In this episode of The Striking Corner, Vinny and Eric once again bring Muay Thai fighter Gastón Bolaños to the podcast. A native of Perú but now living in San Francisco, Gastón is a star in the US Muay Thai scene and is now looking to take his world class Muay Thai skills to MMA and Kickboxing under the Bellator banner. In this podcast Vinny and Eric talk to Gastón about leading “The Peruvian Takeover” and showcasing the talented fighters that the Peruvian Muay Thai scene has produced and putting them on display for American audiences. Gastón is a down to earth, classy, and just all around good guy whose passion for Muay Thai is without question! We talk about how he wants to use Muay Thai to inspire and motivate those around him, and how in many ways inside the ring he may be “The Dreamkiller” but outside the ring he is looking to make other people’s dreams come true.
