Asa ten Pow’s martial journey began at the age of five. He started competing in Sanshou, but by the time he turned 16 years old, Asa had reached his limit.
“Sanshou is not that big. There is not much to do with it besides one tournament a year. I wanted to continue doing more. I saw Buakaw and I went into Muay Thai.”
That change of style launched Ten Pow onto the international stage. In 2013, Asa took the Florida State Golden Gloves boxing tournament. He then snagged the ISKA, IKF and the Thai Boxing Association tournament belts.
In 2018 Asa made his Glory debut. He fought three times under the Glory banner, and won his fights in spectacular fashion which led to Asa being voted the New Comer Of The Year.
