LMGFL.COM JUNE 2016 9 EDITOR S LETTER or someone who fights in the sport s supersized division Tyrone Spong was proving as elusive as a bantamweight when it came to interviewing him for our proposed cover story--my first as group editor of Lifestyle Media Group. The legendary kickboxerturned-traditional boxer a resident of west Broward County had tentatively confirmed and rescheduled a few times before we agreed to meet on a Monday afternoon at JACO Hybrid Training Center the Boca Raton facility where Spong works out with a group of mixed martial arts standouts known as the Blackzilians. I had been waiting at the gym about 30 minutes when my cellphone rang. It was Spong. Kevin I m sorry to cancel on you but I m heading to the hospital he said. My friend was involved in a hitand-run accident last night. They amputated his leg ... We re not sure he s going to make it. He didn t. Jordan Parsons was a promising 25-year-old MMA fighter who had moved to South Florida just to train with the Blackzilians. He was walking home around midnight on May 1 when according to police a Range Rover traveling more than 100 mph struck him as he crossed the street. Spong and I would finally sit down late the next night at a Starbucks near his house. A few hours earlier he had been at his friend s bedside at Delray Medical Center Parsons mother had asked his training mates to say their final goodbyes before the family took him off life support. Our feature on Spong who at age 30 has designs on the heavyweight boxing title only briefly touches on the events of that week. But the incident clearly was fresh in his mind as he spoke candidly and at times with great introspection about his life inside and outside the ring. The Lifestyle team wishes to thank Spong for sharing his own compelling story amid such a tragedy. We also extend our heartfelt condolences to the family of Jordan Parsons.

BY KEVIN KAMINSKI The Starbucks near his west Broward County home is empty save for a few employees doing their final cleanup before closing. After an hourlong conversation and three cups of oatmeal with trail mix Tyrone Spong wants to say a few words about the tragedy he initially declined to discuss. His friend Jordan Parsons would die the following afternoon at age 25. The two men chased their respective dreams at JACO Hybrid Training Center in Boca Raton as part of the famed Blackzilians mixed martial arts team. Parsons was a rising MMA star in the featherweight division Spong is a seminal figure in the sport of kickboxing a 10-time world champion who at age 30 has set his sights on the most prestigious combat title of all the heavyweight boxing championship. In this moment Spong s thoughts are not on what might be but on what could have been. Parsons the victim of a hit-and-run accident in Delray Beach that made national headlines will soon be taken off life support. Earlier in the day Spong and several other MMA fighters bid a final farewell to their friend at Delray Medical Center. It s a reminder says the father of four that every day above ground is a blessing. One moment you have everything the next you have nothing. Or worse You re gone Spong says. We think we own the world but we don t. We live by the mercy and the grace of nature. People like to act like they re this or that. But I try to be humble. I m not better than anyone ... until I step in the ring. At nearly 6 feet 3 inches and roughly 225 pounds the heavily tattooed native of Suriname looks every bit as imposing as his kickboxing r sum would suggest--more than 80 knockout victories alone by Spong s count. When I connect he says matter-of-factly it s over. But there s more to the man who dismantled one of his 2013 opponents in only 16 seconds than meets the eye. In many ways it starts with the rich tapestry of Amazon rainforest-inspired animals artifacts and flora painted on Spong s body tattoos that speak to the beloved South American country in which he was born and briefly raised until his mother moved him to Amsterdam when he was 6. His father a high-ranking police officer at the time would stay behind--for good. 26 JUNE 2016 LMGFL.COM LMGFL.COM JUNE 2016 27 PHOTO BY RYAN LOCO PHOTO BY RYAN LOCO Of his grueling workout schedule Spong says You have to suffer and suffer and suffer. If you don t give it your all don t expect all. Expect half. 28 JUNE 2016 LMGFL.COM PHOTO BY ERIC COLEMAN It was tough on my mom being a single parent and tough on me Spong says. I m a nature person I love to be outdoors. To be ripped away from the jungle to leave that freedom for a thirdstory apartment in the toughest neighborhood in Amsterdam I felt trapped. At that age I didn t understand. Spong knew enough to stand up for himself when older kids picked on him for being quiet--or when they discovered his fondness for birds of which there are more than 700 species in Suriname. You always had to prove yourself he says. I got into a lot of street fights in Amsterdam. I couldn t accept being bullied. After losing interest in the disciplines as a child Spong became obsessed with karate and taekwondo at age 13 never missing a practice. Two years later he won his first amateur kickboxing fight by knockout. He would turn professional at 18 and capture his first world championship shortly thereafter. Fighting mostly in the Netherlands Spong wouldn t visit the U.S. until he was in his early 20s. Once there he trained briefly in Las Vegas with Floyd Mayweather Sr. According to Spong so impressed was the father of Floyd Money Mayweather Jr. with the martial artist s potential as a boxer that he and promoter Bob Arum offered the kickboxer a contract. I was so young and so on top of my game as a kickboxer that I was scared to leave my trusted environment Spong says. It wasn t my time. Spong eventually moved to South Florida to help Boca-based MMA fighter Rashad Evans one of the signature Blackzilians train for his 2011 light-heavyweight fight with Tito Ortiz. Though he continued to win world titles in kickboxing there were few challenges left for Spong who could see the sport losing its luster compared to MMA (which he tried and won two fights) and boxing. In 2014 during the first round of a kickboxing battle in Istanbul against G khan Saki Spong fractured his tibia and fibula. Ten months later on the same day (March 6) that Mike Tyson made his professional debut in 1985 Spong stepped into the boxing ring for the first time disposing of a Hungarian fighter named Gabor Farkas in a little over a minute. Since then he has reeled off three more victories all by knockout. When asked why he believes his martial arts skills will translate to the boxing ring Spong puts down his oatmeal spoon and inches forward in his chair. I ve been kicked in the body by guys who weigh 270 pounds I ve been kneed in the jaw by guys who weigh 280 pounds he says. I m not saying I m Superman but there aren t a lot of guys who are better warriors than me. That doesn t always guarantee a win. But the toughness The heart The mental strength The balls It s all there. Nearly 10 years after being courted by Mayweather Sr. Spong believes his time as a boxer finally has arrived. He s not trying to win the heavyweight championship belt he ll tell you he will win it. Had I become a boxer in my early 20s I d be the biggest star in the sport he says. I would have done the same thing that I did in kickboxing. I would have been a multiple champion in different weight classes. But I can still show that I m a champion-- and one of the best combat sports athletes period. That s my goal. LMGFL.COM JUNE 2016 29 WEAR IT WELL T 30 Ken Downing fashion director at Neiman Marcus weighs in on fall s hottest trends Downing recently made a special appearance at Neiman Marcus Fort Lauderdale presenting plenty of eye candy during a Spring Runway Report that was consistent with his love of individuality and an ongoing celebration of provocative style. Overt opulence is the sexiest way to look says Downing pictured above (black suit). I ve always said More is more and less is a bore. Minimalism is for amateurs those that like a lot always have a little more fun. BY MATTHEW AUERBACH hough this month marks the official start of summer fashionistas throughout South Florida are still asking variations of the same question What will I be wearing this fall Who better to offer expert insight into the upcoming season s national and regional style trends than Ken Downing senior vice president and fashion director at Neiman Marcus. Fresh from Paris Fashion Week JUNE 2016 LMGFL.COM No stranger to Lifestyle (he graced the d cover in September 2015) Downing later ine took time to sit down with the magazine and g discuss what s hot and what s looming on the ights fashion horizon. Here are some highlights ertain Downing is quite pleased that a certain e spring trend will continue to make an impact this fall Lace lace and more ace lace he says. I love the idea of lace because it s not only for cocktail or for rings evening but also for daytime. It brings this kind of great romanticism. The style is enjoying a freedom along with its rebirth. Forget black or white lace Kelly green and other deep k hues will come forward. Also look nd for lace with plenty of pleating and rs flounces embroidered with flowers and organic details. How to accessorize with your lace Chokers and big earrings Downing says. You re going to see a lot of chokers as we go into fall. On the footwear front Downing es says to go bold or go home. Shoes re this season are embellished they re howing adorned they re decorated. I m showing h chunky heels stilettos shoes with d color--plus everything wraps and ties right now. If there s not some eone interesting detail that makes someone re stop and take a second look you re in the wrong shoe. Tapestry is leading the adornment t trend whether for dresses shoes or handbags. There are all kinds of g croquet and re-embroidery [being introduced] Downing says. The idea of dimension and texture is so beautiful. Anything that has a flat surface needs some sort of embellishment to it. t If you re not feeling tapestry go with your favorite jewelry pieces. I love putting a lot tting of jewelry on top of lace (and all the trends this season) it becomes this very opulent [look] that s your personal decadence ence Downing says. I think that s really a chic y way to look.

Most of us change our look regularly to keep it fresh. However some entrepreneurs have websites that are from the Backstreet Boys era. Just like you would not wear neon-bright headbands to work out you should not let your PR go out of style. With constant changes in the Web social and traditional media you need to stay current. Today your business might be the same but your customers online habits have changed. Job-one is to field a modern and dynamic website. It is the number one point of contact for anyone seeking to learn about you. Is your website up to the challenge More specifically is your website mobile ready More than 60 percent of website visitors use smartphones or tablets to access the internet. Your website must be designed so that images fit nicely on any given mobile device and pages are easily navigable. If not current and prospective customers will look elsewhere. How fresh is your content The online brochure era ended before the breakup of Destiny s Child. Think of your website as a living breathing animal. It must be regularly fed new information news and images. Are search engines finding your website Search engines such as Google frequently update their search rules. While regularly searched terms help your rankings fresh and relevant content remains king. Now may be the perfect time for an assessment to see how you are ranking versus the competition. Too often we hear businesses say We have SEO covered when in reality their site can t be easily found on Google. Do you have effective PR Generating coverage in newspapers television trade journals and key blogs is very valuable to building reputation and business. Another tool is writing articles offering expert commentary. Are you maximizing social media Many businesses have Facebook LinkedIn Instagram and Twitter accounts but rarely update them or engage their followers. It is almost better to have no social media presence if you are not in a position to keep things current. Your social media pages should be managed by knowledgeable pros who can reliably answer basic questions and generate appropriate content and take the conversation offline when necessary to resolve individual problems. Research shows that social media users are looking for relevant information dynamic images and charts but what engages them the best is short informational videos which can be shared across your online electronic newsletter and social channels. Have you had a brush with the likes of Yelp Google reviews or Rip-off Report They keep us Online Reputation Management (ORM) pros busy. As you know review sites cut both ways. Staying on top of your ratings and feedback is almost a full-time job. One thing is certain customers often make their decisions based on what others say. Managing the feedback - good and bad - requires trained communications professionals who know how to leverage the best references and resolve complaints.
