Stay Fly Muay Thai, Philadelphia's Justin "The Purple People Eater" Greskiewicz,
Last Friday, May 16th, I was slotted as the main event on the Friday Night Fights event in NYC. I squared up against one of the top welterweights in the country, Jose Palacios. It was a fight that I have been looking forward to for quite some time. Jose is a top level fighter and one of the few guys on the short list of fighters that I'm really excited to fight.
We both made weight at 147 and the fight was a go!
As we started the fight, Jose began to land some good punches and combinations, as I expected. I saw an opportunity to counter with an elbow, and I found a hole. I cut Jose with a perfectly placed elbow above his right eye and the doctor called a stop to the fight 1:23 into the first round. It was a short fight, and I was proud of myself for my efficiency and my effective countering.
Hats off to Jose for a job well done. He's a gentleman and a true competitor. I was honored to spend a couple minutes in the ring with him.
