[COVID-19 UPDATE] Fight To End Cancer 2020

Filed Under: 2019 Fighters, Bout 3

Initially, my fight was dedicated to my mom. But she’s a really tough lady – one of a kind, and thank God, she was able to fight Cancer and kick it’s ass. She’s doing great today. Healthy and strong.

But up until recently, I met someone who’s just as strong as my mom, who experienced this battle at a different level. Her name is Mara. She lost her husband at a very young age… the age I will be, when I step into the ring. They were a beautiful family. But when I found out that he lost his life to this terrible disease, I decided to FIGHT for him….my fight will be dedicated to you Sergio.

I knew him only with the occasional hello. But I feel his presence… his strength…his love…the fight he had in him. Mara, who was with him through this battle, told me he was a loving father and husband and great friend to all that knew him. Even in his last days, he brought so much joy and laughter to all. Remaining positive to his last day. It really saddens and angers me that her family had to endure this pain and for Sergio to have gone through so much… he fought to the end. I’m taking this fight over for Sergio.

“It ain’t how hard you can hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done.” These words Sergio truly believed and lived by….

On June 1st, 2019, my opponent will be Cancer.

So please help me fight this battle for Sergio!!
