16. Person you most admire? My Dad lost him to kidney failure in 2014 after what I thought was my last fight due to being depressed and him not being there. But I was talked into in and thought it would help me heal from his passing and it did. I trained harder than ever and was offered to fight for the title and belt. Best corner man and hero ever, he was my biggest fan and supporter. He loved the Battle of the Badges & Guns & Hoses. Always loved to watch his son sling leather and represent. He was my Mentor and was in EMS for over 30 years, I followed in his footsteps with the Fire service & Paramedic. He was my motivation for fighting in 2015 for the Title in my class, I won the belt and title due to him being in my corner up in heaven and my inspiration.
