In 2001 when he fought in pro rules Muaythai became the first Chinese Malaysian pro Muaythai fighter. He was also among the first Malaysian to fight in K1 promotions back in 2007. He also fought MMA when ONE Championship signed him for a bout in 2013, with an MMA record of 1-3-0, it was a testing ground for Alex as he does not back down from a good fight and always wanted to test himself in different situation.
Alex is not a full time fighter, he used to work in a big corporation in the export division, hence has travel internationally a lot. He still finds time to train & keep himself fighting fit at 42.
When he is not tied down to work, he would look for fights to compete in. This is his way of always keeping himself mentally sharp & physically fit.
Being a pioneer in Malaysian combat sports scene certainly gives Alex a large network of friends and knowing that BMAEX founder Alvin Chong was looking for a fighter to replace Jing Yi, Alex decides to stepped up even though on very short notice.
He has been itching to fight after tasting sweet victory in the 1st BMAEX last year when he fought against a young fighter from Tawau.
Representing LLS, TNT, GEG & Titans Alex likes to be among his friends in the martial arts circle and to him coming to this 2nd BMAEX is also a time to catch up and support his friends, but Alex also has his eye on the ISKA BMAEX belt and will surely give Mostafa a good fight for the title.
