This love story started when Dave contacted Irina, a Montréal journalist, to write an article about his professional career as a fighter in Myanmar. She took the assignment, but their connection didn’t end there. They kept in touch and she agreed to meet him in Thailand for a three-week vacation, and then she never came back.
Dave is a martial arts superstar and the current World Champion in Lethwei, also known as Burmese Bareknuckle boxing, the most brutal sport in the world. Irina moved to Canada with her family when she was 12 from Russia, and started modelling at the age of 15. Currently, Irina has her own blog, but her main focus is their marriage and supporting Dave in his career.
This couple is known for epic arguments but have deep love for each other and are inseparable. They never had one night apart since they met. They picked up their lives to live in a completely foreign place, showing they are strong and adaptable. They know there is nothing they can’t do as long as they are together.
