BIOGRAPHY

Growing up, boxing is a sport that Tania had an interest in and it’s only in 2016 that she finally enrolled in a boxing club. She grew up being inspired by former World Heavyweight Champion, Mike Tyson. She found his life story interesting and found a liking to Tyson’s peek-a-boo style, which was instilled in him by his mentor and trainer, Cus D’Amato.

 

Having an older brother, she would enjoy play-fighting with him as a child, which led to her interest in boxing. She also played basketball growing up. Her brother encouraged her to continue playing basketball, while at school, so she could get a scholarship and be accepted into university. She is currently studying Physiotherapy and will be graduating soon.

 

Her goals in boxing are to one day represent team Canada in the Olympics and compete professionally.
