Ok, full discretion... I've just nicked this video out of my upcoming Cardio Conditioning Program module. But I've been so busy filming, editing and putting the new program together in my brand new online coaching portal this last month, that I've not had time to prepare anything else!

Something big happened at Yokkao 28 at the Macron Stadium in Bolton. Daniel McGowan took down a top-level Thai, Rungarai Kiatmoo9 in spectacular fashion. And this wasn't a lucky shot from an otherwise losing contender, but the finale to a commanding performance that saw one of Thailand's finest fighters KO'd from a left hook in [...]
