A Champions Uprising with Chris “CROM” Romulo
The Muay Thai Guys Podcast – Episode 69
A champion is someone who gets up when he can’t.
We all think of champions as fighters who step in the ring, fight their heart out, and come away with a championship belt around the waist. Well, former WKA champion Chris Romulo is a champion in that sense AND a champion in the sense of overcoming many of lives obstacles that were thrown his way.
For those of you who don’t know Chris or “CROM”, he’s been a major part of the NY Muay Thai community for decades and continues to have a positive influence on all those who surround him. Not only has he overcome multiple injuries to win a professional title, he also faced and conquered even more challenges when Hurricane Sandy hit his home town of Rockaway Beach back in 2012.
