I seem to naturally have a way of staying cool and calm without letting it face me. When i fought my first professional K-1 fight, my opponent was much more experienced and bigger, however the way I looked at it and put it into perspective was this... I have managed to survive and hold my own to my best in 3x3 min rounds of hard sparring with my coaches who are with no disrespect to the lad, a league above. So what makes him any better than them? He isn't so it's game on!!
I'm there to do a job, from the second the fight is agreed and my training begins my number one goal is to beat my opponent, if I take it easy on him, is he going to take it easy on me? Not a chance!! He's going to do his best to hurt me to win, not if I do first!
Anything less than 100% is sabotage. I try to go by that quote at all times and is a great way to look at things
