FF: For the past year you have boxed mainly in Europe and you now reside in Croatia. What have been some of your highlights so far since coming to Europe, both inside and outside of boxing?
MdM: I decided to make something happen rather than waiting and I managed to get in the ring 4 times in 6 weeks. It was hard work travelling finding gyms, finding someone to wrap my hands or give me water in between rounds and not knowing anything about who I was fighting but it all worked out. Last year I was in Germany, Malta, Croatia and Australia with boxing. The highlight was definitely the WBU title fight in my wife’s home town Pozega Croatia. We managed to create an incredible event with celebrities, a music show, television and some great boxing action from an idea I had one year before. Behind the scenes we had to deal with some serious threats but we pulled it off.
