On the left: My third amateur fight. Third finish in a row. The very first time he cornered me. We were just dating. On the right: Not my shining moment. A tough, devastating loss but he was there right beside me through it all. I’m beyond blessed and grateful that God has put this man in my life. My husband & head coach.
