About 20 to 30 seconds into the 2nd round, I was hit with a right hand. I woke up that night in the hospital; I had my Orbital Bone broke, , and a bone chip punctured my left eye.

I had a 57 hour surgery to remove the bone chip from my eye, ending my boxing career. From there, I got into the business / training side of boxing.

Since they day in 1993, til present day I have had 31 different surgeries to correct the vision in my left eye.


That is terrible man tough to hear something like that
