I started boxing in 2016 and one (1) year into training I found that I wanted my training to mean something; to have a purpose.
I was training six (6) days a week, eating clean and rarely drinking, I was living and breathing boxing (nothing has changed), which is what decided me to want to have my first fight!
Looking back, I was pretty ‘ballsy’ to have taken the fight, my opponent had five (5) fights under her belt (compared to my none!) and she was a very skilful boxer, very smooth and slick.
I won my first fight, there was no way I was giving up without a FIGHT and that I did; my heart and desire to win is what got me the win! And this was the beginning of my boxing journey, and what a great beginning it was!
