despite their attempts When they found fame and fortune on television, it was the kickboxing gym where the brothers really thrived. This is a well-equipped facility in an old warehouse in a commercial area, under the guidance of former military kick-hit boxer Amir His Subhasik, who has become close to them and their families.
Leicestershire gym owner Johal thought Andrew was an accomplished kickboxer and admired the way he fought with his hands down. This is a risky strategy that allows the fighter to bob or weave quickly, but at the risk of knocking him out of the blow.
Johal suspected that Andrew had developed a knack for self-promotion during his time as a martial artist. “Andrew has always been a bit controversial. He has to be a bad cop sometimes,” Djohar said, explaining that the big bucks and brawls go to the loudest fighters.
“Andrew learned it a long time ago. He’s always saying something to get people’s support, to get attention. As a person, he’s not like that,” Djohar said. He added that Andrew had taken part in online kickboxing forums and written controversial things to draw attention to his fights.
Dutch kickboxer Ibrahim El Bustati, who defeated Andrew to win the championship belt in 2016, mirror The alpha male persona is all an act. “He lies to a lot of people. He’s not who he says he is,” he told the tabloid. “I know him very well. Andrew and his brother Tristan.” I interviewed and talked to them all week before the game and he is a very nice person.”
Andrew also took the over-the-top approach of pitching his fight in the fighting press. To tell In 2013, one of the interviewers for the combat sports magazine Love 2 Fight said that he came from a mysterious land called Wudan and was trained by someone called Master Po. It was incorporated into Disdain’s training materials, illustrated in elaborate cartoon-style cartoons, and adopted by his followers.
“His fight was selling himself,” Dzhokhar said. “He literally called himself ‘Cobra’ because like Cobra, if you use his right hand right behind you, you can knock most people out.”
Both brothers had success in the ring. Andrew won several world title fights and Tristan won his two British titles. It wasn’t a lucrative deal, but it did bring in some money.Andrew finally got a sports car, an Aston he Martin DB9, when in a fight he earned £10,000.
“It was very strange because it was a one-bedroom apartment with an Aston Martin DB sitting outside,” recalls O’Halloran. That led to the origin of Andrew’s infamous nickname, “Top G.” “When we were younger, we used to say, ‘That’s the best G,'” recalls O’Halloran. “This guy is the best gangster here. He drives an Aston Martin.”
