You know you’re busy man, but i understand your pro boxer.
Your your team is keeping you busy.
So you know just thanks again for coming out thanks for doing this um much appreciated now.
Thank you for having me.
I appreciate um, you guys sharing your platform with me and i even wanted me on here.
Definitely definitely definitely man definitely so um, let’s, let’s just get right into it.
Man like um, so you’re, a pro boxer, now seven seven fights under your belt uh.
You got one coming up next week.
You know five knockouts um.
I couldn’t find too much about your amateur career uh.
Could you tell me a little bit like um? You know how your amateur career started, what kind of like like how long it was yeah yeah lost percentage that kind of stuff so uh.
I started boxing late, i started boxing.
I was around 16.
I had my first amateur fight around 17 and i didn’t have too long of a amateur career, so my amateur background was not too deep.
I had about 30 amateur fights.
I was um 23.
I think 23 and seven as an amateur, oh wow, oh wow, either 24 and six or 23.
So it was one of those two as an amateur and then i went ahead and made the switch.
I had more of a pro style anyway.
Um definitely definitely got a pro style man.
I must say that that that from watching the fights that i’ve seen of you, i must say that your your your ring iq is much much higher than than you know your your professional record man, you you, you fight you fight, like an older fighter.
You know you have that you put that in you and um honestly man and, and you see it and you get better every time you fight every single fight.
I’Ve watched um well so you’re, a self self-proclaimed boxing nerd.
I heard this now now is that what uh is that? What got you in the boxing huge super fan of it uh? No, actually, i never watched boxing until, like probably six seven months before i got into it um the way i started boxing was kind of a little different.
Nobody in my family really box um, i just was uh.
I always liked to fight kind of, and i didn’t like to wrestle i so only like to like go from the shoulders, how you like to call it like go from the shoulders so um when i was getting in trouble in stockton, i got sent away to My dad who’s from uh miami florida, my my parents, were in the military, so my dad’s side is all from uh the miami area, the florida miami florida area and then my mom’s side is all from stockton, california, um wyoming so um in about ninth grade in The ninth grade uh in the summer, going to 10th grade – i i got sent over there because i’m having trouble at home and um, that’s where i started watching, because when i was over there i couldn’t do anything.
I could do anything.
I didn’t know anybody.
I grew up in stockton, my whole life, so um, i didn’t have no friends.
I didn’t know none of my cousins like that, the ones that i did knew that i didn’t know they went they’re a whole different section.
They went to a whole other school district.
So i had to start from scratch and it was um a real.
You know it was a real humbling experience but um.
So while i was there on the on the weekends friday nights had a nice boxing beyond so i’d watch, mma and boxing, and then you know i like i said i only like to go from the shoulder.
So i kind of gravitated towards boxing more and um to come home, one of the um.
The agreements was that i had to play a sport and i used to play football pop warner as a kid for the south, stockton, vikings and uh, but um and i didn’t want to play football anymore.
I was kind of undersized.
I i i didn’t really grow.
I was like probably when i started boxing.
I was like five two i was like five, two hundred and probably like i was thinking i was a little chubby, so like one thirty, five, two one thirty but that’s personal.
My first fight my first uh, my first amateur fight, i fought at one eleven.
I was like wow wow, i won 11.
and um so yeah.
So i came back home.
I started going back to my old high school um and then i was talking about how i went to the box and then i ran into somebody whose dad just started up a gym and that’s why i trained there for, like my first year and a half And then uh from there i got uh linkedin to with my now trainer and that’s uh.
That’S that’s alice yeah.
Did you train your nose? Yeah? Okay, that’s team, nasty, correct team, nasty yeah! That’S the squad! Oh there’s a shirt, there’s a shirt, little promo and they’re and they’re based out of stockton, california right yeah, all out of stockton, um everything’s, yeah everything’s out of cycling right now, um so yeah.
So like i went from um training like my.
My boxing story is crazy for real life.
I went to detail about everything it’d take forever, but um so yeah.
So i i ended up training with uh lionel and then um.
I think i started my amateur off um.
I think one and three sort of managed to grow up one and three and um.
Nobody thought i was gon na.
You know they they’re telling people.
My friends are roasting me they’re, telling me to quit those and stuff, but people knew i could fight, because i used to like um yeah i used to fight and i never was scared to fight like i always had to fight people bigger than me like.
I know at one point i felt like i ran like a little uh like a little uh call.
We call it holy favor like it’s like a friendly fight.
Everybody had the gloves and i beat up like five people back to back, like from all different shapes inside, so they knew i could fight.
I just like and um one, the one person there’s a couple people that really believed in me at the time.
That said, i was talented and stuff like that and um that’s also uh.
His name is billy from tom’s market.
It’S one of those people and then uh.
My homie lj always told me how talented that so never give up why everybody else was like.
Maybe you should think about going to school and blah blah, because i told them since i started boxing.
I started spawning my fourth day and i fell in love with boxing.
So as soon as i did that i was just like this is what i want to do in my life.
This is it, so, would you say those would you say those two guys are your biggest influence influences for getting into boxing is because they had all that faith in you or do you have other influences that got you into boxing? I wouldn’t say they’re the influences that get me into boxing, but they helped motivate me to keep boxing because there was a lot of dark moments.
Like i said, i started amstrad off 103.
I was already 17 uh everybody else that normally starts boxing.
They start probably from four to like 12.
It’S like the prime or four to even 14 is like the the golden ages to start so anything after that is a little bit on the later side.
So i didn’t start too late, but i started kind of late.
So do you feel because you started late, you had to play ketchup a lot or or was it just you? You have that natural talent, where you just picked up everything so quickly, um.
I think it was a bit of both like in the beginning.
I was playing ketchup but then um as i got the right uh trainer in the right and i was gon na talk, um more technical stuff.
I picked it up really fast and then, like now, people can’t tell like, if i was to tell somebody i had 150 amateur fights, and they just seen me fight for the first time and believe it like.
I can get away with this yeah.
Definitely definitely you when you’re fighting your your ring.
Experience does show like you, you show veteran.
You know veteran status at such a young age in the ring already and uh you’re only you’re only going to approve um yeah.
That’S that’s the dope part.
That’S that’s the thing right, you’re only going to improve um so um, who influenced you to start start competing like competing like what was he? What was the you know the push to actually get in the ring and do it um? I think it was just me.
I was i just self-motivated like as soon as i stepped into the gym.
I was like oh yeah, i loved it so like um, i wanted to spar immediately after i spot.
I wanted to compete as soon as i could and um.
I would have been competing.
A little earlier, but it’s hard to find me fights because because the my age and then my size still like that so but i just end up growing, like i hit like like a couple different growth spurts like um.
Well, while i was boxing so like, i just kept getting bigger and it got a little easier to find me fights like now lightweight, like i’ve, been fighting at lightweight since the damages.
I was fighting at 132 and then when they changed the bracket.
I was fighting at 138, so it was divisions always been cracking.
I always had a bunch of hitters in those divisions and at the tournament stuff like that.
So if we hit a tournament, i got ta fight like four or five times so um just went so it’s like um, it was cool.
You know i didn’t have the the support system i had um.
I that i didn’t have the support system that i have now back in those times, so it was kind of hard to hit the tournaments because of the funding and all that stuff.
You know um right, you know under privilege and all that stuff so but um the terms we did here it was, it was cool like it was a great experience and everything like i, i don’t um – have any um ill feelings towards the amateur program or, like My amateur career uh, but i definitely love the pros, a lot more and i get a lot more love.
Oh definitely, definitely well those knockouts man, those knockouts, yeah um.
You know what i want to ask you describe describe the feeling you get when you knock out your opponent um.
Is it feeling like an accomplishment like? Yes, i did it uh.
I don’t know.
I feel like i’m a little weird like um, because i always like when i before i go in there like um, i kind of i kind of already have scenarios played out into my head so when um they come true, it’s like all all right.
We’Re done like the work’s done and i think yeah i’d be like all right now.
I could now get that fine now and then i’m just like and then when they announced that i wanted just like a a real like a flood of dopamine comes through my brain and it’s like real addicting.
So it’s like um yeah.
So after i knocked somebody out like um most of the time i i expect like i know what i’m capable of so i if i don’t get it i’d, probably be like oh well.
You know it is what it is but like when i do get on my okay, it’s supposed to happen type stuff, like i feel like the people um.
I was in there that i stopped.
I should have stopped and the people that managed to survive shouldn’t have so [ Laughter ].
I’M really you know real critical and i have high expectations of myself.
So as of right now, when i get these knockouts, it’s not like um it’s another day for me, because i’ve been um dropping hurting, not stopping people for a long time now.
So it’s right so so that being said, that being said, um what what’s? What’S your? What’S your favorite knockout out of your career so far, which is your favorite one? My favorite like, i guess my favorite knock down because he got back up is in my third pro fight against um.
His last name was rose house just because, just because of the the whole exchange and then it was like a very like thanks to the fight that got me like buzzing around around the town.
So i think that’s my favorite one, but then of course i can’t forget the um, the first round stoppage of uh.
I forgot his name, but i i can’t forget my first round knockout uh with the body shot, so i think it’s out of those two for sure those are my favorite ones, but i think process is a little more favor.
I got that one tattoo is um, so what was it? Was it after that fight that um that you got approached by the tuscano promotions? It was that fight.
They actually got me that fight um, so we were um talking with them.
They’Re gon na put me on a card uh in stockton, after that that was on the before the coronavirus.
So it was like hey, we’ll put them on this card, and then he does get here.
We’Ll put him uh on a stocking cart that we’re gon na throw um, so that was the they get.
I thought it did.
I was fourth, no.
I think i was two and a half times so um then i i put it on them and you know uh.
We were all locked in ready to go for the cycling card.
I sold uh almost eleven dollars for the tickets and then coronavirus account got a council a week before the fight, so oh yeah.
So that was a heartbreaking, but you know everything happens for a reason.
So now um it was a good experience.
You know i got to run around hustling tickets and and then trying to see everything got that experience and then now, like, i feel, like my name – is a lot bigger now so more prepared for everything that comes with fighting at home, um the crowd, everything like The after because i i only expect the victory for myself so after i win um the everybody, because i feel like um.
A lot of people know me and in my city for boxing and the people that you know me they have a lot of.
They show a lot of love, but i know that once i fight out move in front of the home crowd, it’s gon na be like it’s gon na multiply by a lot, so i think i’m more mentally prepared for that before a little more from mature.
For that than i would have been um if it would happen last year, so um right now i’d be a lot more focused on um on the task at hand, because i know before when i was gon na take it.
I was just thinking about like after i had the business.
I can wait 10 minutes, so i can do this like right now, i’m just more focused on getting the job done, so everything happens for a reason right.
I guess i guess coronavirus is the reason why uh down in uh mexico, for all your fights right just to keep you busy yeah.
That’S like the main reason.
So we can stay busy.
It’S it’s a lot easier and he’s a small promoter, so he can’t um.
It’S not really lucrative for him to spend uh all the money putting on the show out here for no fans right right.
So so how so so tuscano promotions is a young company you’re saying right how many years have they been around? I think only like three years, i think they’ve been in the game about three years, maybe four at the moment, but no more than four, but they don’t know they’re, definitely taking care of you, though.
That’S that’s for sure, they’re getting you all these fights, keeping you busy um, how many more, how many more fights do you think you’re gon na have the before the year is done um, so at least three more, so i have this one coming up next uh! Next saturday, and then uh, two more and probably um like around july september and then november december, is like the the goal.
So everything um goes according to plan.
I will at least get four.
Maybe we can sneak in another one for the year and get five for the year.
That would be great.
That’S busy man, that’s busy.
Considering yours, stay sharp, keep improving.
Like you said i can get better every fight, so you know the more fights i get.
The faster i can get better and um just that experience in the ring i get more relaxed like more comfortable um, knowing how to slow the pace down.
I’M learning like a lot just like been working on a lot of things, i’m looking forward to showing everybody what i’ve been working on, uh this camp um, it’s just it’s gon na, be great! I’M just really excited for what the future holds.
For me, i feel like i’m gon na go for so i just so so this camp um.
How long has this campaign to this fight coming up now? I think about, i think, about six weeks once it’s over so about six week camp six weeks, what’s uh, what’s what’s a day in camp, look like for you like uh, you know what what what time do you start? What time do you finish a day? Okay, so um like say so strength condition is over now but uh say in the highlighted camp it’d be um three days, strength, conditioning uh two days from back to back and then it’d be um sparring so say on my day off, because i work full time.
Still too so, oh really, wow yeah, so he’s busy man, i’m telling full-time job, full-time job, professional boxer.
It’S going to be hard to juggle that man, it’s got to be hard yeah.
Is it uh? It’S a challenge, it’s a challenge, but it’s not too hard.
You know i come from, you know i watched uh.
I watched nothing but um a lot of work come from my from my mom, so you know she’s still out she’s still out with me under the table.
So i i it’s not not too much for me but like um, it does keep you busy, but being busy keeps you paid.
So you know what he says: yeah! That’S right! That’S right! That’S right! That’S totally! Right! If i not was bored money so um so say on my day off i get up, i go to stream conditioning.
I got to check condition and go for a jog after my jog um, i train at about 6 or 7 pm and then work on drills on the straight condition.
Today’S and then the days that i’m not.
We normally do a lot of drills anyway and then the sparring days, then it’s just like normal at work.
So then, after work um, i go go travel to the best part depending on where we got ta go.
If it’s gon na be at our gym too bad, but sometimes we got ta go to go to sacramento, go to gilbert, go wherever and um go.
There come back shower all that stuff.
So it’s not stop crying man.
This is uh! That’S what like you know.
My family, they all understand everybody supports me.
They know they know if they they it’s nice, that they invite me, but they know i’m gon na say i can’t right right right right, but you know that’s that’s what you understand.
Man, everybody uh, everybody! All my love for support me: they all they all know what uh, what i do for that, i’m not! I don’t have time like being this busy.
I don’t have time to get in trouble, so you know that’s it.
That’S the best part.
So, who are some of the uh, who are some of the role models that you look up to uh, andre ward, is definitely one of my first role models like once.
I start looking at um boxing, like once i once i got into boxing i started looking at.
I started googling great fighters and stuff like that and uh now past and then marvin hackler was the first fighter that i ever watched and started to study and then oh marvin hegler.
Yes, definitely yeah.
You know sad what happened: yeah yeah that was heartbreaking and and then i seen how his personality was, how he carried himself with accolades and he’s from california as well.
So he became um, an idol of mine and i loved how he carried himself so uh.
He influenced me to be a better person, um, a smarter person outside the ring with as far as not drinking not smoking, not putting any um toxins in your body and stuff like that, because i i i had a um.
I was a bad kid, so you know i was doing stuff like that at like 11, 20 years old, so um when i seen that – and i was kind of i wasn’t doing it at the time, but i do it every once in a while.
Then i seen that so that’s why i stopped doing it completely and um so that you’re, the big motivation to me like i’m, i have some of his merchandise uh so like i can’t wait to for him to see me fight.
I’Ve met him before at a meet and greet, and i met us.
I met virgil.
I supported that first hundred gym in front of him so like that, but i haven’t got to perform in front of andre yet and i look for it.
So i can talk to him.
He probably doesn’t remember me, but just to talk to him again and be like yeah.
When i see him i took this and that and there you go but uh so yeah.
So that was my idol.
He uh kept me out of trouble.
Kept me smart.
I loved how he carried himself made me want to carry myself in a similar manner and not just be a real loud obnoxious myself, i’m really not that type person anyway um but yeah.
So i had alongside a boxing mile outside the box who was my trainer, he uh.
He also helped mold me mentally and become a stronger uh mentally strong, individual individual, a better person before i was with lionel.
I had a different mentality um, so he helped make me a better person and that’s and we both grew together because uh in the past, like we’ve, been probably around each other about six years, seven years, almost six and a half years, maybe and we’ve all we’ve – Both gotten better mentally everything like the way to carry ourselves everything so um, it’s just really dope.
So i got a lot of positive people with moscono everybody like a lot of positive people around me, and i got to keep these same positive people around me.
I watch you um, who i share my energy with, because i don’t have too much time to too much time right.
Definitely, you have the rumor of being a very, very humble, energetic so in outside of the ring, and you know what you got.
You got a reputation to be a fierce, smart, heavy-handed, fast, skilled fighter in the ring, and you know what honestly is that’s a recipe for a champion man and i believe i believe, we’re going to see a belt on you.
You know we just got it.
We just got to get you in front of the right people fighting the right people and uh going from there really right, yeah, but um.
You know that they give me the right fights that builds me up real nice um.
I think i’m ranked like 35 or 36 in the u.
s and then like 190 192 in the world yeah already.
So it’s like i’m real happy about that and um yeah.
It’S just about how i carry myself outside the ring.
I’M naturally a real mean person.
So like it’s not hard all this, like all this growth, all this effort, like it’s, been a lot of me working on myself and i can just and i get to let everything out in there in the ring and leave it there right and then it keeps You keeps you more calm makes you able to deal with stuff a little easier like that’s.
Why i’m always in the gym, because you can ask people that know me once i’m out of it once i’m like once i take my little my little time off after the fight to arrest and stuff, like that, after a couple days, i get a little cranky Or like, if i haven’t been sparring for let’s say i don’t start for a month, we’ll work on technique and we’re not spawning right now we don’t [, __ ], know we’re not gon na we’re gon na support too much.
But i’m saying i haven’t supported a month.
I started getting more, i’m getting more angry get agitated, so it definitely keeps me keeps me sane, so i don’t have to.
I don’t have to snap on people outside during having been into.
I definitely don’t want those problems at all.
No, no! No! No! No! You know i understand what you’re talking about like i train, i train muay thai boxing jiu jitsu and you know what, like the whole street thing, you don’t want to hit somebody because you’re afraid of the damage that you can do you know, and then these are My money makers, i can’t be doing nothing, no, you! You don’t want you, don’t want it, you don’t want to break the money makers.
You can’t break this um.
What what do you want to be? What do you want to be remembered for when you like? Hang it up and you leave the spirit of boxing and everything um.
I always say this.
I always say this and i say when i’m done.
I want to be a boxing legend.
I want to be a legend.
I want to be known as one of the best to ever.
Do it and that’s that’s my goal, but i also want to be known for, as as a great person.
My ultimate goal is to be known as a great, a great person and great father.
Great uncle all that, but um, i also want to be a legend from boxing because there’s a lot of boxing legends that are just shitty people i don’t want to be.
I don’t want to be one of those people, you know.
So you know what you just answered.
My next question too.
I was going to ask you: would you rather be feared or loved, but you’d rather be loved right? No i’d rather be feared.
You want to be feared.
I’D rather be feared, i’m telling you i’m a mean person, man, i can be nice because love is an emotion that can uh cause people um that can get you hurt.
You know uh it’s great to be loved.
I feel like being loved is amazing, but when you’re feared or somebody fears, you they’re less likely to do something to you than if they love you, because people will probably they love all the time they feel like they can get away with it.
But if they fear you they’re, like i probably can’t get away with i’m just i’m gon na be cool, so you know it’s safer to be feared than it is to be loved, but it definitely feel better to be loved and fear.
You know what it’s true, it’s true, it’s true, you can’t argue with it.
That’S true um! So what do you? What are your short-term goals right now? You have any short-term goals that you want to try to accomplish before the year’s end.
My short-term goals is just um is to win this next fight and then stay healthy and keep myself as healthy as possible, say on the right track out of trouble.
Um and everything else is going to come.
So just i take everything one fight at a time.
I focus in my lock in i make sure i’m doing everything right as much as i can and um.
I know with that i’ll i’ll be fine, so right now i just want to get through my next opponent and and just be um, be as good as possible after the fight and just look as good as i can and just perform the the best of my Ability come out with that victory and go from there smoking.
Like a true champion.
I hope you like it.
I love it.
I love it you.
What do you see yourself, um, publishing and say five years in five years yeah i see myself being um a world champion already uh, maybe in five years, maybe even two division – world champ uh by that time, that’d be that’d, be awesome.
I see myself being a champion in three years and then you know after you get that it’ll be just move up and get another belt, so just keep taking it one by one, i’m a big 135 pounder.
So definitely definitely once i get the belt uh 140 is probably going to call me everybody’s going to be probably all the top dogs at 135 um and three is probably gon na be at 140.
, so the big fights are gon na, be there so right, like You you, you kind of you hover in that, like really, you know high-class tough division, where there’s a lot of talent a lot of fighters.
You know a lot of greats have been there and uh yeah.
It’S a hard division to be in what? What do you think separates you from the other guys in your division? Right now you know it’s crazy.
I i don’t really pay attention to that guys by the vision.
I just focus on what i got to do but um.
I know i’m extremely talented and i don’t i don’t know um and even if they are talented, i work really hard like.
I got a lot to to prove to myself.
It’S not really about everybody else, but i just the goals that i have uh.
I know what it’s going to take to accomplish them and i don’t know where their brains at, but i know reminds that so i feel like with that alone.
I have that edge and then i got a lot of good people around me.
I don’t do a lot of things that other people do um.
I love you know it’s great to have attention, but i don’t seek.
I don’t do things to um to be loud, so i just like to i just like to work, and i love what i do so if they are the same way, then let’s get a crack and that’s gon na be awesome but um.
I know a lot of people aren’t like that.
A lot of people do it for the wrong reasons, but so i feel like that can separate me from uh from whoever, but, like i said, i really don’t pay attention to anybody that i’m not really fighting or anybody that i don’t have love for.
That’S not part of my team or that i want to see succeed, and even then i pay attention to them as much as i uh as little as really as in all honesty, as much as i can, which is very little.
I just have to i’m just focused on myself, staying in my own lane and getting the work done so you you set really high goals and expectations for yourself.
Obviously, you know the best for yourself um out of all the fights that you’ve had.
What? What do you think? What do you think is the worst performance that you did uh well had and and how? How did you? How did you go about fixing that um? I think my worst performance is in my fourth pro fight and then i just made sure i never did uh what i did in that preparation for that again so and even then like uh, that’s really not even that bad performance, but i just didn’t like it.
I don’t like watching it but um.
I watched it when i got ta remind myself, that’s why i can’t be um playing around so um [ Laughter, ]! Oh, that’s awesome! That’S awesome! Man uh! So you do.
Do you do you study? Do you study the guys that you’re gon na fight before you fight them, like you, watch a lot of their tapes or do you just you just go in there and stick to your game plan? Or do you change your game plan for each opponent, um? It’S! It’S a little bit of both like i, i i watched if i can’t find the videos of them or tape with them me and my coach watch them.
I watched them probably one time, one or two times uh before you know fight week and then, like the day before, i watch them a lot, but my coach watches them and he comes up with the game plan and the game plan is pretty much the same.
For everybody right now and just like kind of stay behind the jab and do me and um and just do what i do best and and it’s just been working uh.
There hasn’t been too many um things that any adjustments that we need to make we can make in the fight, because i don’t know how to we work on everything in camp.
We will work on how to do everything boxing compression fighting.
I know i really know how to do everything but um.
You definitely do man, honestly you’re you’re, a young fighter, and i must say that i haven’t seen too many young fighters that are able to use the job like you do you you really.
You really know how to use it and use it to your your capability and and it’s one of your strengths and you use it so well to set up your other shots.
Man, it’s it’s.
It’S brought you so much success already and um.
You know like you’ve, got you’ve got heavy hands man for a small guy, like you hit like a truck man, and when i watch you put these guys down man, it makes me hurt sometimes on the inside.
What’S up what what’s your favorite punch man? What’S? What’S your favorite thing you like to hit somebody with um, whatever is open, my favorite punch to be honest because it’s like uh, it comes natural, just easy to use easy to control everything’s like testing everything out, but um yeah, the jab and like i can throw Any punch in so whatever i like to whatever working good.
At times my favorite thing to grow, but yeah i’ve been told.
I hit like like a 160 pounder before from sparring 160 pounder.
So that’s the price! That’S why it’s like um! I see people’s uh people that don’t know me or when i first you know they were supporting them or fight them.
When i hit them, then uh, i see everything kind of changed for them, so like it’s hard, they’re, not they’re, not expecting they’re not expecting to have.
I look at everything they do good against that person and then i uh i just be able to look out for that, but i in my mind i know they probably won’t do that with me just because of the of that factor.
Just the power perfect because you get away a little bit more when you hit hard right.
So if you, okay, if you can fight anybody living or dead tomorrow, no, i think it’s just you just you’re just focused focus on the employment focus on the next fight focus, yeah, yeah yeah.
I can’t so so is it do you find? Do you find it hard to balance a full-time job and do this boxing thing um? No not really because boxing comes first, so whatever job i have, they understand that and if they don’t get another one, so it’s kind of like honestly, honestly, i i think i think it’s not too long before we actually see you in in the spotlight in these Big fights and to the point where you’re not even gon na, have to have that job man.
I see it coming in your future.
