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.

Another Promise Made... Friday, April 5

With nothing evolving more than lots of talk and unmatched promises, I've decided to give someone else the responsibility of getting me a fight here in the Philippines.  I told him I'd work with him if he got me a fight, that's the deal that went down today.  Over sweaty hand wraps and soaked through training clothes, we shock on it.

And on that note, I start working with him on Monday, another coach.

The plan is to fight June.  June at 108lbs.

Let's see if he's a man of his word or just another talker.
