My coach ended up throwing in the towel.
Soo much went wrong before the fight but oh well these things happen and its all a learning curve. I dont want to take anything away from Commey as I believe he put up a great performance. I wish him all the best and I'm sure we'll meet again for a part 2 sometime in the near future under better conditions.
Being here in Ghana fighting MMA means the world to me and it is a dream come true. Although we didn't get the result we wanted, It's been a truly amazing experience. I couldn't thank the Ghanaian people enough for the way they have welcomed and received me.
I look forward to doing it again sometime in the future
His Trainer, Alan Philpott said:
We are not gonna make excuses for the result, but when the locals are saying it's very warm, then you can only imagine how we felt. Having to stop Tjs fight was very hard but seeing how exhausted he was i had no option. His oxygen levels dropped fast and he had to be taking to hospital by an ambulance. A few things went against us and if we get to the chance to come back there will definitely be some major changes. Well done to Isaac he put up a great fight. Now he's open for a rematch in the UK lets try and get it sorted. What you say Carl Prince.
There is a massive hole here in Africa for MMA. If we work together we can really push it forward and make it big here. The fans and supporters are amazing. The fighters are hungry and wanna learn. I look forward to coming back and sharing my knowledge.
Thank you to promoter Jeff Taylor and his team for this opportunity for TJ. This has been a special week.
Shout out to our boxing coach Brian Lightbody for coming along and helping out with the week. We are blessed to have such a strong bonding team.
