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.

I Want to Fight Too... Sunday, July 15

With well over a hundred people flooding the Howzat Sports Bar under Team Insider Boxing Club, I watched as Pacquiao took on and took down his opponent, Matthysse.  Seventh round TKO.

Watching a Pac fight in the Philippines, pretty damn awesome. 

Today was the second time I watched a Pac fight in the Philippines.  The first being his loss to Horn, or his "robbed win" as many of us believe.

Lots of big fights this weekend actually.

In Korea, Choi Hyun Mi was defending her title belt as was Park Ji Hyun, and in Canada Dilion Carman was scheduled to fight and so was my friend ...... Of my four friends fighting, three of them won their fights and one, Dilion's fight, was cancelled because of their opponent.

While watching Pac's fight out in Poblacion with my boxing buddies, I got word that one of the guys there has yet another fight.  This marks his third fight in about three and a half months so don't even ask me about whether or not I'm frustrated with not having a fight.  I've started to call out promoters and message them individually on Facebook and via text messaging on their phones.

It seems like everyone is having a fight and here I am fighting to get a fight.

Damn.
