Well my first pro fight and it was UGLY but I got the job done.  At over 40 years old to go through what I did, I can truly say I am extremtly proud of myself (I think I’m gonna cry – lol)

 This guy had about twenty fights and me, just zero. Although he pretty big, he had some power.  It was an awesome experience, especially because Angela and I were on the same card and we were the Co-Main Event.  After the fight we were overwhelmed by Thai’s and  Farangs (foreigners) to take pictures, congratulate us and just hang out.  It was honestly like being mobbed by the Paparzzi.  Great experience!

Stay tuned for my Fight analysis so you can get an inside look at what I was thinking as the fight was going on.  My next fight will definitely be different, more relaxed, that’s for sure.

Thanks to everyone for all your help!

Any how enought talk and more fight!!!!!!!!!!!

    Awesome 2nd round mate – 1min44secs classic slow motion punch.
    Bet the ref felt that as well.
    Well Done Funk.

    Once again my friend Marc has demonstrated what it takes to be a winner. It takes a great deal of discipline, determination and courage to accomplish what you set out to do only a few months ago. You are an inspiration to us all!

    Very proud of you Marcus!

    Excellent job on your fight! You came out gunnin for him in the 2nd, after you hit him with a solid hook and that barrage of hooks (nd possibly elbows) it was pretty much yours for the taking. The KO was icing on the cake, and proper way to finish! Congrats!!

    Good luck for future fights!

    You did better than you give yourself credit for. Even though in your head you “fell apart,” in reality you held it together pretty well – especially given this was your first fight. And, hey, you go the “W.”

    One other comment: I discovered your Website two days ago and absolutely LOVE it! One of the things that has drawn me to it most, besides the excellent information, techniques, workouts, etc., is you. You are an intelligent and very likeable guy. Watching your post-fight analysis video above, I found myself laughing and really enjoying watching – almost like you and I were just hangin’ and talking.

    Anyway, nice job on the fight and nice work on the site.

    I have to say that was not ugly for a first fight, just the turning around during the fight. But after watching most of your tough training, you did really well. Keep it up! Nice boxing form there sir, also thanks for the knowledgeable vids and work out tips Dr Funk. I seen your Mir weight vest vid over a year ago and did not know you had so many others on youtube.
