SEAN REFLECTS ON RECENT K.O. VICTORY

What’s up! Sean Fagan here, and ho-lee-shit, guys! I GOT THE KNOCKOUT!!!

It’s been a brutal, grueling month at Thailand Training Camp. Not only was I co-hosting a training camp with Paul “Reaper” Banasiak at Diamond Muay Thai, but I was preparing myself for a fight at the same time. And wouldn’t ya know it, I got fuckin’ sick a week out! Training while sick is one of the worst things in life, so you can imagine my confidence going into this fight was pretty shot.

My opponent was a legit nak muay, a guy who was ranked in the top ten at Lumpinee just a few years back. This wasn’t gonna be a walk in the park. I really needed that first round to feel him out, but also get my wits about me and shake off all that nasty, negative mojo that I had to shoulder going into this one. We exchanged good strikes back and forth. I was focusing on my boxing and low kicks, while he kept landing this powerful left switch kick to my head and knee to my body.

In the third round, I felt him change his approach and start marching forward looking to clinch – not exactly my favorite place to be. So you know what I did? I smacked him off the dome with an up elbow, cutting him. Still, he was controlling the fight tempo and I was getting tired. Going into the fourth, I knew I had to do something drastic. I smothered him with my jab, which landed frequently, and set up other strikes to damage him. At some point, I noticed him slowing down – which was a big, bright “green light” to me. All systems go! I smashed him with an up kick to the face, then some punches and then…

BOOM!!! A crisp uppercut that landed flush on his chin. He crumpled to the floor like an empty plastic bag.

To be honest, I’m not entirely happy with my performance and I felt like I was down on points for most of the fight due to his relentless clinch attack. I also felt like I took too much damage; my ribs from his stabbing knees, my right arm from his precise head kick attempts and the side of my head from a well placed elbow.

I am proud to come away with the KO win, but this was definitely a learning experience that opened my eyes to some holes in my game. Now it’s time to rest the body for a day or two and then get right back into training to prepare for the next one! Thanks again to all my supporters & everyone who came out to cheer for me on Facebook Live. See y’all next time!
