There has to be some video out there of this guy fighting...
GT: All the time you were competing in the martial arts as your career progressed. Tell us about your earlier competitions.
AR: Well when I first started training, looking at Kevin fight in events such as Clash of the Titans, I really thought competing was beyond me. Then four or so years later there I am, with you, and I faced against the guy you were worried about fighting, Nathan Lewis, the Megatron (World Champion Lau Gar squad). I remember thinking, f**k, oh well here we go. Yet I thought with total abandonment for my preservation. Back then I seemed to be wilder (probably the Para thing). Although I lost I was really happy with my performance. I took the fight to him, which I feel frustrated him; he knocked all his other opponents out. It was at this point I began to realise my potential, and really believe in my self. That was a funny night, after I had fought it was your turn - who could the Lau Gar squad bring out after Megatron? Well they found someone pretty scary, Faisal Mohamed (now doing well as a pro boxer). He must have been on gear, because he was massive. Wow that was a fight. On the way home we were both concussed to hell, talking gibberish in the back of the car. I think we both threw up at least a couple of times. Fond memories huh! It was also that night I was down to face Buster Reeves, from the Warriors. This was our first meeting, again not the usual way two now best mates would like to have met! I think I said a nervous hello after having sized him up. I’m glad we didn’t fight, and couldn’t now. Still we have plenty of wars in the gym (oh and by the way, thanks for that split lip a week before I was supposed to fight for the WAKO English Title! Cheers mate, don’t worry, you got yours coming!)
