We spoke to Graham Southall who trains out of Hanuman Thai Boxing and is making his debut this Sunday;


How is preparation going for your fight? 

‘Preparation has gone really well. This being my first fight, I’ve tried to learn as much as I can from the more experienced guys in the gym and my coaches to make sure I’m ready.’


Do you know anything about your opponent?

‘My original opponent pulled out with a week to go until the fight, but thankfully my coaches have managed to find a replacement as I’d have been gutted to miss out. All I know is that the guy is coming over from Spain and has had a few fights, but it doesn’t really change anything for me as I’ve been more focused on my own preparation.’


What would you say is your strongest asset as a kickboxer?

‘Well, I think I’d be able to answer that better Sunday! I hope the skills/techniques/combinations I’ve been working on in training and sparring can be translated well to the actual fight. I’m sparring with some great fighters at my gym (Hanuman) on a weekly basis, which gives me confidence going into it.


If you win, how do you plan on celebrating?

‘A lot of my friends found it hard to believe that I could last as long as I have done without touching a drink, and to be honest, I’ve surprised myself a bit! I’ve taken a few days off work after, so I’ll be making up for some lost time win or lose!’
