Tale of the Tape: Kevin Ross

Kevin “The Soul Assassin” Ross is an artist and a pioneer in American Muay Thai. Throughout his career, he has won the super-lightweight WBC International title, the welterweight WBC USA National title, the FIDAM welterweight title of Mexico, and the United States Muay Thai Federation welterweight title. He is also the current Bellator Kickboxing featherweight champion.


I am truly honored to have Kevin on this episode of The Eight Count. “The Soul Assassin” unlaces the boxing gloves and touches on a lot of subjects that interest me right now, particularly mindset strategies.

If you’ve been pushing aside the life you want because of fear, Kevin’s “eight count” will make you think twice about giving up, no matter where you are in life.
