Junior Petanqui began boxing at the age of 16. He had asked his mother for a one-month membership in a boxing club as a birthday present to have a physical activity he could participate in with his friends. He initially wanted to learn how to defend himself, but he quickly fell in love with the sport itself.
Junior persevered in the sport, despite his friends dropping out progressively. He was highly motivated and wanted to reach the top of his sport: become a world champion like many great boxers who marked history, such as Mohammed Ali, Sugar Ray Leonard, Roy Jones Jr. An older man training in his first boxing gym noticed him training every day and noticed his talent. He then went on to help him for his first bout, which he won. He loved the experience and wanted more. He has continued to train hard ever since.
The thing that he loves most about boxing is the art of hitting without getting hit. He knows that by working hard and persevering, everything is possible.
Beside his career as an athlete, Junior is currently finishing his DEC in Social Sciences and he wishes to pursue a Bachelor degree in Business Administration as of next year. Over the next decade, he wishes to finish his studies, participate in the Olympic Games, become a professional boxer and have a family.
