Short-notice fights on a large-scale stage in front of a cheering crowd can be seen as a blessing in disguise if lessons are learned and applied on a bout-by-bout basis in terms of where the fighter wants to be as their career changes. In today’s episode of Across The Pond, you will meet a steady train looking for the next upgrade as his journey down the tracks gains a head of sizeable steam and momentum.
