Paul Daley On Training Thai Boxing In Holland
Paul Daley On Training Thai Boxing In Holland | Steve Rattlesnake MMA
You historically split your training camp between the UK & Mikes Gym in Holland, how did that relationship begin?
Well, back in the early cage rage days, I fought Joey van Wanrooij who was from Mikes Gym at the time. He put up such a good fight, we became friends at the after party and stayed in touch. I then started following a lot of Melvinís [Manhoef] fights and we became friends.
Mike wrapped my hands for a fight at the old Cage Rage and we became good mates from then, we stayed good friends and I asked if I could come over to Holland and he was like no problem. They looked after me really well, didnít charge me, and fed me, so for that past 3 or 4 years Iíve been going over there.
Whatís it like training in Holland compared to the UK?
In Holland youíre in the bottom of the food chain, there level of Thai boxing is so high, they do it in day in day out, every single day; the levels are so high, you are literally fighting to stay alive when you train over there [laughs], itís really good.
