Fighter pro­file: Blair Frew

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

HE’S a fighter who is no stranger to Air­lie Fight Night.

Blair Frew’s first event was in 2013 and he hasn’t looked back since.

“I moved up here about four years ago. I trained with An­ton (Zafir) and started com­pet­ing in MMA. I’ve al­ways loved the sport,” he said. “I grew up boxing, my dad was a boxer. I sort of de­cided that it was some­thing I needed to do one day be­fore I got too old.”

Frew will be step­ping out of his com­fort zone be­cause af­ter five MMA fights, he will step into the muay thai ring for the first time.

“I usu­ally fight MMA, but I feel good,” he said.

“I pre­fer strik­ing any­way so I think it will be right up my al­ley. I get to have a bit

of fun as well. I do take it just as se­ri­ously, but it’s a bit of fun as well as do­ing some­thing dif­fer­ent.”

Now spon­sored by Whit­sun­day Tat­too­ing, Frew said he loved train­ing at Whit­sun­day Mar­tial Arts and loved the thrill of fight­ing.

“It’s the big­gest adren­a­line rush I’ve ever had. I’ve done sky­div­ing, bungee jump­ing, ev­ery­thing. This is it. It gets the heart rac­ing the most,” he said.

VET­ERAN: Blair Frew is no stranger to Air­lie Fight Night.
