  1. Hi Jerome,

    Thank you for sharing interesting facts about Joseph Parker. How amazing is that, starting boxing at the age of 11 years old. So young. Have you ever watched any of his matches? He is such a good fighter. Very fit and strong. My nephew Che has always been inspired to follow his footsteps one day. I believe you can be anything you want, you just need to have the right mindset. Don't you think? I hope Joseph Parker's journey has inspired you to be the best you can be in life Jerome.

    Best wishes,
