Interview: Gary Rooney talks IMMAF’s, fighting & pizza.

Irish amateur fighter Gary Rooney sat down and discussed a whole host of things.

From his preparation for the IMAAF’s starting this week. How he doesn’t believe as an amateur that camps are necessary, and that he prefers to take the approach of continuous training and skill acquisition and will prepare for specific opponents when he turns over to the professional ranks.

The conversation moves to Gary’s community work, the inception of Flats Jiu-Jitsu and how he came to have a mural in his home town.

We then turned to the most important topic of all, pizza.
