She was drawn to the sport very quickly, and before she realized she was training 5 days a week. A few months into boxing, she had her first fight in Rimouski, QC where she won by a second round stoppage. According to Kate, it was an incredible experience, which got her thinking about her next fight before that nigh was even over.

He brought them to the living room and when his stepdad saw him, he proposed to Esteban to do pads to show him how it worked and to have fun as he had no idea what boxing was.

He loves the boxing training, the force, agility, vision, cardio, endurance and speed, all aspects that allow him to become better as an athlete and as an individual.
