I wanted to share this with UGM bc I’m excited as hell and proud to say I’ve came as far as I have in the last few months thanks to some help and advice from some of you guys here on the forum and a big THANK YOU TO @Iron_Junkie_Labs for helping me reach my goals of climbing through these weight classes and helping me to not only rededicate myself to my craft but be as dominant now as I once was.
I’ve been fighting at flyweight & bantamweight most of my life recently been tearing thru the featherweight (125lb) division. Tomorrow is my first sparring (I say sparring bc it’s not sanctioned by a governing body, it’s a fighter from another gym) match at lightweight (132). Make no mistake about it this will be a 6 round fight/bout. We’ll weigh in today as long as we are 132 or (-2lbs) it’s on and official. I’m teetering right at 131. The guy I’m facing will make weight but tomorrow he’ll come into the ring close to 140. The guy is big and he’s good in the lightweight division, but I’m great in every division I’ve stepped into & he hasn’t seen speed and a skill-set quite like mine. Gonna be a dog fight and I can’t wait!
My next goal for my next cycle is to move up 2 more weight classes, 1st light welterweight, then welterweight of at least 147lb. and then start dedicated most of my time to developing and working with the younger up and coming fighters.
Let’s make no mistake about it, I’M READY! Bigger guy or not…in the words of the great Floyd Mayweather " Great athletes don’t fold under pressure, I preform better under pressure. So put pressure on me"
