The Aprons for Gloves fundraiser has been a huge part of my life the last few years. I have fought in the event twice. I lost the first time and come back to win the following year. THE CHAMP IS HERE!!.. I made a ton of life long friends through the process. I was able to take last year off and watch from outside the ring and cheer all the new contenders on. May have had a cocktail or two...

You learn a lot about a person while training side by side, sweating and cursing, and bleeding together. As a group, we push each other to work as hard as we can in the gym. That work ethic follows us contenders out into the world. Maybe we already had it…

I have had success and failure inside and outside the ring. What I have learned most about AFG is whom you choose to surround yourself with in this life is everything. That way, whether you are falling or rising you have people who are there for you.

The last time I competed in the Restaurant Rumble, my community rallied behind me. I received a ton of unconditional love and words of wisdom from all around me. I will never forget raising my hand in victory. I will never forget those closest to me who pushed me to be the best I can be.

This year I choose to defend my Championship tittle because I believe sending the message to the world that being the ultimate version of yourself is the only way to live your life. #BELIKEMIKE

 

Founded in 2012, Aprons for Gloves Boxing Association is a non-profit organization focused on providing community outreach through the sport of boxing. Based in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, the organization was developed by a small group of professionals and entrepreneurs who seized an opportunity to re-establish a historic boxing program for at-risk women and youth. The program offers free mentorship and training to individuals who may otherwise not have the resources or support to participate in such activities. The sport of boxing teaches discipline, respect, hard work and self-control. Training results in positive self-esteem, good health and camaraderie for its practitioners.
