Welcome to my first Blog Post! After months of talking and planning I am excited to tell you all that my new website, blog and clothing line is now under way.
As some of you may know I have the biggest fight of my career lined up on July the 7th in Las Vegas ….something most young fighters can only dream of.
I have now been away at the American Top Team gym in Fort Lauderdale America for five weeks, with just three weeks left of my fight camp. Back in January I made the HUGE decision to leave my gym in Manchester to go over to A.T.T, which at the time seemed a big leap to make. However I can honestly say it has been the best decision I have made so far in my fight career! I have got to meet and train with some of the best in the business… and to be the best, we must train with the best!
I have never had any doubt in my ability, however since being at A.T.T my fight game has already changed dramatically (which, I think you will agree showed in my last fight). I am now onto my second camp and I learn more each day over here. Although it is difficult being so far from my family, being over here I can make the steps I need to reach my goal of World champion.
Two weeks ago, I had the opportunity to go to the Fighters Retreat in Las Vegas. (Bare in mind that I came from The Republic of Congo and quite literally grew up with nothing, this is the kind of thing you could never imagine would happen in your lifetime) There I got to meet huge names, see all of the amazing UFC facilities and the bright lights of Vegas, not to forget watching Snoop Dogg at a private performance. It was such an amazing experience, one which has just spurred me on to work even harder and make sure that I go all the way in this business!
Over the next four weeks I will be doing regular blogs, updating you on everything going on like diet, training, weight cut, press events, the weigh-ins…. As well as my new fight wear line, so don’t forget to check out my new page regularly!
