As the story has it, one day I headed to the opposite side of the globe – the Flipside. I arrived in Korea on February 16th, 2005 and thought I’d do a year, then leave. I went from being some random foreign girl to taking on labels I never imagined – university professor, film extra, professional boxer, reality TV star, CEO of my own girls-only fitness company (Flipside Fitness), CEO of my own boxing club (Hulk's Club, formerly known as Hulk's Boxing), and now I'm launching my 3rd business -- Empowered Clubhouse.

After 11.5yrs in Korea, I then picked up one day and returned to Toronto, Canada. But then I left again. This time it was for the Philippines. That's where I am now, living in the land of the happy people. The struggles are real and the struggles are many but I'm living life on my terms, I'm calling the shots, and I'm doing what I love. Life is an amazing adventure and this is my story of yesterday.

Three Weeks Today... Tuesday, May 1

No word yet from the matchmaker and this is killing me.  I just want to know.

There's a lot of background and admin stuff that has to take place on my end once I know the fight is a go so the sooner I know, the better it is for me.  

Background work I have for this fight...

  • obviously continue with the intense training
  • increase in road work
  • continue to cut weight
  • arranging for a possible new sparring partner
  • meeting with possible sponsors
  • licensing meeting with G.A.B. once the fight card is officially submitted
  • get the hardcopies of the signed letter and Korean license from the Korean commissioner
  • when the fight card is submitted, I have to set up various medical check appointments for my Filipino boxing license
  • submitted all my medical check results
  • decide on purse split
  • arrange to have my fight shorts made
  • inform others about the Fight Day details -- date, place, time, tickets, etc.
  • figure out Fight Day hair style and appointment
  • rearrange my coaching schedule for Empowered (group class and PT sessions)
  • ...and I'm sure there's other stuff too!
When you consider this time possibly in three weeks I have to do all the above plus whatever else comes up, it doesn't make for an easy road to Fight Day with all these distractions.  It'll be a very busy and a very tight timeline to get all this stuff done.
