Interview with Alex Kelly above
Alex Kelly walked into The Institute Muay-Thai Gym a few years ago with the notion to compete. She had no idea it would take as much time and dedication as it did, but she loved it and has made it a huge part of her life. Kelly has gone on to become a certified personal trainer and teaches multiple classes for her head coach, Mike Burke, who is a very well respected instructor and leader. This past weekend, she and some of her teammates made the trip to Delaware to go to battle in the USKA Nationals and Kelly walked away with a national championship to start building her resume as an amateur competitor. Next up for Kelly is a title opportunity on September 25th for USKA Fight Sports.
We caught up with Kelly to find ask her about her results at the WKA Nationals, her recently announced matchup on the 25th and how combat sports has become such a huge part of her life. She says about her upcoming USKA title bout…
“I have seen Sonia Reyes fight before and she is very good with a lot of cardio which I also feel is one of my strengths. Then to find out it was for a championship after the fact was a great surprise. We are very excited about this event because it is for charity to help veterans and first responders which is very important to me.”

Kelly vs Reyes should be a hell of a fight on September 25th. Reyes trains out of Tiger Schulman’s and is undefeated.

The story of the fighter is what Bob loves about the sport. From the lowest level, to the highest, he only cares about the two warriors who do battle once the cage doors close. Everything else is secondary. Without their blood, sweat, and tears, he would not be here enjoying every minute.
