My first kickboxing fight was last 12/01/18 at Xumout 27 - Winter Soldiers. Watch the full fight below. So much has led up to this moment and it feels good to have achieved my goal of winning an amateur kickboxing fight. My original opponent dropped out the day of the fight so I am thankful to Thomas Edwards for taking this fight on last minute notice, giving me the opportunity to dance under the lights.
Training hard for this fight has changed me and taught me a lot about discipline, consistency and going beyond what I thought my body was capable of. I now have a deeper love and respect for martial arts and am aware this is only scratching the surface of a life-long passion. At the end of the day, I am reminded the most important thing is the relationships and the community that I am honored to be a part of. Big thanks my coaches / teachers / sparring partners and everyone at Mata-Leao Combat Sports and EchoValor Striking & MMA.
People are asking when my next fight will be and I don't know.. I feel like my next chapter will be focused on music and my next album. I definitely want to continue to train, spar with the guys and develop my Muay Thai skills and potentially take on a higher level opponent in the future. We'll see... For now I am going to enjoy a burger + chocolate milkshake 😊
I am also excited to announce that Lightning Creative is putting together a doc about my journey with training for the fight and my music! Can't wait to share this, stay tuned! Thank you for all your support 🙏 Salute and One Love 🌌
