What is your ultimate goal in boxing?

I want people to know whatever you want to achieve in life is attainable regardless of whether you get told you can't or shouldn't do something. You can as long as you dedicate yourself.

The more titles I win and the further I move towards the top the more this can inspire people and turn doubters into believers.
