What do you love about boxing? How did you get into training? What are you fighting for?
Boxing is a beautiful sport with a lot of discipline and passion. Not everyone likes to get hit, but we are the crazy people that do it and love it. I am from a boxing family, starting with my grandfather who was a pro-boxer in Mexico, followed by my Dad who was also a pro-boxer, to my cousins who are well known in Mexico, Michel Rosales and Guadalupe Bronco Rosales, who was ranked 3rd in the World in 2009. My brother is a professional boxer as well, my uncle is a professional boxing trainer, so I had no choice. I started training at the age of six, and competed until I was twelve in Mexico. When I moved to the US, I stopped competing. I became a trainer at age seventeen, and I have trained amateur and pro fighters, as well as fitness boxing.
