After some deep deliberation with my team, I have decided to withdraw my name from the Canadian contingent for the upcoming Commonwealth Games in Australia.
After 12 years of competing at the highest level, I have decided to take a step back from international competition in 2018. During this time, I will focus on my professional development and remain involved with Boxing Canada and the national team program. I will continue my training in Kitchener, Ontario with the support of my coach and team, with the hopes to compete for Canada at the Olympic Games in 2020. I believe this time will help me gain a fresh perspective while preparing myself for a future beyond competition.
Thank you for your continued support,
