    10 hours of sparring in four years? Surely you mean four months?

    Been boxing since 2010 but only had three bouts so far (2-1). This was due to the fact that I was still in high school and (a) I had loads of exams, (b) my parents were worried about my safety and (c) I liked partying more back then.

    This year should be a good year though since I'm in university now. My coach is planning three to four fights for me and I should be going into the state comps.

    I started competing in 2012 and I won 2 fights. Would have had 3 but the third didn't get matched. =/

    Started later than I would have liked, and though I've had too many smokers to remember, I only ever had one sanctioned fight (UD win). Put all my energy into being a trainer now.

    Skrib: Where do you fight out of and what weight class? How long have you been open?

    I have zero amateur experience despite learning and training (on and off) for the last 8 years or so. But I have sparred amateurs and pros who have won golden gloves and what not. I'm the bad luck kid always something in my way. Hope to change that when I move and become a permanent member of Tocco's.

    It's sometimes fun being what I call a "sleeper" but I hope to smash through 10 or more amateur fights then turn pro. I hate not having any amateur fights, because fights give you credibility. Something to showcase my knowledge and all my hard work. One thing I do have is boxing lineage something I'm very proud of. I am a blue belt in bjj and studied martial arts my entire life I treat boxing like that.

    It's a long list, some names I don't know so I can't give them there proper credit but -
    Cuban Boxing/American/Carribean Boxing > A combination of talent such as Bunny Grant, Eddie Futch, George Benton, Panama Lewis > Mike McCallum & Merqui Sosa > Luis Monda > Me.

    Now I have learn a few things from other trainers and fighters along the way but the person who lay out the foundation and made me re-learn everything. Change my entire philosophy on fighting is Luis Monda. He's been helping me since about 2007/2008 when I was training for MMA.

    This might sound stupid, but I try not to have people record sparring sessions or fights. I think it gives my opponent something to study.
