What's the hardest and easiest thing about boxing?

The easiest part of boxing is knowing what you have to do. The hardest part is actually doing it.

Tell us more about your family and roots.

I'm from the suburbs of Chicago, born and raised. I grew up playing basketball, football, and baseball, but never thought I'd get into boxing. My favorite color is green and I love videogames. When I grow up, I want to be an entrepreneur.

Why Did you Start Boxing?

My buddy got me to join sophomore year because he insisted that I would like it. He was right.

What's your favorite thing about boxing?

My favorite thing about boxing is the community of it. It's a pretty niche sport, so the people you find in it are pretty like-minded. I love coming to practice and getting a great workout in with all the friends I've made through it.
