"I feel motivated. It'll be great to have my American debut so close to home. It's one step closer to my dream of fighting at Madison Square Garden." Bamba
Boxing is arguably one of the most physically demanding sports that an athlete can take part in. As a professional boxer, it requires an individual to not only be passionate about what they are doing but also have the endurance and strength to be in the best conditions of their life. You are in constant motion and the world never stops until your opponent is down for the count.
Paul Bamba, a successful boxer, celebrity trainer, and combat fitness expert knows exactly what it means to be at the top of his craft. In 2020 Bamba turned pro after becoming a quarter-finalist in the New York Golden Gloves. As a Light Heavyweight, Bamba currently holds a professional record of 2-0 with BOTH wins being First-Round Knockouts. Bamba is also an entrepreneur and C.E.O. of Trifecta Strong, a New York-based boxing and fitness company that has trained a plethora of individuals from celebrities to everyday fitness enthusiasts.
Last week, in New York City Bamba hosted alongside the ladies of JJ Public Relations Consulting Agency, Jasmine Jones, Bryanna Bell, and Chevon DeShields, a media workout event to prepare for his next fight. He invited New York City’s finest media elites inside his private gym to get a personal and intimate view of one of his intense workout sessions and to get an inside scoop on his boxing journey. Ariana Mason, manager of Bamba, stated that the biggest lessons she has learned since working in the boxing industry is, “ the seriousness that comes with the sport of boxing and how important it is to make weight. We are a team and every day I am learning something new. We are all prepared so when Bamba walks in the ring we already know what to expect.” Today, Bamba is devoted to perfecting his craft and helping others be the best they can be.
We would first like to say thank you for your service and all that you have done to serve and protect people across the country. How did you go from being in the Marines to the person that you are now?
I was homeless. I learned from a gym in Morris Park that you could get paid 10 bucks to box. That day I didn’t eat and I realized that I could make 30 bucks a day. I started building from there.
Boxing takes a lot of time and preparation. How do you prepare for your big fights?
I work out 3 times a day, which is so much fun. I make sure that I eat what I need to eat and most importantly I try to keep myself in great spirits. My coach also helps me. We mainly work on footwork, defense, and staying sharp. One of the major things we focus on while preparing is not letting our egos fall in the mix. We box and do what we have to do.
What is the biggest lesson that you have learned while being a boxer?
Don’t Stop! No matter what you do make sure that you stay disciplined and that you are on top of everything. If you do that you are going to win, you are going to come out on top.
On your website, it reads, “Join the Trifecta Movement”, what is the Trifecta Movement?
The Trifecta Movement is a combination of Sport.Body.Mind. It’s encompassing all three things to help you take care of your body both physically and mentally. That is super important for us because we focus on the person as a whole. We are launching an app soon allowing everyone to join us on this movement.
That is truly amazing and we look forward to joining when the app officially launches. This month is “Domestic Violence Awareness” month and we understand that you teach self-defense classes to women. Can you tell us more about that?
Yes, about 3 or 4 years ago one of my clients said that she felt unsafe going to a train. I told her that I would help her with that plus she already knew the fundamental skills of boxing. We started working on different scenarios so she can feel safe and if something ever happened how to get away. She had a bunch of friends come and after the first class, they told me they felt more comfortable because of what they learned. After that, it was something that I implemented in what I do. It felt good to empower women and help them feel safe. It’s all about having the power to defend yourself.
You have a fight coming up soon. Where is it taking place and whom will you be fighting against?
My next fight will be on October 29th in Washington D.C. and I will be fighting against Ronald Lawrence. It’s going to be the same results as my other fights. I am READY!
We wish you the best of luck in your next fight and we will definitely be tuned in. Thank you for taking the time to talk to us at Short N Sweet Ent.
