with a front kick to keep distance as I knew I had height, from there I kept the aggression moving forward and kept a lot of pressure, I saw him get tired and took advantage from there.
So you won…
Yes, first round knock out, I think the fight was 2 minutes or under.
Will you continue Muay Thai in the future?
