Poised to retain his title as lightweight world champion, ONE Championship‘s Christian Lee is slated to fight Iuri Lapicus this Friday live.
Before you tune in at 8:30p.m. on meWATCH or at 10pm on Channel 5, here, his pre-fight routine.
1. What he eats.
At the beginning of fight camp, I have a very strict diet that consists only of protein and vegetables without carbs. Once I hit my fight weight and stay below it, my diet consists of a lot of carbs and basically whatever I feel like eating.
Lately, I have been eating a lot of Loco Mocos, which is a local dish that Hawaii is famous for. It consists of rice, eggs, a hamburger patty and gravy.
2. What he listens to.
I listen to a variety of genres when I train — mostly rap, rock and reggae. When I am training with my family, we listen to my reggae playlist majority of the time.
3. How he relaxes.
My favourite way to relax is by spending quality time with my wife and my family.
4. The conditioning exercises he does.
Throughout fight camp, a lot of my conditioning is done in training. I do a lot of sparring rounds and drills that prep me to be in the best fight shape. If I’m not training, I run and swim to help with my cardio.
5. How he spends his free time.
I spend most of my free time getting a lot of rest, eating, and spending time with my wife, my family, and my dogs.
6. How much he sleeps.
I make it a point to sleep at least eight hours or more every night. Throughout the day I don’t have any extra time to sleep due to the fact that I have two to three training sessions scheduled every day.
7. What movies he watches to get inspired.
Rocky III and Rocky IV.
