Before getting into the fight and outcome of the match itself. Let me first thank god bc without him none of this would be possible. A big shout out to my sponsor @Iron_Junkie_Labs and I would also like to thank each and every one of you here on UGM who reached out to me here wishing me the best, and more importantly praying for me to have a safe, clean fight, and to come out of it with a victory. I cannot thank all of you here at UGM enough for welcoming me into your world, supporting me, and having my back so again…thank you all very much.
Now to break down the fight to the best of my ability, the way I broke down this fighter.
It’s in the books bro’s and sisters! 10-0 straight! Not to sound cocky but I walked this guy down and beat his ass like he stole something. I wasn’t throwing many shots or letting my hands go early on bc I wanted to see what kind of power he had in the left hand I heard so much about. I took a couple on the glove and one good one one the jaw but for the most part he couldn’t even break my guard. For the rest of the first 3 rounds he danced and ran around the ring, in my opinion he thought he was going to gas me out by having me chase him but my stamina is second to none. The fight was scheduled as an 8 round bout but I trained to go 12, so gassing out is not an option for me nor is it something that’s going to happen. 4th round opened and he decided he was going to start coming to me and that played right into what we gameplaned for. He threw a hard straight left hand that I was able to parry with my right glove and then caught him with a big counter right hook to the body followed by a combination of a devastating right over the top to the dome, (clean and loud shot right on his left ear) as he was bent over from the body shot, and as he went to stand up straight then he got caught with a solid straight left hand, right down the pipe, right on the button, (chin) followed that with a what I believe was an unnecessary right hook as he was already out on his feet. That last hook put him on his ass, but I believe the body shot is what caused the damage and finished the fight. He got up by the count of 6 or 7 but I guess he either couldn’t get his legs back or his eyes were glazed over bc the ref waved off the fight standing in front of him. I knew once I caught him with the hook to the body and he made that noise, all I had to do was connect a solid shot or two and it would be over…
And it was I can’t lie this was probably one of the top 2 or 3 wins I’ve ever had. Being able to come up from flyweight and bantamweight all the way to light Welterweight and be my size and beat a guy his size and talent. He weighed in at 140.8 but came into the ring easily weighing 145 (a full blown Welterweight) I weighed in at 140.4 and came into the ring at 139.5.
I cannot be denied now and I will start getting bigger fights which means bigger $$check$$! Also my plan is to maybe still try to get my walk around weight up to 145 but fight at Super Lightweight at (135). I will be able to cut weight for the fights and official weigh-ins and then hydrate and eat and blossom back up to 140+ for the fights like these big guys do that I’ve been beating as the smaller fighter. I have no doubt I will be unstoppable in that division and I will reign over it as long as I choose to! Thank all of you guys and gals for your support. I never imagined I’d get the support and encouragement I get from you guys which are mostly a bodybuilding and weightlifting community. I have learned so much from all of you and have played a big role in improving my training and my regimen. So thanks again UGM FAMILY!!! So extremely proud of myself! Sorry for the bit of gloating fellas but this has just been a long time coming!
