Mat Ropi shows potential

FINAL SUPER 4 (Title belt and Piala Exco Pelancongan)
(KO 2nd round)-exerped from Boxxtomoi

Mat Ropi was knocked out in the second round, through a knee to his stomach. But according to his coaches he shows a lot of potential. He has only been training with the Malaysian Tigers for 5 days and after watching his performance tonight we are sure he will go far.

When we scout for fighters, we aren't necessarily looking for athletes who are at their peak now. We are looking for athletes who show the most potential to improve and develop. From there, will provide them with the best coaches and training conditions.

Stephan Fox-visits our WMC Gym in Kelana Jaya

We were honoured last Friday as Mr Stephan Fox, vice President of the WMC and Secretary General of IFMA, paid our WMC Malaysia Gym a visit. Mr.Fox, along with Hanarong, trainer of Contender Asia fame, put our Malaysian Tigers through a tough training session.As usual Mr.Fox impressed us all with his high energy levels and charisma!

For some of our 'Tiger Cubs' this was their first time to be acquainted with Mr.Fox.

"Is that all you've got?". "Kick faster............... my mother kicks harder than that!

An after class prep talk by Mr. Fox. "You all show great potential and I'm sure Malaysia will someday(hopefully soon) produce a World Champion. But you must train very hard! We can get you the world's best coaches, we can help you but you must also help yourself......!-Well he said something along these lines :)

More on Ali vs Flip

This article is taken from the WMC website-
The main event was Mohd Ali B Yaakub, the Malaysian Champion versus Flip Street for the ASIAN Pacific Title. Yaakub took the fight on short notice and put on a great performance. He stepped up a division demonstrating that Malaysia is really developing as one of the world powerhouses for fighters. However, it was Flip (under traiing of world famous, John Wayne Parr) that made Australia proud that evening by taking a point decision and keeping the Asian Pacific Title belt for Australia.

It was a great performance by Yaakub from Malaysia who will be taking on Australian champion, Chris White in his division next. Flip will be defending his title against the next Asian Challenger.

Congratulations to Strike Force. Keep watching Fox Sport and the WMC Network!
