Brad has trained at Tiger several times in the past before joining the fight team. When asked about what he likes about being at TMT…
” Tiger allows me to fully focus on the fights ahead with no other distractions or stress such as work and worrying about bills at home. I can also create my own training schedule and get the required rest. For my upcoming tournaments, I hope to work towards learning and developing more as a young fighter.”
Brad also aspires to compete in for the Glory World Series kickboxing tournament. He lists one of his big inspirations as John Wayne Parr because of his commitment, never give up attitude and giving everything back to the sport. Brad fought John Wayne Parr last year in a great fight that many people want to see a rematch of. Brad is also a big fan of Muay Thai superstar Buakaw.
