MTA: You have a fight against Gabe David on September 29th at Triumphant 1. How has training been going for the fight?

Ethan: Training for this fight has been great. I’ve had a good amount of time and feel like I am ready to go out and perform on September 29th.

MTA: How familiar are you with Gabe as a fighter?

Ethan: I know that Gabe comes from a good team at Combat Fitness out of Concord. I have seen him fight a couple times and I know that he is a southpaw.

MTA: What would you say is your biggest advantage entering the fight?

Ethan: I can’t really say I have a big advantage but I can say that coming into this fight, I am confident in my preparation and training.

MTA: What gym do you represent?

Ethan: I train out of El Niño Training Center in San Francisco, California and represent Wooden Man Muay Thai.

MTA: When did you start training and why?

Ethan: I started training in late 2010. I was looking to lose some weight at the time and I wanted to get into mixed martial arts. I came across Fairtex in Newark when they first opened up and fell in love with Muay Thai from there.

MTA: Are you still going to be fighting MMA?

Ethan: I don’t think I will get into MMA, at the moment I want to focus on my Muay Thai career. But you never know!

MTA: What would you say is the hardest part of training camp for a fight?

Ethan: I think the hardest part of training camp is balancing work, training and and your personal life.

MTA: Being that you have seen Gabe fight a couple of times, does it help preparing for the fight being that you have seen him in action?

Ethan: It does and it doesn’t because it’s nice to see him in action although it doesn’t matter because it’s not me in front of him.

MTA: Favorite Muay Thai fighter and why?

Ethan: That’s a hard one. I have more than one favorite Muay Thai fighter, but if I have to choose one I say Jongsanan Fairtex because of his forward and aggressive style.

MTA: How would you describe your style to someone that hasn’t seen you fight?

Ethan: I fight a more technical style and like to mix up my kicks, footjab and elbows.

MTA: You are both part of the Northern California Muay Thai scene. Is there any extra motivation because of this?

Ethan: No there is no extra motivation for me. I feel I always train with a high level of motivation no matter who I’m fighting.

MTA: Any words for your supporters?

Ethan: I want to say thank you to my trainers, teammates and family as well as my sponsors who help me during this training camp.
