Kevin was born in Reading, Pennsylvania July 27, 1980. He spent much of his youth moving all around the country until finally ending up in Las Vegas in 1994. Alcoholism and partying completely took over his life until one day he finally decided to face all his fears, turn his life around and go after his lifelong dream of becoming a fighter.
He started training Muay Thai in 2003 at Master Toddy’s. Kevin has trained in Thailand numerous times at camps including Sitkuanim, Sasiprapa (in 2007 when he competed at the king’s birthday celebration), Sitsongpeenong (in 2010 when he took part in the Toyota Cup 8-man tournament which he made it to the semi-finals), Sitmonchai (which he has been to 3 times to date) and most recently at Sutai in Phuket.
In December 2010 Ross was Voted Muay Thai North American Fighter of the year. Always a crowd pleaser who lives up to his quote, “I’d rather lose an exciting fight than win a boring one.”
