Nehemiah Jones started boxing at 15 years old, a couple of years after his dad passed away. Jones started boxing to build his self-esteem and lose weight because he was bullied a lot in school. But what kept him boxing was his promise to his dad to become a world champion one day. He plans on never giving up on boxing until he achieves that goal and makes him proud. The boxers he looks up to include Gervonta Davis, Floyd Mayweather, and Mike Tyson.
