The WKA is proud to recognize the September fighter of the month Elvis Gashi.

Gashi, a trainer at VisionQuest Mauy Thai out of Westchester Fight Club has over 16 years of fight experience.

Having begun his journey in combat training at the age of eight years old in his native country of Kosovo.

Elvis stands with a undefeated pro record of 19 wins with an impressive 10 knockouts.

Elvis's most recent victory came at Glory 43 with a 2nd round k.o. over his opponent Josh Jauncey.
This knock out victory was not only one of the most exciting battles of Glory 43 but earned Elvis the accolade a fight of the night.

When asked about some of Elvis's heroes in the fight world he credits some of the old K1 fighters like Andy Hug and Andy Sower as being two of the instrumental figures in his journey to a successful career in fighting.

Outside of the world of martial arts Elvis credits George Castriot also known as Skandenberg, a 13th century Albanian nobleman and militant commander as being one of the biggest cultural influences in his pursuit of combat sports.

Elvis's current trainer is Primo Bellarosa of Westchester fight club.
Primo has stated that Elvis "is one of the hardest working and most committed guys that he has ever trained".

Primo has trained UFC fighters, Bellator MMA fighter's and various kickboxing and Muay Thai regional champions.
Through out all of the successful champions Primo has trained over the years he maintains that Elvis "is probably the most dedicated of them all".

Primo went on to say that "his work ethic has no quit at all he will work as hard as he can for every minute of every workout until it's complete".

Elvis's training includes six days a week with a minimum of two sessions a day. Primo stated that "there is nothing fancy about the training sessions...we do pad work daily...sparring a couple days out of the week and conditioning training like cardio and runs in between the entirety of training for a fight".

Elvis is currently anticipating an upcoming return to Glory kickboxing on December 1 from Madison Square Garden.

Elvis Gashi truly embodies his motto of "work hard and be committed...if there is work to be done do it"; he instills this ethic into all of the fighters on his team that he guides.

These qualities are bound to continue to carry Elvis Gashi's career to the greatest heights of Glory kickboxing and beyond.

Congratulations to you Elvis Gashi, the WKA Fighter of the month!
