Timing is everything and for FightCard’s latest Heavyweight addition, Tom Davis waited over a decade to get his timing just right. “I haven’t competed in 11 years but I have over 80 amateur Muay Thai fights. I am a 2nd Dan in Tae-Kwon-Do and Hapkido from Kukkiwon. I think fighting is a great demonstration of acquired skills that are useful not only as a sport but in a practical sense in life.” Davis is not only training for his return fight making his FightCard debut but also the head coach for C-Fit Knockout Team, currently training his own fighters who are also competing on the same event next weekend. “It is difficult sometimes working full time and still having to train my fighters & myself but I do my best.”
Davis will be facing Kiran Malempati, who is coming off a loss but has been training hard to get back on track. Both fighters have something to prove in this upcoming match up in showing that they belong here. “I’m taking this fight with FightCard very serious. If I lose, it’s legitimately because the other guy was better. I watched (Malempati) previous MMA fight several times. He looks inexperienced but I’m not underestimating him. I hope I win and if I do, I see it ending with a TKO or a KO win.”
