So, in 2020 when I was starting to lose hope about my Muay Thai career (due to COVID-19 putting a halt to the Muay Thai scene) I got a life changing message from one of the biggest companies in the martial arts industry. After going through multiple interviews, I finally got offered a job to be a part of Evolve MMA Team in Singapore.
I have done a lot of things in my Muay Thai career and had great opportunities, but never had the full package where I could really focus on building a future and being financially stable – so this was life changing news for me.
It was like the universe answered me after writing this blog, I was genuinely considering retiring at one-point last year and I’m not ashamed to say that I shed a few tears about it. I just felt I was having bad luck constantly with injuries and not getting opportunities I worked hard for my whole life, then to top it off I thought COVID-19 could have potentially ruined any future plans.
I am absolutely buzzing to get the opportunity to train and coach with my former team mates from Petchyindee
– Nong O
and Sam A
alongside multiple other champions who I’ve looked up to since I was a kid. I can finally focus on a few things 1) Building a future for myself through this sport. 2) Enjoying my life and doing something I love. 3) Becoming the best fighter in the world.
I am going to keep this short and sweet as I have made a video (below) on my YouTube channel explaining things in more detail, but one thing I will say to any fighter, young fighters especially – work hard and keep the vision strong because there are opportunities out there for you to build a better life! It’s taken me 15 years to get there but I’ve got through the tough times with injury and even losing my trainer, but I always stayed on it and I’ve reaped the rewards now.
