ASPIRE LIGHT HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION
R: Good evening Mikael. It's been a short time since your last bout, a Majority Draw against James Adams. How do you feel about how the fight went?
MB: I could and should have done better I feel. We kept training right down to the wire, and we misjudged our recovery time so I wasn't 100% in there, but that takes nothing away from Adams. I hit him with some hard and clean shots, but he kept going even when I thought I would have ended him in the first round.
R: Prior to the bout, you did say you felt he might look to take it to the ground and he did so. While he didn't dominate in that area, he certainly caused some worry. Do you feel the takedowns disrupted your flow in the fight?
MB: It definitely worked to his advantage, and scored well for him on the scorecards to get the takedowns. I don't feel I was in trouble at any time but it definitely took me away from my gameplan. Luckily I managed to secure myself down there thanks to the training of the guys at my gym.
R: A third match has been scheduled between you two on August 20th in Wombley Arena once more. With this being the third fight, management of the org have said the loser won't receive another title shot either for a while, or until a different champion emerges. Does this motivate you even more going into the bout?
MB: Definitely. I'm 100% motivated for every fight I go into, sometimes too much like you saw last time hah. But the fact that the title is out of arms reach if I do lose just means I will be keeping a hold on it with an iron grip. Adams is a tough guy, and we've seen that he is on my level. It just comes down to who puts their gameplan into practice better on the night.
R: Your teammate Red Brophy is also competing on the same card, with his last fight also coming on the same card as you. He fights Dmitri Zaitsev in a fight that many feel he isn't ready for when you look at the statistics. How do you feel about his chances?
MB: I know our management were discussing possible fights with Aspire on the Heavyweight division. A few names came up. They said that Zaitsev was a guy who nobody would fight for one reason or another so he was marooned in terms of possible fights. Apparently Red didn't let them say another word before accepting a fight against him. He's a crazy guy for sure, but I wouldn't count him out of any fight. He has the power to knock almost anyone out, so I fancy his chances. We'll be sparring with each other and pushing each other to the limit in preparation for that card though.
R: Thank you Mikael, and best of luck to you and Red on your upcoming fights.

Just a little thing I made today to promote James "Grizzly" Adams ahead of this epic third encounter with Aspire 205lbs champion "The Forsaken" Mikael Brophy at Aspire 68, I made a few mistakes I must admit, my first ever video production, it's something I would like to expand upon for other big cards in the future, just bear (lol) with me while I get the hang of this, lots of new skills to learn I hope someone likes it!

lol that's pretty funny!, thanks for the kind words Jamie, I used the free Lightworks program to try my hand at this, Tom & Rei suggested I look at Adobe or Sony Vegas so hopefully it won't be the last!
