To all our Pound for Pound members, affiliates, friends and family,
we would like to take you for a journey through our memories of 2020!
This year was a challenge!
But, who else should be able to face all that difficulties and adversity better than us fighters?! And we have to say, in our opinion we did really good!
Yes, there were a lot of negative, difficult and sad experiences we had to made, but there were also a lot of positive. And to spend the last days of this year in a positive and hopeful mood, we would like to share with you our best moments of 2020 we had together as a team!
Take some minutes for yourself and enjoy again this year’s wins!
And while reflecting all that great moments, we have to say this year wasn’t that bad, even we had to and still are fighting against Corona! And it wasn’t that bad because of every single one of you!
So thank you everybody one more time for supporting us during this hard and closed times, thank you for your trust and faith in us, for your willpower and strength, and for sticking together and don’t giving up!
We are grateful to call such awesome people as you guys, our team and our family, and we are excited to continue our journey with all of you in 2021!
Merry Christmas and a happy new year!
Stay healthy and stay blessed!
