So, those of you who checked out my blog last week may have noticed that I now have a new website (thanks to Matt Lawrence) – I’ll be blogging on here right the way up to my fight in March, so stick with me and I’ll take you through the whole journey. Obviously it’s a special one for me, so I’ll probably be reflecting on my career a little bit, and how I got to where I am now. You might even learn some little known Pickett facts – have I ever told you about the time I trained to be a stunt man?!
I’ve been preparing for my fight for a while now – I’m never really off duty to be honest. Another reason why it will be strange after this fight, my routines are going to change. I’ll still be in the gym all the time of course, but not for the same reasons. I’m currently at home in London, and training daily at Team Titan. I’m also doing some more work outs a bit closer to home in south London – Locker 27, Athletic Edge and Urban Kings all deserve a shout out.
I’ll be heading out to ATT in February, but I’ve got a few things I’m working on over here first. I’m going to bring in a few guys to train with me here for a few weeks, which I think is going to be good for me. I’ll tell you more about that as it unfolds! Once I’m out at ATT, it will be business as usual, and I’ll be there for four weeks. I come back to London a week before fight night- don’t forget, tickets go on sale next week!
Winning breeds confidence, and my confidence has taken a bit of a knock in my last couple of fights. So I am going to be working with a mind coach who has already helped me massively. Regardless of what goes down once they lock the cage door behind me, March 18 is going to be hugely emotional for me. I need to find a way to channel that emotion away from my training so I can stay absolutely focussed. I’m an emotional guy, but I know that my mind is the most powerful tool available to me, so I have to keep it free of clutter.
So, that’s where I’m at right now! If you’ve got any burning questions for me, send me a tweet and I’ll answer them all in a blog post in the next couple of weeks. Nothing is off limits, but I reserve the right to change names and details as appropriate to protect the guilty! Don’t forget to follow me on Snapchat (One_PunchMMA), Instagram, and Twitter and I’ll keep you all updated with my final fight camp. My new store is now live – I’m going to add more products soon, but for now, you can still pick up a classic One Punch shirt!
