In case you hadn’t heard news:
I’ve met the young man pictured here, Jacob “The Snake” Beckmann, and his dream is to be a cage fighter and win the belt. That’s the only reason I’d be willing to step back into the cage, for a title fight.
I may have bitten off more than I can chew in this one and I’m sure I won’t be the favorite in this fight but I’ll be there giving it my all.
To give Jacob the full fight experience we’re even doing our own walkout shirts complete with supporting sponsors.
I’m not going to offer the shirts on my website. BUT I figured after supporting me for years, I’d make the offer to all of you.
What does the shirt look like? You’ll see April 18th smile emoticon Trust me that it looks amazing. (TRUSTSEND) An old school fight poster with Jacob and I on it. Most likely I’ll never be reprinting these shirts so this may be your one chance to get one.
If YOU want one, or several, message me directly to place your order. Cost with shipping here in the US of A will be $28. If you’re international and you want ONE shirt cost will be $32. I’ll probably take a bath on the shipping, but it is what it is. International shipping sucks…
Message me, I’ll make a note of your order and you’ll get your shirt after I’ve got them made. Men, women and kid’s shirts.
And a portion of these proceeds are going towards a charity that we are working on to raise awareness for kid’s with special needs.
To be honest, the last thing I want to do is spend hours labeling packages and mailing out shirts. So put me to work for a good cause!
Final thing: I HATE the phrase, “Raising awareness.” But, in this case, I feel that raising awareness can actually do some good in this world. Not only educating people that men and women like Jacob have dreams and goals but also their families have dreams, goals, and unconditional love for them.
I’m just a bit part in this play. Jacob’s mother is the real fighter right along side Jacob. It’s the least I can do to give them a little support on their journey through life.
April 18, 2015 at the Roseland Theater in Portland, Oregon. Big thanks to the FCFF for hosting our bout and to Jacob Beckmann’s coach Greg Walker for getting Jacob fight ready.
See you there!
