Panicos Yusuf came to England from Cyprus on a one-way ticket, with just £60 in his pocket and a habit of working hard…

He’s since achieved an incredible amount in the sport of Muay Thai, owing everything to his family, his friends, his coaches and training partners.

And he’s grateful to have been noticed by those in the game, and he’s keen to pay it forward to those that are working hard too.

In this episode… Panicos Yusuf, a 2 times Muay Thai World Champion, a fighter and owner of All Powers Gym in Stockport, UK…

Not to mention a One Championship athlete and a Yokkao regular too…

And we speak here ahead of his fight against Chris Shaw at Yokkao 49 (photo slideshow from the event)
