Training: I train with multiple gyms and fighters, such as Sadhu bot, Mickey Mitchell, Derrick bright my kick boxing coach, and many others
When and why did you start training for fighting? I train all areas for this fight but my best work is in the striking department, I started training and fighting back when I was 16 and did it for fun at first then i did so know one would try to pick on me in school, then I got good at it and everything goes from there, I’ve headlined or 20 plus events with countless UFC, Bellator, and Onefc fighters on my undercard, injuries and bad decisions have plagued me but I’m back and better then ever.
What ranks and titles have you held?
I’ve held 4 titles in 4 different weight divisions
And defended them on multiple occasions, I’m a bantamweight XMA champion, welterweight kick boxing champion, super welterweight kickboxing champion, and super middleweight kick boxing champion, and am currently ranked in the bottom of the 125lb, 135lb, and 145lb Hawaii rankings online.
Do you have any heroes? Chuck Liddle was one of my heroes back in the day hence my mohawk and wild striking style, favorite techniques overhand right good night, and head kicks from either side I’ve put many opponents down in my day
What does it mean for you to fight in X1 World Events? Means everything to me,I’ve never had the pleasure of fighting MMA on an x1 card but got my pro boxing career going back in the day and I’m very appreciative of the time x1 has put into the entire fight scene and events for fighters like myself who wouldn’t be able to do what we love without it
