Matteo Hache (23)

Professional Boxer

How long have you been boxing for?

I started boxing in 2012.

You have 10 pro fights as of now, but how many amateur fights do you have?

In amateur I have done 58 fights.

For you personally, what has been the biggest difference between amateur boxing and professional boxing?

The biggest difference was in the prevention of the technical-tactical side as well as in the duration of the fight especially with the transition in 10 rounds.

How would you describe your current boxing style?

I think I have a style of boxing called stylist while respecting the noble art which is to touch without being touched.

In what ways has your boxing style changed most, since first starting your boxing career?

In the quest for efficiency I think that this is the point that has changed the most since the beginning of my career.

Before starting your pro boxing journey, what career path did you see for yourself?

Coming from a difficult adolescence, with precarious family means, I doubt I perceived another way out than boxing, for me it was my only way out.

What major things are you working towards now that you wish on achieving in the coming years?

I think that like any boxer who respects himself a world belt remains an objective to reach, now we build my career step by step accompanied by people of confidence helping me to grow day by day as well as my partners in particular the one who makes the most for me and allows me to evolve at the highest professional level: Goat Boxing.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

In 10 years, I will be 33 years old and I think that unfortunately we will have to face the fact that we will be at the end of our career. I hope that this interview will show us that I would be a multiple world champion.

Boxing at this level takes major discipline and sacrifice… Where does your motivation come from to keep doing what you do?

At a certain stage, we no longer talk about motivation but about discipline. I am a very disciplined fighter, I have been spending my life in the gym for 11 years, punching leather, my passion for this sport animating my days, so I am not talking about motivation but about the thirst to learn more.

What do you love most about the sport of boxing?

Boxing is the most complex sport whether it is in physical, neurological, emotional or even mental point of view, we are the gladiators of modern times.
