how are things going with you?
Everything is great. I am getting ready for my next fight on Feb. 5th
in Austin, TX
your last fight against Sarka Stoklaskova go as you had expected?
The fight was tough and I learned a lot from the
experience. I am very happy about the victory although she brought strength
that I didn't expect.
SA: Who would you like to fight next?
I don't have anyone in particular that I am looking at right now, but I
believe 2009 is going to be a great year for my boxing career. I hope to
have a shot at a title.
SA: When do
you expect your next fight to be?
February 5th 2009
your short term goals?
Fight at least 4-6 times in 2009 and stay undefeated and be the next
middleweight world champ
your training look like?
My training is very intense. My trainer Ann Wolfe, who is an 8 time world
champ is an amazing trainer. I run every single day 4 miles, we box everyday
for 2-3 hours and also do strength and conditioning for another few hours. I
am in the best shape of my life right now.
are in between fights do you stay in the gym?
I always stay in shape. I train everyday. My training differs when I am in
boxing camp. I lift a lot of weights in the off season and then during the
boxing camp I don’t lift weights but do lots of boxing drills
you pretty much eat whatever you want?
No, I have a very strict diet. I only eat clean. Lots of fruit, veggies,
chicken, eggs, almonds, organic foods, and lots of protein. I never eat out
and watch everything that is put in my body.
What is your inspiration?
My trainer, Ann Wolfe is my inspiration. She is the
best and I really am lucky to know her and train with her. She is someone
EVERYBODY can learn from.
How did you
get your nickname “The Killer”?
My promoter in Austin gave me that name. I don’t feel
like I am a Killer. Yes I go into a fight to Kill, but being a Killer is
not my instinct. I am looking for a different nickname. You have any ideas…
Ask your fans…
SA: What or
who do you credit your success to?
I credit my success to me. I am a very hard worker and especially in boxing
you are in the ring all alone. It is you and only you. I owe a lot of my
skills to Ann, again, an amazing trainer.
can we expect from you near the future?
I am looking to fight a lot this year and build my fan
base around the world. I want people to know who I am and how serious I am
about becoming a world champion.
SA: Do you
have anything you would like to tell boxing fans?
I want people to know that I am a real fighter and I love the sport of
boxing. I have learned a lot about myself and life because of this sport.
I want people to know that if you put your mind and heart in something, you
CAN achieve it. I want to thank all my fans and want people to know that if
anyone wants to contact me or ask me anything about boxing or myself, go to
my website and contact me directly.
