TIME TO FEEL THE WRATH: Fighter prepares to fight
KICKBOXING: After overcoming one battle to become a national champion, Bundaberg's Wrath Schulz is ready to conquer his next fight.
Last month the Muay Thai fighter won gold in the 86kg youth division for 16-17 year-olds on the Gold Coast unopposed.
Fighting back from an ankle injury he became a national champion in the sport he loves.
"The first month I couldn't get out of bed," he revealed how bad it was.
"That was just devastating for me and eventually I got back up on my feet and got back into it.
"I just pushed myself through rigorous training and I got there."
And Wrath said it was a bonus not to fight anyone.
"All I had to do was go into the ring and win," he said.
"I was prepared to fight but there was no one there in my age category."
Now he will prepare for the Youth World Muay Thai Championships where he will fight against the best athletes from 19 countries.
"It will be run over 10 days with up to two fights a day," he said.
"My preparation is focusing on getting cardio and the endurance to fight and compete for days on end."
And he can't wait.
"It will be my first time overseas and it's going to be an adventure," he said.
"I'll remember this for the rest of my life."
Schulz is currently looking for funds to help him get there with a GoFundMepage, raffles and sausage sizzles planned to help him.
