Default Gill(UK) vs Morello(USA) IKF WORLD TITLE in England Feb'09

Thought we should start a new thread about this fight, I am honored to represent the U.S.A and once again go in someones elses backyard, country and fight for the IKF's Pro World Title!!!! Dang I can't wait for this war to happen, this is gonna be one tough friggin battle not only for myself but for anyone that has to Walk the walk with Mr.Gill, he is very highly talked about on the UK message board when ever his name is brought up, he is known as "The Golden Boy of Kickboxing" in the UK. I know nothing about him at all ( wish we had some video or tape to see what kind or type of fighter we're up against but o'well no biggie, we'll just have to make the adjustments after the first couple bombs thrown like we did with Mr.George Pattison last May in the UK, we totally change the game plan after weigh-ins he was much much taller than we expected (I believe he is 6'2 or 6'3, I'm 5'9 1/2. Like I said on the UK message board if we would have stuck with the original game plan and fight the way I normally fight he probly would have dominated me from the outside all night long so we gambled and fought a whole entire different style that night. I wish there was some kind of live stream for everyone to watch the fight live on their computers or something that would be super cool like they did with the IKF Jamaica event that happened a couple months ago!!!!! Knowing everyone back in the USA was watching and hoping we bring that belt back the U.S.A . This will be the biggest challenge, fight of my career so time to get some rest and we'll keep everyone updated the next couple weeks count down has begun. Also a big Thanks and high five to EVERYONE that has supported me.

Mike. Start the New Year off with a World Championship. That will be awesome. To beat a challenger in his own backyard is the best. Keep us informed......

Hi Mike, nice to see you pushing the fight for us, thanks.

Its going to be a great fight I am sure, Nick is an exciting fighter and as u say well thought of over this side of the water. Having seen u clearly dominate and beat George (which no one had ever done before) I know your up for the challenge.

Hope all is well and look forward to seeing u in Feb

happy new year to you and your family and in fact to everyone that we have worked with since coming on board with the IKF. We have had a great year, met some great people down in Orlando in July and look forward to working with u all again.

Regards from all here in the UK

The New Years Eve celebrating has come and gone and once again we'll be looking to keep this IKF World Title here in the state. The countdown has begun more dramaticlly for me mentally !!!
I'm so siked for this fight right now I have no predictions on the fight itself but I believe all the pressure is on Mr.Gill, and we'll do our best to keep all the pressure on him phisically in the ring come Feb 22cnd. I want to Thank Mr.Colin Payne again for this opportunity to work for him at the Casino Rooms in England. Also want to Thank Mr.Fossum and the IKF for the opportunity to fight against the best, and for for the BEST WORLD Title in the World the IKF!!! We'll check back in a bit folks.
