Put it in your calendar. The fight is going to be in Lowell MA in the USA and I’m fighting Carl Valle who is a coach of Olympians, SEC Footballers, All Stars in several sports as well as High School track champions.
Carl Valle said….
I challenge you to a boxing fight next summer for a boxing on June 15th. You are the boxing strength coach and make so much money being a guru so you should be ready to go. We will be in Lowell MA and we will video this.
I love to have something to train for…so stay tuned.
It Gets Better and Better
So now after some negotiating…I’m not going to be boxing after all. I’m going to be fighting two guys at the same time and it will be under the rules governing MMA in Massachusetts. I haven’t been so excited or so motivated to train for something in such a long time.
The bit that I love about it is that it will also give me a chance to post more about training for MMA. I actually do work with a number of boxers and mixed martial artist of different varieties and it will give me more of opportunity to engage more with them on their own terms.
I have also had a large number of emails from people involved in MMA in the US who have made very generous offers to help me prepare for the date. You’d actually be surprised how many coaches have to put up with people talking shit about them on the internet. Coaches who just wished they were given the opportunity that I’ve been presented with who want to do absolutely everything they can to help me out…funny that.
I wonder if there will be a similar group of internet bullshit artists who will all put their shoulders to the wheel and combine the knowledge they gathered from all the athletes they’ve ‘worked with’ to prepare the lads as well as I am going to prepare…lets hope so.
The lads who are fighting me are taking care of the organisation…the date, time, location and the referee…all I have to do is show up.
I’ve suggested the 4th of July…mainly because as we all know…the 4th of July is celebrated in the US to this day in memory of the day that Rock Balboa went 12 rounds with Apollo Creed the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world.
