Meet Agnesa Kirakosian of Spitfire Boxing in Sun Valley

Today we’d like to introduce you to Agnesa Kirakosian.

Agnesa, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I started learning boxing five years ago at Glendale community college. It was a club organized by there students. At the time I had hit a dead-end a fork in the road and I had so much anger and I needed to do something useful with this fuel, as I was walking on campus I saw a group of students working out at the basketball courts it all looked so fun and they called me in asked if I wanted to join the club and I always wanted to box I just never knew where and I knew it had to be expensive so thats why I never seemed it out. But I guess boxing chose me, I didn’t choose it. I was originally a cross country and track runner, that was therapy as well but not as much ads boxing is, as I started boxing I never thought I would end up teaching the art to anyone else but as time went on I I become the president of the boxing team and then I was already teaching what I knew, later on I ended up signing up at a gym that my friend from the club was attending and I was there for two years and I got my first and second fight with were both losses but against very experienced opponents. I then got a new coach and went on a winning spree of winning 11 fights in one year.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
It is never a smooth road I went through a lot of roadblocks that would have had a sane person quit by now. I always wanted to challenge myself and I wanted to spar pros before my time and one time I got a concussion. My favorite coach passed away, I really thought he would be in my corner when I turned pro. Master Jesse Jechuga was an amazing person and it has been hard trying to find a coach like him, I’m beginning to think that I will never find a coach like him. it’s been hard trying to find the right coach, having many options, it’s still hard to choose what road to take.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with Spitfire Boxing – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
I’m a boxer and a trainer. I am proud of the fact that I like to work hard and always give my 100% I like that I’m genuine and have a strong heart. I feel like even though I didn’t start young as a boxer I was really born to be a fighter.

So, what’s next? Any big plans?
I’m trying to figure out if I should go to Armenia try and get on the Olympics team over there and go compete in the 2020 Olympics, or just go professional already.
