With motivation and courage, Ronnie had made a decision. He wanted to change his life completely and really begin to "live". So he decides to get into the sport and fight day after day to achieve his goal. At first, he was walking very slowly because it was difficult for him to walk. A simple move was a feat for him because of his overweight. But the more he practiced, the easier it became for him.
