Watching fighters prepare for battle is a visceral vantage point to witness, first hand. The sense of an incurable itch they feel until it’s time. The nerves they endure at a second’s notice, every day. The stress and anxiety ultimately boil down to a matter of moments in the ring. Win, lose, or draw, it’s an addiction.
Inside the ring, you’ll see dreams made and shattered. Lifetime accomplishments and goals are fulfilled in front of your eyes, while someone else’s has been crushed. The fight business is more than just a business. It’s an emotional rollercoaster of uncertainties met with endless work to have a chance to showcase your skillset.
Amidst the worldwide pandemic of Covid-19, the hungriest of fighters still has to eat. Time waits for no man, as they say. Thus, fighters are taking chances at every turn to step into their sacred ground of combat, be it a ring, cage, or mats. “When there are fights, you gotta take them,” Rami Elite junior fighter and multiple-time Muay Thai champion, Max Rosario says.
“The best way to get better as a fighter is to fight. I have dedicated students that are hungry. And the best way to keep them with that energy is to give them a chance to eat,” says world-renowned Muay Thai legend and owner of Rami Elite, Rami “The Son of Palestine” Ibrahim.
Hence, why Ibrahim sought out Muay Thai shows across the globe for a chance for his fighters to “eat”.
When he touched base with a friend, Ruben Cruz, promoter of LBTM Muay Thai in Mexico, he was pleased to find out there were multiple slots for his hungry athletes to display their world-class skill.
From a rough start to the journey at the airport, to holiday festivities in a foreign country, all the way to the fighters performing to their potential, it was a very successful trip for the Philadelphian Muay Thai powerhouse, Rami Elite.
Tune in above as MyMMANews catches up with Rami Ibrahim and his team of fighters who competed in Hidalgo, Mexico at “Copa Maya Internacional 2020,” Ahmad Ibrahim, Max Rosario, and newly crowned 105lb LBTM female Muay Thai champion, Mary Brulatour.
