Petru got involved in boxing when he was 19 years old. He had no intention of becoming boxing competitor but as soon as he realized how good he was, he decided to start competing.
When he first met with coach Vlad Goldstein, they had an instant spark of chemistry. Before boxing, he practiced judo for eight years but his love for the sport faded away. As far as his feelings towards boxing, he admits to not having any emotions in the ring. Petru says he’s never been part of a boring boxing match, except when his opponent decides to run instead of box.
