It’s the last boxing event of the amateur season and we are all hanging out in a hotel resting and staying warm.
It’s kinda nice to have nothing to do for a few hours. We hang out, tell stories, watch t.v. and pass the time before we focus on the battle. Friends and family contact us to wish us luck and hear our fight day thoughts.
I have been privileged to train so many dedicated boxers of all skill levels. I have enjoyed the ups and downs of this past year and appreciated how my own skills have grown. Next year will be a whole new ride with familiar experiences and goals and we look forward to sharing each and every one with you.
Today is Omar’s last amateur fight as he is going to switch gears and focus on coaching. It’s been a few years and close to 20 bouts that he and I have collaborated. Omar is a special human, full of passion for community, love of boxing and a loyalty to self growth. He has gotten himself into impeccable shape and learned how to cut weight in a healthy and steady manner. Each and every experience has given him valuable knowledge and insight to be able to lead others as he takes off in his coaching career.
We are lucky at Arcaro to have him as a coach and I am lucky to have worked with such a dedicated, articulate, intelligent and committed athlete!
Now, it’s time to get in there and have a blast.
