My message I want to give to everyone today is Don’t give up even when things don’t look good from the start a true champion can make adjustments, all credit goes to my first opponent he fought well this is not to discredit him he earned his victory, I made weight easy that wasn’t the problem we in’s were supposed to be at a specific time it happened much later then we expected we never got our bout sheet so I stood ready to fight at any moment but were told last minute later on we’d be fighting almost last ,no food in my system from the morning all the way till around 6 pm when I fought , didn’t get to warm up with my trainer they had him waiting for a bout sheet that wasn’t ever given to him he was told we’re on next right before my bout , my boxing gloves were changed three times that night the last time gloves were handed to me from a regular person not associated with USA boxing while I was already in the ring , I also had to go in and use my stablemates head gear who fights at 160 pounds the head gear definitely didn’t fit me and my coach asked how is it I said fine knowing from the start it didn’t fit and I couldn’t see we even had it on the last strap it would either go to low and be over my eyes or be to high to the point where it was almost falling off .. but knowing all of this getting in there malnourished and not able to see properly I kept believing God and myself. I also kept reminding myself why I’m pursuing what I love to do and that’s to pass a message which is no matter what always stay positive , keep your composure no matter what’s going on around you a true champion can always adapt and make changes on the fly keep going don’t give up ! My changes that I made on the fly was to get mobile I didn’t have the energy to do much offense so I let my defense and foot work handle the rest I know we didn’t win the fight but we didn’t give up or get hurt physically or mentally thank God ! so whatever you’re going through keep fighting !!
