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.
