Shooting for reebok

Picking up a set of gloves in the gym is one thing… but stepping into the cage is something else.

Danny “HOT CHOCOLATE” Roberts is a UFC Welterweight competitor and is climbing the rankings through hard work and dedication.  Reebok athlete, Roberts was a former Cage Warriors fighter whos career started off in boxing, and it shows.  Fast hands and a solid southpaw stance are evident when face to face, throw in some world class Henry Hooft kickboxing and you’re looking at one elite striker… but this is MMA. 

When things don’t stay on their feet, Danny is more than capible of utilising a solid ground game.  Coach Greg Jones (126-4) 3 x NCAA champion is on hand along with a who’s who of stable mates at the Hardknocks 365 Gym in Florida.

This Shoot was in preperation of a fight at UFC FIGHT NIGHT 113 in the SSE Arena Glasgow on 16/07/2017.  The purpose was to assist in raising the fighters profile prior to the bout.  Reebok decided this time to outsource to us to get the job done… Working with Danny was fun and easy and the atmosphere was relaxed.  This is key with a fighter doing media duties during fight camp.

Here’s our Jackle & Hyde collaboration with Reebok and Danny “HOT CHOCOLATE” Roberts (feat. Corrie Tait and Mike Minard) – Location, Titanium Combat Academy, Liverpool, L27
