They say a true winner or champion will overcome the odds and adapt to any given situation to take that win. Obviously being a 40-44 age grouper I often question my age when competing and my ability to do so, im certainly not as young as i used to be!
This Saturday my good friend and fellow HRABC coach & committee member #specialk Kay Prosper was fighting in his 9th Professioanl contest and on the David Haye undercard at the o2 no less. Obviously Kay took the win but it was his situation that made him all the more inspirational than ever. Kay really is the home grown champion in every sense of the word and is an endless inspiration to EVERYONE at www.hrabc.co.uk
Kay was messed about with timings, no doubt due to the logistics and scale of the show at one stage not knowing if he was fighting at all and then being shifted around in time. to quote kay himself:
Adapt and overcome! Challenges are sent to test us, but we prevail!
I really couldn't have put it better myself. This show was particularly poignant as also fighting on the show was Shannon the Cannon Briggs who at 44 says "I'm in the shape of my life, lets go champ".....
Adapt and overcome! Challenges are sent to test us, but we prevail.!#striving4glory
