Now I just want to fight the best and get the exposure and pay I deserve – and I’m sure the titles will come.
Yeah, the titles are nice, but let’s be honest as soon as you either lose the title or retire from fighting everybody forgets about it and it becomes a distant memory, or as soon as you’ve stopped being as active in the fight game everybody starts to forget your achievements, it’s just one of those things.
So now I think I’ve realised that my goal isn’t necessarily to win any sort of title, I just want to fight the best, get paid what I feel I deserve and to get the exposure I deserve.
But more than that I just want to be happy and build a future whilst fighting and to keep making memories. And as a result of being happy whilst fighting I’m sure titles will come – a happy fighter is the most dangerous fighter!
This is a bit of a deep blog for me but its something I’ve wanted to share with people because I always get asked “when are you going back to Thailand?” so this probably will answer your question. I will still 100% be going back to visit and train at Petchyindee but I doubt I will move to Thailand on a permanent basis ever again.
This blog also isn’t to put any body off going to Thailand I think fighting and living in Thailand has been a big factor of why I’ve been so successful and has given me the platform to build a good reputation as a world class fighter, but my mindset and goals have changed now.
I am happier at the moment living in England, training at Bad Company gym and being around the people that are close to me still and I can also earn money and build a future for myself which in my opinion is nearly impossible to do whilst living in Thailand.
