Abner Alan Lopez

USA PROFESSIONAL BOXER

My name is Abner “Alan” Lopez Jacobo.

I’m a 140lbs professional boxer. My record is not undefeated, but my career is far from over. I grew up all over Mexico, and much like my boxing career, my life was far from simple or easy. I went to school but I wanted a way to get laser eye surgery, and go back to the United States to be with my family. I knew through boxing this and more was within my reach. I am very grateful to say I was able to accomplish both these things. In 2015 I was able to fix my eyes and get a Visa. But before that in 2012, on June 1st, I was in a car accident with 3 other people, one of them being my father, and I was the only one to survive. I always believed God had something big in store for me, that his plan for my life was far greater than my own.

Now, 6 years later, I’m barely beginning to understand how dramatically the accident not only changed my life but changed me. I struggle with PTSD symptoms, feelings of depression, and extreme anxiety. None of this will stop me from my goals of being a world champion, a better person, or making a life for myself. I have a second wind in my career, in my life, I see how much I still can accomplish and remember the hunger I had at the beginning. I refuse to give up on my dreams even though I have been through set backs. But I cannot accomplish these things without your support.
