How did you get into Muaythai? and where did you start?

What is your fight record so far?
How would you best describe your fighting style?
Casey: Well rounded and I like to push forward.
How is your preparation going for the EFN Champions League 4 man on the 12th?

Is this your first ever 4 man one-day tournament and have you prepared any differently for it than a regular 5 round fight?
Casey: Yes, first tournament of this kind for me. I use the same basic training model for 5 round fights, but with some extra running.
What fighter do you look up to the most in the sport and aspire to be like?
Casey: I tend to watch fighters that have similar builds and attributes to myself, but I don’t try to be like anybody but myself.

Casey: To continue to challenge myself and fight to my full potential.
What can the fans expect from you on the 12th of August?
