Am I Crazy?



So, I'm fighting again, in less than 3 weeks, at age 37, after being out of the ring for 4 years. It's a full Muay Thai rules event at The Las Vegas Hilton on January 12th. What does "full Muay Thai rules" mean? It means elbows, knees, leg kicks, head kicks, body kicks, and every possible combination of punches that can be thrown. Why would I put myself through this again? Because I'm a fighter. That's what I do. And this may just be the last year my body will allow itself to be tortured into fighting shape and put through its paces for five hard rounds. So, if you've been sending me emails or calling my house or writing me letters and have been wondering why it seems to be taking me so long to respond, if you've been wondering why I haven't been haunting the usual messageboards or why I haven't written anything new lately, it's because I've been in the gym preparing for war. Wish me luck guys. Win, lose, or draw, I'm going out with all guns blazin' and I'm going to have fun. I'm not sure if I'll fight again after this. I'll have to see how it goes. Not sure if I have the patience to fight my way back up into title contention. But who knows. All I know is that in about two and a half weeks sweat and blood is going to fly and I'll be having the time of my life.
