It’s been a while since I posted something on here. But things have been quite hectic, all good things though.
The last few months were extremely busy.
After my return from my EM Legend fight in China last April, we had a couple of visits.
My mom traveled from Germany to Phuket and we celebrated Songkran (New Year in Thailand) together and had a great couple of weeks exploring the island.
Then my best friend Manuel also came to Thailand from Germany and is still here!
It’s great to have my bro here!
A couple of days after my mom returned back to Germany, the German TV crew named TAFF arrived to Phuket to film a documentary about successful Germans living in Phuket. One of them being me.
I feel very honored for that opportunity. They wanted an insight into my life and to know about my journey as a fighter, leaving home to live the fighters life in the Muay Thai nation, Thailand. Happily, I welcomed them into my life and we had an awesome time filming together. Great team from TAFF!

After the filming, me and my girlfriend travelled to Surin, north-east Thailand, to attend her cousin’s wedding. It was the first time I’ve ever been to a traditional Thai wedding as well as meeting the whole family. Boyfriend meets the family haha! :’D
Actually it was pretty awesome. It was a great experience to get to know all these guys and their traditions. It didn’t take long and I was already a part of the family. I got accepted and respected by all and we had a lot of fun. Drinking beer on the floor and eating spicy food with the family, unbelievable. We had a lot of fun, singing karaoke on a boat while cruising the world famous Mekong River by the borders of Laos. Aldis’s mom also travelled all the way from Iceland to attend the 3-day wedding, so it was this huge family event. Just great! After the wedding we travelled back to Phuket, including her mom. She stayed with us for a week and we had a great time showing her around Phuket.
After our return back from Surin, I was supposed to fight in Top King World Series against the young Thai, superstar Yodwicha, in China. But unfortunately I, amongst other fighters, weren’t able to get a visa, so the fight had to be cancelled. That was a very frustrating situation.
However, in a situation like this, it’s important to stay focused and don’t forget the main goal. So I kept training and stayed fit.
So now I am really excited to announce that I have a fight confirmed again in EM-Legend and again vs. the Thai superstar Yodwicha on the 16th of June, in China. So as of now, although I already feel fight ready! preparation is on full action!
This fight personally means a lot to me since this guy is a really well known fighter in Thailand. Yodwicha belongs in the best ranking fighters of the world and he even won 3 times, the multiple world-champion and Muay Thai legend Saenchai.
I am really looking forward to this fight. But more on that later!
