Sarina asked him how he knew he wanted to pursue a career in boxing at such a young age.

He replied, "From such a young age, I've had this passion for whatever I do to just do it to the max."

"That's what I really wanted to do with boxing, to just bring that to the highest level of competition since I've been doing it since I was like 4 or 5 years old."
