Mirko Filipovic was born September 1974 in Privlaka, Croatia.
Raised in a working-class family … Mirko quickly realized hard work could be the key to his success.
As a young boy, Mirko’s voracious desire to be the best was unrivaled. His training regimen took place in the family barn where he used crude implements in place of real gym equipment.
Metal scraps from the railway served as weights … and his punching bag was filled with cotton and sand.
Every evening, as darkness fell, the thuds from Mirko’s kicks against a wall could be heard throughout the village – for hours. This routine resulted in a neighbour having to repair the wall every few weeks, as the concrete blocks inevitably came loose.
From humble beginnings … Mirko would go on to establish himself as a key member of Croatia’s Special Police Forces. Even more impressively … he rose to the apex of the Mixed Martial Arts world.
Cro Cop is widely considered to be one of the most decorated champions the sport has ever seen.
What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s latest role?
That said, my client is looking for a sales professional who shares Mirko’s unparalleled work ethic when it comes to the desire to succeed.
