Omar Figueroa

Interim WBC Lightweight Champion


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

Make sure it's something you really want to do. There will be times where you will say "is this what I really want to do?" 


2.) What has been the highlight of your career?

My highlight would be being able to box and having my brothers and children around supporting and looking up to me. It brings my family and people around me closer. 


3.) What are your goals for 2013-2014?

I just finished seeing a hand specialist and he said my hand will take a few more months till it is fully recovered. My goal for 2013 is to get my hand healed up. My goal for 2014 is to get back in the ring as soon as possible.


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

Hang out with my family, ride my bike, spend a lot of time with my daughter, and I like to eat!


5.) If you had the choice, who would you like to fight next?

I don't care to much, I don't know a lot about the other fighters in the division, so I leave it up to my dad and Al Haymon to decide.


6.) Who were your heroes growing up?

My parents. I learned everything I know from them. They taught me everything about life and how to survive it! They also taught me not to give up, how to be the man that I am, and how to stand up for what I believe.


7.) What was your favorite subject in school?

I'd say history.


8.) What does a typical training day look like?

Wake up, go to the gym, have lunch or breakfast (depending on the time), rest, strength and conditioning, then sleep.
