Shane Burgos releases a statement after his first professional loss.
Featherweight Shane Burgos lost his first professional fight Saturday when he was stopped by Calvin Kattar in the third round of their fight in Boston. Burgos and Kattar had a competitive first couple of rounds, splitting them one apiece. That said, in the third round he got caught by a big uppercut and was finished. It was his first professional loss and he’s handling it like a champion.
He took to his Instagram account to let his fans know they are all appreciated. Hopefully, Shane also knows how much he’s appreciated. One of the nicest guys in the sport, Shane is a true student of the game. He was a major fan and studied the sport he now makes a living at.
Shane Burgos will be back. Bet on it.
Live by the sword, die by the sword. Always been my mentality in this game. I live for this, I love this life. I put my health on the line every time I step in there and I have no problem with that. It’s how i provide and i will do whatever i need to make sure my wife and daughter r taken care of. This is the hardest pill to swallow but respect to my opponent. I trained my ass off for that fight knowing it would be my toughest fight to date and i felt absolutely amazing heading into the cage. I have no excuses. To not get the win is a pain I’ve never known before but u either win or u learn and i promise that this has lit a fire under me like never before. Bittersweet night because i am so happy that my brother @julioarce89 got the win in his ufc debut. It was his night. I will take this like a man and comeback from this even better. Thank u God for my beautiful family and all the blessings in life. Thank u to all my friends, family coaches, training partners and supporters out there. I’m sorry that i let u guys down.. but I promise I will be back like never before
