2015 will be different…that is what Jace Law wants.

That it will be better then 2014 MIMMA 2 when he stumble at the semi-finals, due to meeting a heavier opponent who uses his weight to his advantage. 2015 Jace is more prepared by focusing more on his ground game & wrestling. As for his striking …he’s totally at home in that area, with experience from TaeKwonDo in his teens to the last few years as a MuayThai exponent, in short when it comes to stand up, he will bring war!

Jace is from Kuching & will be representing GymBox Kuching at MIMMA 3 tryout this 28-29 Mac 2015 at Plaza Merdeka Kuching. Jace is leading the charge for GymBox’s local fighter. As for foreign fighter fighting at the newly introduce Foreign Pride category, Mehrubon & Ahmadjon of Tajikistan will seek to make an impact. GymBox official Fight Team:
