What is your first boxing memory?
My first boxing memory is the first time a had a boxing fight just the
feeling of getting my hands raped up I was so nervous but it was like this
was what I had to do. I was like in a dream the way I felt putting my gloves
on and walking to the ring. Even when the bell rang and the fight started it
was just like I was in heaven it felt so right. Well that fight didn't last
that long it was over in like 1 minute in the first round I knocked the guy
out. But that was my place in life I found. When they held my hand up in the
ring I was waiting to wake up and really have to go to the fight but the
dream never ended. That was my first memory in boxing.
SA: What or who do you credit your success to?
To my mom who brought me on to this earth and telling me you can do whatever
you want to do max. To my wife who always stays on my back about 'you are
not working hard enough' when I thought I just killed myself. When the fight
is over every one tell me how good I looked and my wife looks at me and
tells me 3 or 4 things I could have done better and to God without him I
would not have the strength to do any thing
