The big man from Japan!
Joshua spent his young life in Japan; the place he claims fostered his affinity for combat sports.
After his dad’s retirement from the Navy Joshua and his family moved to Alabama and went to a liberal arts college where he developed a love for the sport of MMA –particularly the boxing aspect and training of it.
Currently living in South Slope, Brooklyn Joshua works as a Project Coordinator at The Lighting Design Group, a boutique lighting design firm that specializes in broadcast television – think CNN, MSNBC, Fox News, Yahoo/OATH, MTV, and so much more.
“I love boxing because it allows me to better myself in more ways than one. Without giving some long list of things that boxing has done for me the two most important are: I’m becoming more physically fit with each passing week of training and my mindset is becoming sculpted in such a way that I am starting to really see that anything I put my mind to I can do. Without boxing, I wouldn’t have come close to accomplishing any of my fitness goals that I’ve set out to achieve.”
Joshua’s heroes he admits change dependent upon the times: “Yes, Muhammad Ali is a hero of mine and now so is Colin Kaepernick. I find that heroes to me are people who would sacrifice everything for the betterment of someone they’ve never even met. Those are the type of people I consider heroes.”
We are happy to have you with us Big Man and look forward to your bout!
