When did you start boxing and why?: At 14, I use to run track then I got sick and I was hospitalized with pneumonia.  I was very weak, I lost a lot of weight and I couldn’t do much. My father took me to the boxing gym he used to train to get conditioning so I could go back to do track stronger, instead I fell in love with boxing and it became a big part of my life.
