  "I feel like I’m in the best shape of my life right now! My training camp has been my lifestyle for the past year. I’ve been 100% in my dedication without fail this entire year. I’ve surpassed so many of my goals and never stopped on my growth. I live, breathe and sleep boxing. Everything I do I make sure it benefits me in what I’m trying to do and achieve. I’ve made a lot of sacrifices to achieve this, but know In my heart it’s the approach I need to take. I make sure I fuel my body with the correct nutrients to stay strong and healthy. I take the same approach with my mentality. You must feed your mind with positivity and stay away from the things that don’t support a healthy mind. My team, coach, and family are 100% invested in me as I am in the sport. I believe in surrounding myself with a team that has the same fire and drive because I’m so physically and mentally focused and doing everything I possibly can. I emotionally know who I am and what I’ve become on this journey. I’m not just a girl who decided to be a boxer In this sport. I’m a warrior by heart and this is what I was meant to be doing in my life! I go into this next fight knowing I’ve pushed myself and given everything I possibly can, and will represent myself and my team at Jose Morales Boxing Academy proud and confident."

  "It doesn’t matter where i fight because I always have my team with me and the support is felt wherever I am by the ones still at home. The boxing community I live in is my family. I am very excited that being so close I can have so many of the people who do support me be apart of this special night and see what I’ve been working so hard for come to light! There’s a lot that goes into these events and I’m so thankful for everyone who brought it together. We all can come together on this night and be a strong team!"


David Melgoza

  “I feel overall more than ready to get back in there. This has been my longest layoff in between fights, so I’m really looking forward to showcase what we've been working on.”

 “We've been working on every scenario in that ring. We will be ready for whatever game plan they come with. I take pride in putting on a good show for the fans. If you aren't in the building with me on fight night, you are gonna miss out on a memorable night in Sacramento.”

 “Fighting in Sacramento in front of all of my friends and family has been a childhood dream come true. I’m blessed to be able to do it on multiple occasions. Thank you Sacramento for always showing me so much love throughout this journey I fight for you guys.”
