On top of that, I'm starting to get the itch to get out of this town and see some more of the world.

So what I'm thinking:
Feb - Keep up usual routine, get burpees going again, start finding time to work on striking endurance on my own time, improve diet (more food, leaner food)

March/April/May - Continue with Feb's routine with 2-3 trips a week to the pro gym in Langley for sparring or better classes. Win fight in Vernon...April 17th I think? (assuming I get opponent) 1 week rest immediately after. Resume training, another fight may 29th (once again assuming opponent works out).

June/July/August - Leave Canada for some better training. At first I was set on Brazil but I'm also considering L.A. Plenty of time to decide but I'll weigh my options out over the coming months.

September and on... - Return to Canada, move to Langley and find a job. Begin training at their pro gym full time. Start pro career, possibly with a drop to middleweight.

Already gave my roommate and boss notice that I'm out in June. I'll keep you guys updated as I weigh the pros and cons of Brazil vs. US. Who knows, I'm not against extending the trip if I were to find work cooking in L.A. or teaching English in Brazil. Shit, maybe both are on the horizon.
Middleweight? Arent you 6´4" ? I have hard time myself imagine at 205 with 6´3" - only with 1 day pre fight weigh-ins..

I wish you best luck with starting pro career.
