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.

Conquering the Start of the New Week

Look at what just arrived... the new Conquer hand wraps from Slay, by Empowered.  I love them!
I figured it only fitting that I get to have the first pair and break them in during sparring.
Broke them in on Coach Marcelo, literally.... love it.
Going in for a dirty move... can you tell what I'm going to do next?!
Yup, went with a straight while still holding his left.  I'm a dirty fighter like that.  Old habits.
He knew I was going to go for one last shot, after the bell when we were out of the ring and posing for the camera.  To not expect it would mean he doesn't know me at all and clearly he does.
