Charles: I started training Muay Thai at the beginning of 2012 because Muay Thai is the coolest thing I’d ever seen. I watched 2 of my heroes, Steve Swaby Clacken and Ed Abosolo fight in Oakland a few months before. It was amazing to see 2 fellow Vallejo guys like myself follow their dreams and become warriors.

MTA: For fight fans that have not seen you before, can you describe your style?

Charles: Relentless. I push a grueling pace and throw shots that even the people in the back are going to here. People are gonna see none stop action when I step into that ring.

MTA: You are going to be the hometown favorite in this fight. How much of an advantage do you think it is to have the crowd on your side?

MTA: Is there anything about your opponent you know you need to keep an eye out for?

Charles: I know his team has eagle eyes and are disciplined. I know I gotta come legit at these guys.

MTA: Prediction for the fight?

Charles: This fights gonna be too crazy too predict. I can predict that it’ll be a great show and people will be on their feet.

MTA: Any words for your supporters?

Charles: Thank you all so much! I’m training hard everyday to make sure you all get to enjoy an amazing display of Muay Thai madness. Get ready to party!
