Q: How long have you been involved in boxing and how did you get into being a trainer?
A: I have been involved in boxing since I was a young boy. I am the youngest of 4 brothers and we were all involved because we loved the sport. I became a trainer during the time that I would spar with amateurs and professionals preparing for a fight and they would tell me that they liked my style of boxing as well as my style of training so they would ask me to train them.
Q: How did you meet and start training Nick & Nate Diaz?
A: I met Nick & Nate at a martial arts gym called Pacific Coast. I was training my pro boxer Rodney Jones and they were training Jiu Jitsu. On one occasion during training Nick approached me and asked if I would train him for his upcoming fight with Robbie Lawler and I agreed. I eventually started training Nate also.
Q: You’ve been in the corner for both Nick and Nate for some of the most legendary UFC performances in the sport’s history. Do you have a favorite moment?
