Jan2014_Knockout_FemiOmopariola

This January our coaches have selected Babafemi (Femi) Omopariola as our Knockout of the month. Femi, 16, has been with us for about 8 months. He joined with the hopes of becoming a good professional boxer one day. Coach Jovanni Rubio says Femi first caught his attention because

“He is always smiling and has a positive attitude. What really stands out to me always is that Femi is self motivated and trains real hard, with integrity and intensity.”

Femi has gotten in better shape by becoming a great boxer:

“I like sparring the most, because I can apply what I’ve learned. Also hitting the bags and catching gloves.” 

When asked how he sees himself 10 years from now, Femi replies simply, “Living well.”
