Interview with Panicos Yusuf from the Tankō Main Event 14th May 2016
Panicos Yusuf needs no introduction in the world of Muay Thai and I was absolutely buzzing to be able to catch up with him. He is one of the nicest guys I have met and had chance to talk with. I was looking forward to get to know about his time in Singapore at Evolve MMA and what training was like there and what it was like to be trained by top level fighters.
I was also looking forward to, like my interview with Keith, getting to know about the ‘Facebook beef’ that went down between the two and what it was all about. I interviewed Pan before Keith and got to find out about it all and stuff. I was also keen to get to know, after speaking with Keith on Facebook about the link between the two with Liam Robinson and how that shaped what went on in the ring.
It was humbling to see Pan talking about Liam, to get to know that Liam is at the forefront of what he does within the sport and that he is always thinking about him and the decisions he makes are because of the lessons he had learned while being taught by him.
Thank you to Panicos Yusuf for taking the time out to have a chat with us, I really do hope we can catch up again sometime in the future, whether it be at an event or just a catch up in general. I really hope you guys enjoy this interview as much as I did making it and editing it. There is one last one to go and this next one is a good one. It is with the cracking little fighter Shane Farquharson who took the win over Andy Lofthouse who’s interview you can see here.
