• Vegan boxer Bradley takes the belt in upset

    Holy sh*t! Let me just start by saying I am a HUGE boxing fan since I was a young girl. So tonight when Timothy Bradley who is VEGAN during training WON, I wanted to high-five the vegan Gods! I was literally jumping up and down on the sofa. A vegan boxer is now the WBO welterweight title holder. How cool is that?!

    Bradley describes his vegan diet was “…it’s the most unbelievable feeling ever… the reason I love it so much is that I feel connected to the world.”

    To be fair, it was a HUGE upset. Everyone and their mothers thought Manny Pacquiao, the former champ should have won. I was surprised by the win too. However, Pacquiao just didn’t seem himself. I got the vibe he was not very present before and during the match. He was MIA before the fight, delaying the match to watch basketball and to run on the treadmill for 20 minutes. Where Bradley was laced up and ready to fight from the beginning. Also it’s been reported that Bradley even broke his foot during the match and STILL won. That’s pure plant power my friends!

    As a Las Vegas local, I especially love boxing because of the crowds it attracts. So I can’t wait for the rematch to eat vegan chips and salsa and watch plant strong Bradley beat him again. Maybe Pacquiao should take notes and lay off the meat for the rematch.

    Go plant strong!
