I had grown up with Mike Tyson’s videos, and in my country was impressed by him.

Usually, I start my training camp 6-8 weeks before a fight, during the camp we separate the training into conditional training & technical training.

Myself and my team start to study the opponent and after we work on the bases of that, after the fight we understand the mistakes and also try to not make them again in the future
