Over the last few years I've drunkenly scrawled out some form of thank you letter to everyone and I think this year, more than any other, that letter has been needed!
This year has been rather, different with more people helping than every before. A twitter following that has grown and a significant growth in daily views. We're still a long way from where we want to be, but we have taken huge strides in 2019 to be in the right place.
First, before I thank anyone, I'd just like to lay down some apologies.
Firstly to Colin Yee, the wonderful host of the Asian Boxing Podcast, I'm so sorry for having been an absolute pain in the arse in regards to scheduling this year. When the podcast began I didn't expect to have a 2019 quite as weird as I did. If you're still up for it, we'll work something out in the new year and get the show back on the road!
One thing I really wasn't aware of going into the end of the year was just how much my workload was going to increase in December. I'm usually on top of things but this December has been busy, even by busy December standards. For that my long suffering partner has taken the brunt of things, and I'm sorry to her for the crap she's put up with.
Anyway with that out the way here come the thank you's...
Thank you to Rene Bonsubre Jr, his work and insight in to the workings of Filipino boxing has been a huge help in 2019, and we doubt he'll ever realise just how much we have appreciated his help. The same applies to Eric Armit, George Delis and Daniel Sharman for their regular contributions. I really hope all 4 guys will continue with what they've done in 2019 for us, and will continue contributing articles going forward.
So many thanks to Tim, who has provided a fantastic resource with his Stanza page for scheduling, and his GIFs are just amazing, serious if you're not following him on twitter (@hock1717) you really should.
Of course we also need to thank each and everyone of you wonderful people who read what we do. You are the ones that make this worth doing. You are the reason we continue to cover the obscure fights from Asia, share the news we do, report the fights we do and share the videos we do.
Without you guys this would be us writing to ourselves, so thank you! And see you all next year!
Have a great new year everyone!
So you're still reading? Jesus folks! Okay fine...so to let you into some "exciting" news. In 2020 we are looking to continue a lot of our features, and add some new ones. The plan is to have several DAILY features, every day! We're looking to put out more opinion based pieces in 2020 than we usually do, and continue to build on the mini series did at the end of the year. Also, in 2020, we will, finally, roll out the Newsletter that we tested in 2019. If you've not previously signed up for that, but want to in the future, please fill in this form!
Once again. Thank You!
This is just an opinion, maaaan! It's easy to share our opinions, and that's what you'll find here, some random opinion pieces
