Linzi (Stingrae) Edwards: “I do love a belt”

Words by Beccy Davies.

received_208706676142196For my first fighter interview rather than a team interview, I wanted to approach somebody that I had admired for a long time mostly for her tenacity in and out of the ring, and because she is somebody who sets goals and sticks to them. My subject is to be Linzi Edwards and is the female I think of when I think of how a Welsh girl is, which is very good natured, but don’t get on the wrong side of her. When I started Muay Thai out of Eagles in Cardiff , I would hear stories of a female from Celtic Pride who fought a couple of my friends at Interclubs. The only way they described her was “ A Beast, hard hitting and always on the front foot”. As I put my questions together I found myself adapting to her personality and seriously wanted to know more…

By the time Jones steps back into the octagon on Feb 27th at BAMMA 24 he’ll have spent nine long months away from competitive action. For a fighter on a 5-fight win streak, surely that can’t be ideal?

Dan Movahedi: The man in the middle

10346219_10152373293246041_4603538614761359885_nBeing the third man in the ring is often a thankless job, apart from occasionally raising the ire of a demographic of fans for ensuring the safety of a fighter and allowing said fighter to not take any more unnecessary damage, the official can often come under attack from the same fighter whose health was protected in this situation. You ask any good referee what is his most important task during a competitive bout?

The answer is always the same, `the fighters health and safety’. Of course there is a lot more to the job than this, and the weight of responsibility hangs heavily around the neck of the man in black as he watches both combatants like a hawk.

The third piece of the equation

Bomber

Oxford Dictionary definition:

A person who drops or sets bombs, especially as an act of terrorism or sabotage.

Urban dictionary definition:

A guy who gets a lot of girls. E.g.:

“Mikey is such a bomber”

“I know! He got with so many girls.”

“BOMBER! BOMBER!”

When describing this particularly enigmatic incarnation of brilliance, who regularly doubles up as the third spoke of combat trinities up and down the country, I know which explanation I’ll always go for. There can be no doubt who I’m referring to, Suffolk’s answer to John Shaft crossed with Big John McCarthy, Ron ‘Bomber’ Frith.
