To say that I was looking forward to this fight would have been a huge understatement. I think the fact that he was on this card was 60% of the reason I decided to go.
I lucked out and was able to score a press pass, so I made my way back to the fighter’s area. I’m a bit torn about doing interviews prior to the fight. Clearly there is a time and place to get your questions in… Maybe when they’ve just arrived or when their getting their hands wrapped.
I was able to have a quick chat with Yod and Anuwat, but Bovy… he’s a little difficult to gauge. He seemed “more” relaxed when he was getting taped up, and I should have jumped on the chance.
The second time I came back in he had already been rubbed down and had his game face on. I watched as he paced menacingly back and forth, throwing punches and elbows intermittently. I’ve been around a lot of Thai nak muays during their warm up, but I’ve never seen a Thai nak muay who was so agro.
As I mentioned in the previous post, it felt like he could have snapped on anyone on the room…
Cut to the fight…
Did not expect that at all… I wouldn’t have called that in a million years. I was sitting between the mixfight.nl and yougoodfight.be guys and we just there completely slack jawed.
I would love to see a rematch… I know he’s coming to the UK in a couple of months. I’ll definitely try to get the interview then. Just hope he doesn’t smash me for bringing up this fight. Actually might make for some interested footage. I can see going viral, “blogger get’s smashed for asking stupid question”
