Testimonials

“Donald Tharpe can not be identified by a word or a sentence. He is as complex as a DNA Helix, Outside the ring he is soft spoken, kind, he always puts others before himself. In short, I am blessed to have him as a friend, and to be apart of the Bad Company Family. You can find me ring side at all the fights and I will be happy to let you sit with me and see beast mode at a closer angle so you can fully appriciate the reason why I will always be a spectator.”

What Makes a Winner

Don't be afraid to fail, encourage your talent, and use your heart. And never be unprepared.

Competing at the highest level is not about winning. It's about preparation, courage, understanding, and heart. Winning is the result.

I believe anybody who is not afraid to fail is a winner. You can be prepared and have the best talent there is, but you can't necessarily control the outcome. A winner is somebody who goes out there every day and exhausts himself trying to get something accomplished. Being able to get the most from their ability. That's what characterizes a winner.
