Boostayre Nefarios Explains Why He Changed His Name
Posted by Larry Csonka on 03.27.2014

- Boostayre Nefarios recently spoke about why he changed his name for his fighting career. Here are the highlights…

On Changing His Name From Marvin Eastman Jr: "I became who I am now because I didn't want to be the person who was just using his dad. I'm my own fighter; my dad's his own fighter. I want to utilize my skillset and not take what he did in his career and use it for mine. "He has got four world titles. I'm trying to build myself as a fighter. I didn't want to be that person. No offense to anyone else, but I didn't want people to say, ‘Oh, he's just Randy Couture's son.' Kind of like that, so that's kind of where I was."

On Issues With His Father Over The Years: "It's like having a Bugatti with the potential to do 255 miles per hoour, but you have an impaired driver who's drunk," Nefarios said. "The car has the potential to do that, but the actual driver doesn't have the potential to control the car. So that's kind of what it was. My manager didn't really know how to fine-tune the skillset, so I went back and started sharpening the skills I have. At the end of the day that's my father and I should be able to talk to my dad, especially when it comes to personal stuff," Nefarios said. "So me and him made a consensus and got on the same page, and it's been smooth rolling from there. I'm glad to say we're on the same page now. Do I think it was supposed to be this way? I think it was, because I feel like I need my father this time."

On Having His Father Back In His Corner: "We are on the same page now, and he's there in the most critical time right now, and this is when I need him the most," Nefarios said. "I've went through my ups and downs. When it comes to me stepping in the cage on the 29th, my brain isn't going to be anywhere else but in the fight. I feel like I'm in the best place I can possible be right now."
