I never thought I’d have to write these words. In May this year, I received the biggest body blow by being told I’ve been diagnosed with Neuroendocrine carcinoma. My mind staggered to take in the doctor’s words considering there’s only so much as humans we can control.
This is my story.
I share it, so others are inspired by the words of some of my combat sports heroes. In the darkest of times, these words have been the ‘words from my corner’, the pep talk I needed to pick myself up and battle on.
Jake Paul began his road to stardom as a content creator, initially building his personal brand on a short-form content platform called Vine.
Now, he’s become a multi-talented entrepreneur, where he’s most widely recognised for his impact in the combat sports world.
Jake is 25 years old and has built a 5-0 pro boxing record.
He’s also collaboratively worked with Matchroom Boxing Promoter, Eddie Hearn, to put on a significant female boxing super fight between Amanda Serrano & Katie Taylor.
Jake also has formed his own boxing promotion known as Most Valuable Promotions, where his key client is Amanda Serrano herself.
What exactly is my desired sports industry legacy?
Ash’s Sports Talk has been an integral part of building my personal brand to gain recognition in the industry, a major reason for receiving my position as a Digital Content Executive at Oporto Sports.
You can view my portfolio here in terms of my achievements.
Now, my legacy lies in the desire to support athletes, brands, and other passionate combat parties through the power of athlete-driven marketing, storytelling, content creation and other digital marketing methods, which I’m always happy to chat more about.
