Glen Tapia

Pro Boxer

 

1.) What advice do you have for an aspiring boxer?

If you are an aspiring boxer the best advice I could give you is to work real hard and stay focused! There will be a lot of distractions in your life while coming up. You always have to keep it in the back of your mind that your friends and the people around you, are not living the same life as you and they don't have the same goals as you, so you can't live or do what they do.

 

2.) What is your future goal?

My future goal is to be known as one of the best boxers of all time!

 

3.) What has been your career highlight so far?

My career highlight so far has to be getting chosen to be Manny Pacquiao's main sparring partner a couple of years ago. To be in the ring sparring, and in a training camp with one of the greatest boxers of our time is an amazing experience, and even better for a young prospect like me. I learned what it takes and how hard you have to work to become the best. It changed my life.

 

4.) What does a typical day look like for you?

A typical day for me starts at 5 in the morning with a 3-5 mile run (depending on the day) then coming home eating and relaxing until I go to the strength and conditioning gym at around 12 pm. Then coming back home, relaxing with my family and friends until I have to go to the boxing gym at 7. By the time I come back home I'm exhausted from some hard work. Then I eat, sleep, and wake up the next day and do it all over again. I know when you see successful athletes you think they're "lucky" or have an easy life but the truth is that there's a lot of sacrifice and work that we put in every day, and if you want to become the best you have to work harder than everyone!

 

5.) What do you like to do in your free time?

In my free time I like to play basketball with my friends and spend a lot of time with my family. I've been blessed with a beautiful 10 month old daughter (Isabella Nouvel Tapia) and it's been fun seeing her grow every day.

 

6.) What was your favorite subject in school? Why?

When I was in school my favorite subject was history. It was always fun to learn about all the great things people have accomplished in the past.
