BIOGRAPHY

Da Silva started her athletic career in soccer. She was 10 years old when she signed up for soccer practice and by age 12, she was an elite player. She played soccer for a decade and had intentions of making the national Olympic team. Unfortunately, this was not possible due to some injuries. She wanted to change sports and signed up for a cardio-boxing class in her university. She immediately grew a liking for it, because it demanded a high level of concentration. Randomly, a boxing trainer walked into the store where she was working at the time to shop and asked her if she ever considered trying competitive boxing. At first, Myriam was hesitant. After two weeks of contemplating, she signed up at a boxing club and six months later, she made her in-ring debut.

 

In the beginning, boxing attracted her because of its intensity, which is something her ego needs. Also, her mother was always proud of women who accomplished unexpected things. In a newspaper, they found her current boxing coach, Danielle Bouchard, which they found to be a role model. She became serious about boxing but did not tell her parents in the beginning. She told her parents after her first Silver Gloves competition. Her love for boxing was growing at a rapid pace as aspects such as concentration, physical performance, tactics, and techniques made her want to improve. For Myriam, boxing is not a violent sport. It’s about discipline and that is what she instills to the young boxers.

 

Da Silva sees herself becoming an elite boxer and her dream is to compete in the Olympics. In addition to her boxing ambitions, she also has a Bachelor’s degree in school and social adaptation from UQAM.

Tammara Thibeault was only 10 years old when she started boxing. Originally, it was an activity that her older brother and father were doing together for fun, but eventually, she ended up going with them on a regular basis. When her brother quit the sport, she stuck to it and never looked back since! At first, she wanted to try boxing because her father is her greatest source of inspiration and she wanted to be just like him. Over the years, she developed a true passion for the sport. She wasn’t very good at other sport and for once, she was told she had potential for her chosen combat sport, which motivated her to become the best she could be.

For a long time, the boxing club was the only place where she felt comfortable enough to truly be herself, hence helping her build her confidence while growing up.

BIOGRAPHY

Although Natali has always had an interest in martial arts, she did not have the opportunity to start her training until she was 21 years old. She practiced several martial arts in her twenties, including jiu-jitsu, kickboxing, and worked herself up to a black belt in uechiryu karate. She joined a boxing club in her town and had her first bout three short months later. After moving to Halifax in 2016, she decided to focus on boxing training only. She admits it was a hard choice to make but is reassured it was the correct one.

 

Fagan had a rough childhood and as she grew older, she became closed off from society. She liked martial arts because it gave her the opportunity to express herself physically in a constructive way. The sport of boxing gave her confidence and she grew stronger both physically and mentally. The boxing community helped her be more involved in society and resolve her personal issues. She finds that boxing is just as much about confronting yourself as it is about facing an opponent. It is about your own mental strength and weakness, and it forces one to become stronger in different areas in one’s life.

 

She does not plan too far ahead in the future as she finds life to be very unpredictable. She is hoping that her future involves boxing in some capacity.

 

In addition to her boxing career, Natali has a bachelor’s degree in Science in Biology and a Graduate degree in Ocean Technology. She obtained her degrees while she was training and competing in boxing.

BIOGRAPHY

Justin Parina was introduced to boxing at the age of seven by his older brother who was an amateur boxer. His brother would bring him to the boxing gym occasionally. He only took his training seriously once he turned 15 years old. After being part of the junior high school football team, he was looking for another sport to engage himself into. Since boxing was a sport that he had been practicing occasionally, he decided to start training seriously and progress in it, and then decided to sign up for boxing classes with the intention of competing. In the beginning, it was hard for him to train because he was the only teenager at the club and everyone else was adults. He found the training rigorous and sparring hard because his training partners were considerably heavier than him. He even considered quitting but did not and pushed through as he did not want to quit on himself. Overall, as he experienced hardship, Justin Parina was progressing faster than the other boxers in his gym. After only six months of training, he had his first bout and finished with a 2nd round TKO
He loves the idea of boxing being an individual sport. In his opinion, boxing is very challenging, physically but especially mentally. The boxer is his own adversary as he or she determines if you will succeed or fail. Also, boxing instilled certain values and attributes that some of his peers don’t possess. As a National athlete, he doesn’t participate in some activities as before compared to his peers. Lately, with all the international tournaments he has competed, he is realizing that the sport is becoming bigger than him because he is no longer just representing himself but now also a country and those who look up to him.
His father is his biggest inspiration because he provides for his family and loved ones outside the country while working two full-time jobs.
What he enjoys most about being a part of the boxing National Team and fighting internationally is having the opportunity to travel to various countries and experience different cultures around the world that is united by sports. He is proud to represent Canada with the utmost pride.
Justin has big goals in mind for the future. His objectives are to earn a spot on the podium at the 2019 AIBA World Championships in Russia and at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. In the next 5 to 10 years, he envisions himself having completed his education, being employed with a good salary so he can provide for his loved ones, and to inspire others. He says he will still be as obsessed over improving them as he is now.
In addition to boxing, Justin is perusing to get a College degree in Nursing in September 2019 and then hopefully his Bachelor degree.

He follows the greats that came before him such as Floyd Mayweather, Sugar Ray, Mike Tyson, Pernell Weatker, and the list goes on. Reading these’s fighters stories, he learned that boxing is known as a poor man’s sport, and coming from Africa not having anything made him want to work hard to get something for his family and himself. The thing that he loves most about boxing is working hard and seeing his work paying off.
After basketball, he ended up in a boxing gym and on the first day that he did sparring, it was against an opponent who had more experience than him. The coach then came up to him to tell him he was a natural and since that day, he never stopped training and striving to become the best.
Beside his career as an athlete, Phillip graduated High School and is now planning on going to College. In the next 5-10 years, Phillip hopes to be a World Champion in three different weight classes and to be financially stable in order to to help kids and families of his country. He also wishes to pass down his knowledge to these children and to motivate them.

BIOGRAPHY

Spencer Wilcox comes from a family of boxers. He practically grew up with a pair of gloves on his hands; His father runs a boxing gym so it is a family tradition. He started training at the young age of four and was training two days per week until the age of 8, after which  his training became more intense and had boxing practice 5 or 6 days a week.
From an early age, he knew he had talent and he is confident that one day he will be world champion. He was initially interested in t he sport because he grew up watching all of his brothers and their friends competing, which made him want to do the same and make it further than any of them had.
The part that he loves the most about the sport is the feeling of victory after winning a tournament. In comparison to team sports where victories are a team effort, you are the only reason for success when winning a boxing tournament and there is no greater feeling than knowing that you are #1 in your category.
Within the next five to 10 years, Spencer wants to become an Olympian, compete at a few editions of the World championships, Pan American Games and all other major international competitions in the hopes to bring home Gold and make my country proud. Beside boxing, Spencer graduated from high school in 2018 and is currently enrolled in Civil Engineering at Mohawk College.

BIOGRAPHY

As a young man, Denis was a member of the basketball team at his CEGEP. Once he graduated from Cegep in May 2016, he made the decision to embark in the world of boxing. His mother was not surprised because as a kid, Denis used to throw punches in the air and for some unexplained reason, he was always attracted to boxing. Before getting started, Denis had the chance to do a sparring session with Montreal pro-boxer, Steven Butler. Butler told him that with practice, he had what it takes to become a good boxer. It was after this session of sparring with Steven Butler, that Denis said to himself “Let’s go, I’m getting into boxing!”

Within five years, Nickenson sees himself as a professional boxer and to be recognized worldwide. In 10 years, he predicts he will be world champion. But before that, he will like to become a father of a beautiful girl. He wants to enjoy and exploit his boxing career to the fullest. One of his favorite quotes is that of Edgar Morin “By sacrificing essentials to urgency, we end up forgetting the urgency of the essential.”

 

Besides his career in boxing, Denis studied police technique in Ottawa in 2011 but since Ontario’s civil Code is different from that of Quebec, he studied crime Intervention in 2012 at Ahuntsic.

Triston Brookes started boxing when he was 18 years old. Prior to boxing, he was a long jump champion in High School, but was forced to find another sport to compete because his school didn’t want him to represent them at competitions.

Also, as a skinny kid, he didn’t quite fit in other sports before but he knew he would fit in boxing due to the weight class system. 

 

Triston began as a recreational member, but within a year, he became a competitive member and stepped on the podium at his first competition, the Bronze Gloves. Through the encouragements of his Coach Tony Wallace, he started believing in himself. Winning the Canadian championships in 2017 was a turning point and Triston took the opportunity to centralize with the National Team in order to improve his craft. In the future, he wishes to become a World Champion and win a medal at the Olympic Games.

 

Beside his career as an athlete, Triston also attended school at Sheridan College in Advertising and Marketing, and in the long run, he would like to go back to school to pursue his education in Kinesiology.
