Biography

TRAINING: Wake up, eat breakfast: eggs, ground turkey, spinach. Take my two daughters to school and head to the gym at 9:30 a.m. for a session, which is usually pads or strength and conditioning training with George Castro.

Do you have any heroes? My Dad and Brother and Dominick Cruz

It means the world to me. I can give hope to the kids in my anti-bullying campaign, “The Gremlins Kids,” and show them that if you work hard, anything can happen. I can provide for my baby girl and give her the best life possible.
