It's not a race... but it's always a fight and in this case I'm fighting to fight.
Today I got word that my May 13th fight is a no-go. I agreed to fight the W.I.B.A (Women's International Boxing Association) fourth ranked minimum weight female fighter as an underdog for an insulting paycheck that would basically just pay for my training and all the medical and legalities to get my Korean pro license switched to a Filipino one but I was okay with that. It wasn't about the money for me. •
This marks the second fighter to cancel a fight with me here in the Philippines and it's so completely frustrating. I love this country but what's a fighter if they're not willing to fight?!
The fight was my much-needed goal. After all, why would I be killing myself at training day after day and jeopardizing the growth of my business if I didn't have something big like this. I'm not interested in losing weight and I really don't have the extra cash to even pay for all this pre-fight training. I switched boxing clubs, switched coaches, took up walking about 55kms a week so that I could better prepare for this fight and agreed to dropping 17lbs. Now it's been called off. Not cool. •
Here's to hoping they'll find me an opponent and put us on the May 22nd fight card.
