Alex Torres-Rynn (2-0) was once one of Canada’s top amateur fighters. He won many titles and traveled the world. He turned pro in July of 2014 and fought only once after winning a unanimous decision September of this year. Rynn has learned that it’s one of those things that can happen in the pros but being healthy and prepared for whatever comes along is very important.
“You know what, it’s (inactivity) just one of those things,” said Rynn. “Obviously it’s easy to point fingers, even at myself, but it simply hasn’t worked out as I had envisioned. The important thing is that I’m here, I’m healthy, I’m undefeated and ranked. I feel super confident and the future is bright.”
Rynn has had other opportunities to fight this year but opponents pulling out close to the fight date has left him waiting. He is currently scheduled to return to the ring in January in Calgary and hopes to step his game up in the coming year.
“I’ve recently spoke with Eric De Guzman of Teofista Boxing and I should be fighting on his next card in January in Calgary of course. No names as of yet but I’m sure that will be discussed soon. I really have no opponents in mind really. As an amateur, I had the benefit of fighting and beating some of the best from around the world so right now I’m not too picky. I have a lot of goals for 2016 but I don’t want to get ahead of myself. First thing is first, I hope to fight my first six-rounder in January and then just climb up the ranking until I can eventually fight for a title of some sort.”
Rynn is also willing to make a move up or down in weight should a fight come along that would move him in the right direction and no matter what happens he stays positive.
“To anyone out there. If things sometimes don’t go your way, just remember the easy thing is to give up, butt to persevere and work harder, especially when people say you can’t do something. That is what makes a real champion. Win or lose.”
