Joel Mickells, Revgear sponsored fighter
, won his first professional fight on Thursday, September 3, 2009.
This was a Pro Muay Thai Fight for Ring Wars Omaha
, and Joel's fight was the co-main event of the evening.To be ready for this fight, Joel had started a new strength and conditioning program and a 7-week of hardcore Muay Thai training at Mid-America Martial Arts. Joel says that “training was literary hell”.
But it was obviously worth it. Joel's opponent was Chad Obermiller. Joel won in Round 2 when Chad dropped, and the referee stepped in and stopped the fight giving Joel his first win as a professional!
