Andy is the young age of 48 and has been involved in Muay Thai for about 15-20 years, having fought Western boxing and kickboxing in my younger years.
“I’ve spent about 3 1/2 years in Thailand, much of it at the now famous Tiger Muay Thai in Phuket, having been the fourth customer and returning several times for extended stays.
I’ve also spent time in Northern Thailand, representing SKP Muay Thai, a small, emerging gym outside Chiangmai with trainers from the legendary Pinsinchai stable.
I fought numerous times in SE Asia, with a mix of local and Western opponents, collecting about 25 stitches in my face and a dozen wins, along with some painful losses.
I started padholding for a mate who wanted to fight and have now hold for a number of aspiring fighters as well as helping a few high level fighters prepare for shows.”
