Muay Thai fighter and Sports Illustrated model Mia Kang recently revealed some interesting details on her fight preparation routine, including a tip on having lots of sex right before a big match.
The 28-year-old half-British half-Korean beauty from Hong Kong, who has appeared in both Sports Illustrated and Vogue, is about to head to Thailand to prepare for her next professional bout.
“I am really excited for my second pro fight. I am excited to go ‘rogue samurai’ by myself,” Kang told the New York Post in an interview.
“No one is coming with me. It is all about me and my personal growth to be a better fighter. When you get in that ring you are 100 percent alone.”
She also revealed that listening to “Girlfight” by Brooke Valentine before each fight gets her all psyched up.
Kang also likes to juice-cleanse and increase her cardio, before offering a helpful advice: “When females have sex, testosterone levels increase, so the recommendation is to have as much sex as possible before you fight.”
She noted, however, that she’s currently single, and, “not actively out there looking.”
“If I lose because I am not good, then that is fair. But if I lose because I am tired, then it’s a waste of time,” she added.
Not much was revealed about her next fight as she told the Post that she won’t know who her opponent is until the day of the fight.
“But that is good because I can only focus on training. Besides, she should be afraid of me,” Kang said.
Kang, who began modeling at the age of 13, was victorious in her professional Muay Thai debut earlier this year by way of third round TKO.
