June 2012 King Swag: Justin “The Truth” Thomas

Can you describe the moment you discovered boxing to us?
Growing up in a negative environment, fighting was one thing u had to do on the regular basis. But I actually started boxing to relieve certain stress from home.

What is the story behind your nickname “The Truth?’
I got the nick name “The Truth” by the way I fight, but more so by my personality outside the ring. I’m always a man of my word, and if  someone asks me my opinion or advice on a situation, I tell the the truth and what they need to here instead of what they wanna hear.

What is it like working with Floyd Mayweather Sr.?
It’s a privilege and a dream to work with Floyd Sr. He is a very down to earth person and a good father figure. I also feel like I’m a step closer to accomplishing my dream, because of the experience, skills, and the knowledge he possess about the sport.

Do you participate in any community service or volunteering?
Yes I do. In my spare time I work with high school students from Sterling high school in Houston,Tx. I teach them how to box and talk to them. I try to keep them in a positive state of mind. I also try to make them realize that with hardwork and dedication they can accomplish anything they set their minds to.

What is your biggest boxing goal?
My biggest goal is to become a world champion.

Are you single?
Yes, I’m single.

Does being an athlete effect your relationships?
It depends on the woman, but in most cases it causes confusion, because boxing is a very time consuming sport. It requires you to travel a lot and be away from your family weeks at a time, and other restrictions.

What kind of swagher would you like a woman to possess?
To always be loyal and supportive of your man.

Please give us a boxing tip.
Protect yourself at all times.
