Rio Grande Boxing. My boy Porf tunes up the hands and my boy Lucas tunes up the body. Between them I am always ready to go. Mentally and physically.
2. What motivated you to become a fighter?
Being a big fan of MMA and the love of competition.
3. What is your nickname?
I don’t know Batman seems pretty fitting though. Let’s go with that. Batman.
4. Knock’em out or Chokem’ out?
Knock ‘em out.
5. How do you balance fighting with the rest of your life? family, work, spirituality…
It’s definitely not easy. I have 2 kids and a great woman and it’s hard knowing you wanna spend all the time in the world with them but half of your day is spent at work punching the clock the other half at the gym punching the bag. People think being a fighter is acting a fool and getting paid but it’s not. Not even close.
6. What’s in your ipod when you are training for a fight?
Ozzy Osbourne, Linkin Park to name a few and can’t forget about the local talent Lost Point etc.
7. What is your favorite non fight related pass time?
Coaching the youth. I spend a lot of my time with the youngsters coaching everything from wrestling to football pushing them to make something of themselves and can’t forget about camping, fishing and hiking come on now I am a Colorado boy!
8. Who is your inspiration?
Again the youth. I come from a small community so I always try to push a percentage of what I make their way. So if I win that’s that many more jerseys, helmets etc. Also, I love watching them compete. Pushing them knowing they are giving it 100 percent. When i train I think about how hard they work and it drives me to push a little bit harder.
Haha come on now you know I’M Hungry lol but I like to eat pasta and salad the night before the fight nice and light. After the fight, a burger and a beer!
10. What’s the best advice you can give your next opponent?
Let’s do it! I am not about all the disrespectful talk and nonsense when it comes to the fight, win or lose, I just want to put on a show and make it count.
