Post Fight Thoughts – My Retirment Fight

Roxy Balboa vs Elaina Maxwell - Staredown

The week after a fight is always interesting. A bit sore and bruised on the outside and a sort of calmness inside that can only come from accomplishing something difficult that you worked hard for.

If you missed the action you can read the recap here.

Elaina as I expected was a tough girl, but I trained hard and under the good direction of Kru Mark Komuro and Joe Schilling at The Yard and I was prepared for a battle. A big thank you to my trainers for believing in me and helping me believe in myself. You guys rock!

I also owe a big thanks to Revgear and Esaan  – A Taste of Thai for their support for this fight.  Thanks for supporting Muay Thai! 🙂

Thank you to all my friends, the F5 family, fans and of course my awesome boyfriend Dustin. He is my rock, I couldn’t do this without him. Continue reading…

I won my fight Sunday against Sheree Halliday (UK) in an all out war for 5 rounds. Much respect to Sheree for flying to LA to bang it out in the ring. She proved to be a fierce competitor and I was excited we put on such a great show for the fans.

Although as always there are things I want to improve upon, I know I left it all in the ring that night. Sheree had good push kicks and a couple of nice elbows (i have a sweet battle wound of four stitches over my left eye), but I was able to push the pace constantly and keep her moving backward into the ropes the whole fight with my strikes and aggression. I landed many punches that knocked her head back. Two out of three judges felt I scored the most damage and controlled the fight (Official judges scores: 48/47 and 49/46 Richardson, 48-47 Halliday), so I won by split decision. Who knows, maybe we’ll have a rematch sometime in the future 🙂 Continue reading…
