Ever tried your skills against Nonito?
(laughs) We shadow spar. Actually, we help each other train. I help him with his plyometrics and footwork, while he holds the paddles and bags for me.
No, really. Do you get really physical when during lover’s quarrel?
No. But you know, I totally think it’s the easier way, di ba? Kasi at least if we’re throwing punches and kicks at each other, the bruises will heal. I’d rather fight like that. But honestly, we just take time to be apart.
Do you think your passion for fighting carries over to the other things that you do?
Everything is very passionate, all that emotion is in everything we do—whether we’re running, or we’re training, lounging around, and wrestling or something.
