Eighteen-year-old Michael Valentin is already a boxer of some pedigree. Indeed, in the course of his short, burgeoning career, he has won all of his four fights. After Valentin was awarded his latest victory on points, however, he used his chance to speak to the crowd to divulge a secret. And in the process, those around him found out what the young fighter had to battle every day.
Valentin is an up-and-coming boxer in the teen lightweight division. He had left high school in order to devote himself to his dream of being a fighter and had turned professional in June 2017. And up until 2018 he hadn’t lost a fight; the teenager had even won one of his bouts by knockout.
