So, after hearing the painful news about Rigel's non-fight, it was time to focus on my fight.
I would be fighting the first round of the 8 man tournament of the continents best 140 lb fighters. My first round opponent was "Nasty" Nate Smandych, a tough young fighter with lots of high level experience, even though he has only a handful of pro fights. Barring maybe one other fighter in the tournament, he was one of the opponents i was most worried about going into the… Continue

This weekend promised to be a crazy one with both myself and Rigel fighting back-to-back nights on opposite corners of the continent.
He was scheduled to fight agaings Ryan "The Lion" Madigan at the Friday Night Fights event in Manhattan on Friday. Both fighters made weight. The event went as scheduled, mostly. All the other fights of the evening happened as planned. Both Rigel and Ryan made their way to the ring. Rigel performed his Ram Muay and was all set to fight. But, there was… Continue

Dudes and dudettes. It's looking like The Cool Hearts Breaking class is going to get hot steppin this thursday, from 6:30 to 7:30. Come early if your'e going to the later Muay Thai class, or stay later after the first Muay Thai class. We'll be using the back room, which will be space-heated so no one pulls any muscles or suffers general discomfort, other than the discomfort of getting cut kicked by Justin when you do moves wrong. Just kidding. Maybe. No but seriously, come check it out,… Continue

Hey everybody. So this update is quite late, but i haven't yet made a post since my last fight, so i thought it was necessary.
On Dec 3rd, i had my last fight at the Friday Night Fights event in NYC. I fought Mike Erosa from Puerto Rico.
Mike was a tough opponent. But things ended in my favor. I won a Unanimous Decison after 5 rounds.
Mike was my first southpaw opponent. It made things difficult. It was really hard to get my rhythm and i felt like i couldn't get to him… Continue

Howdy everybody. So this past week was Thanksgiving for most of you kids. For me, it was "watch all your friends and family eat what they want and curse them softly under your breath". That's right. Thanksgiving didn't really happen for me this year. Not because I've revoked my citizenship and become a Thanksgiving-hating citizen of the UK, but because I HAVE A FIGHT.
Thats right, I'm fighting again on Friday 12/3. I was actually toying with the idea of changing my fight name to "I fight… Continue

So the last few weeks, I've been doing some serious business. I've been trying to get a lot going with helping doing a million online things.
You might notice the little sponsors margin on the right side is constantly growing.
Most recently, i put up a link to my P90X profile. It's pretty awesome. You can get a discount because I'm an official 'coach' with P90X.
All the products are available online, including videos and workout regimens, even their affiliate companies like the… Continue

So howdy boys and girls.
This weekend was indeed radical. I want to thank everyone who came out to support and all those who were thinking good thoughts for us.
Both Rigel and myself won tko victories over our opponents via leg kicks. Mine in round 2, his in round 4.
It was an amazing experience fighting on the same card as him. I'd never even seen him fight live before.
I really hope everyone enjoyed the fights.
Saturday, we had a little ge together at the… Continue

Ok, so this Friday is the friday night fights event that both me and Rigel are fighting on. Awesome!
Then, Saturday, we'll be hanging at the gym and talking aboutthe fights. We're gonna have a "Halloween ain't over" party. You're encouraged to come, dress up, bring food and drinks, watch awesome horror movies, and have a rad time.
It'll be saturday night. I'm thinking around 8pm, but let me know what you guys wanna do if there's any other ideas.

Ok, so it's fight week. It's always insane at this point. I have so much to get together before the fight and no time to do it.
Today pretty much sucked. This week consists of an over-hydration for a few days. Today is the worst one. I drank 3 gallons of water today. Sounds bad, but let me explain it a little more closely... It really consists of pounding water every second of the day, racing to the bathroom every couple of minutes, not being abl to concentrate and just overall… Continue

So, we're approaching the target not much bigger than a wamprat, which I used to bullseye back in begger's canyon back home...
We're just over 2 weeks out from our fight on the Friday Night Fights event in NYC on the 5th of November.
It's goin well, though im still a little right from my fight a couple weeks ago. At this point, it seems like I'm just healing up in time for my next fight every time out. Ha. Training is overrated anyway. (I'm jk kids, train hard and eat your… Continue

^^^ get it? hahaha...anyway, watching you hold mitts for Kru last night was pretty dope. He looks crazy good, those leg kicks at even at half power where still making me wince. Best part though, was this crazy excited look you were getting in your eye whenever he would really nail a combo. Awesome stuff....can't wait for the 5th

Who remembers that Pizza Hut commerial in the 90's with Deion Sanders? It's his face, being awesome, partying and stuff. Then the voice in the commercial asks "Deion, what will it be...baseball, football?" and he says "Bowf"
then "What will it be....15, 20 million?" "Bowf"
"Stuffed Crust, Pepperoni?" "Bowf"
So, if i had to ask you, "Who would you rather watch fight on the Friday Night Fights' Fall Brawl show...Rigel, Justin?"

I've been thinking a lot recently about what makes a lot of people I know different from the rest of the planet's population.
There's a special kind of person drawn to our camp. I mean, there are lots of reasons that someone would start training. Some people want to train muay Thai, jiu jitsu, or mma just to get a sweat on and get in shape. Some people train to impress girls or their buddies or even themselves. Some want desperately to feel tough. Some love watching fights and just want to… Continue
