When I was a teenager, boxing was my first love.
I loved it.
I thought it was the most exciting sport to watch, and it was all the rage in my hometown.
So, when I joined the boxing community, it was a dream come true.
Boxing was on the horizon.
It was the future.
So when the sport was taken away from me, I knew I had to get back in.
The sport of mixed martial arts, or MMA, was one of the sport’s big draws.
The most popular martial art in the world, it has been used in over 60 countries, and has its own sports leagues in several countries.
In my mind, it is a perfect sport to get in.
And I’ve been hooked ever since.
I had my first match, against a fellow boxer at a local gym in the United States.
I was 18 years old.
The fight lasted for five rounds, and was one that I will never forget.
I remember thinking, “This is going to be the best thing ever.”
It was a thrill.
I won the match, and I became the first boxer in the history of boxing to earn the title of World Light Heavyweight Champion.
That is, I earned that title by defeating a man who had previously only been considered a minor professional boxer.
I have been fighting since then, and my name is Anthony “The Mauler” Munoz.
I am now 31 years old, and the sport has helped me to become one of America’s most successful and sought after boxers.
I want to thank everyone who has supported me over the years.
