Professional boxer from Congo. I came to Montreal at the age of 12. Growing up in one of the toughest neighbourhoods in the city, boxing allowed me to discover a world completely different from my own. Boxing was a gateway to the world in my teens. It allowed me to see beyond my neighborhood, my limits and rise above my circumstances. Today I have the pleasure to share my passion and I am excited to make you discover the amazing boxing community of Montreal.
