Wow 9 fights in one year? the guy sounds like a jerk. Street fights are retarded and so are the people who partake in them. Do yourself a favor and go to a proper boxing/kickboxing/muay thai gym, meet some people who can actually kick some ass, train with them, learn to fight, learn to respect others, learn real discipline and you'll soon stop looking up to morons.
Besides the training, the mindset of a real fighter (one with nothing to prove) will help you out an incredible amount in the years to come in ways youd never expect.
My preaching may not be necessary but its worth saying over and over and...
To know the heart of a person, look not at what he has already achieved, but what he aspires to.
