Why I Never Backed Out Of A Fight!

When a champion has said he/she will perform an action, it is as good as done. Their word is a declaration in stone. Nothing will stop them from completing what they have said they will do. They do not have to“give their word.” They do not have to “promise.”

Out of the 40+ fights that I’ve had as a ring fighter, I NEVER signed to a fight and didn’t follow through on my word.

“Word is bond” is the term we used back in the day growing up in the“Ville”.

If I said I was going to prepare to fight someone on a specific date at a specific weight, I made sure I did everything in my power to keep the integrity of my agreement.

Whether my opponent came in overweight the night of weigh ins, or I showed up on fight night sick as a dog, or I broke my toes during training camp, I came to fight from bell to bell.

NEVER backed out of a fight.

I didn’t know any other way to carry myself as a warrior or martial artist.

This is the code of ethics #6:

Complete Sincerity 

I never wanted my name to be associated with someone who didn’t do what they said they would do.

I couldn’t bear to think that the decision I made would not be fulfilled.

“All it takes is heart” is another saying that I eat, sleep and breath, to keep my ego in check.

As I say, “ we all need a little ego, but we can’t let it dictate our lives”. When we let our ego get out of control, uncontrollable things start to happen and then we tend to blame the outside world.

With my ego in check, 2017 has been a GREAT year of transition for me and I have given all my heart to this new chapter in my life, as with all the podcasts that I’ve been blessed to be a part of.

As of just yesterday, a new interview was just released by a very well known podcaster, by the name of Ryan Michler of Order of Man.
In the interview I discuss:

  • The fight that changed everything for me
  • How to find your rythym and flow in life
  • Why timing is critical
  • The importance of settling into life
  • The difference between complacency and getting comfortable
  • How to find the fight in us

Give it a listen HERE


This one is NO different in the fact that I gave the truest expression of myself in hopes to inspire, motivate and educate anyone in Ryan’s community to accept the challenge of life, and fight to win.

With complete sincerity I declare to hunt down my ambitions, visionsand dreams.

I will stay on this mission until the very end…the mission is to buildchampions of life, so that people can stand up after they fall and become leaders of their own uprising of the mind.

Champ Up!
