First of all, THANK YOU for making Legends Fight Night 2 a huge success. We have at least 520 people in attendance and it is a very heartwarming feeling to see people from different walks of life come together to support and shout for the boxers. On behalf of SABA and the Legends Team, THANK YOU for being so amazing!
To all the boxers, win or lose, I salute you. It takes a lot of sacrifice, guts and self believe to train your hardest and then step into the ring against an opponent who is more than ready to take your head off. I hope you enjoyed the experience and are now more motivated to continue boxing, either just for fitness or at another chance to step into the ring again. Now you can be an ambassador of the sport and share stories of your experience in the ring and hopefully, inspire someone else to lace up the gloves. We all need to do our part to make the sport grow. And from the looks of it, it is growing and will continue to.
And here is a quick one to all Legends boxers, I am damn proud of you! The coaching team is very proud of you. We don’t back down from a challenge and we DON’T make excuses for our losses. That is the way we are at Legends. Some of you had to go against more experienced opponents but still stood your ground and fought the best way you know, with lots of skill(before you get tired…heh heh heh), determination and heart. I am more happy and proud of how you carry yourselves in and out of the ring, in training, and after the fight. Some won, some lost, but it don’t matter now. The point is, WE LEARN. All of us….both boxers and trainers. The coaching team (Fai, Ali, Hafiz, Jaron, Jason & myself) will come together and come up with a more intensive training programme and for you boxers, just show up and give you 150%.
