my mother did drugs … It took my grandma about three years to get us back as we went into different homes — to a foster family, to a group home. It was like we were locked up, too — the only times we could see our family was for about 30 minutes in this little room. The disruptions of these years hardened me. I would fight with the neighborhood kids. I’d even fight my [15-year-old] brother’s battles. My uncle James Walker observed my talent and with the help of the financial assistance from another uncle to buy boxing equipment, he took me to hit the gym operated by the coach, Calvin Ford. Even though I was in that gym fighting, I felt like I was getting the love I didn’t get at home, After school let out around 2:30, I’d go straight to the gym to be the first person there, even though it didn’t open until about 4:30. I was the littlest one and I was good, so they took me seriously. If it wasn’t for the gym, I would’ve been out in the neighborhood running wild, But most of the time, I was out of town at tournaments, because I was winning so much. I feel really blessed.”
