WHYIFIGHT: Kwok NG
What’s your name, where are you from, and what do you do?
My name is Kwok NG and I’m born and bred here in NYC. I have had the good fortune of spending most of my career with one of the most well-respected money managers in our business.
What makes you a fighter?
My parents immigrated to this country and fought to have their version of the American dream and they did just that and more…It is in that same fighting spirit that I have fought to get to where I am today and where I hope to be tomorrow. You always hear boxing is for people who have to fight their way out of something but I like to see it also as a path to a new a jorney.
What do you fight for?
My parents and immediate family have been a great pool and source of inspiration for me so I fight to make them proud and hopefully pay it forward. Boxing is another tool for me and people alike to showcase the discipline and hard work we put into everything.
What inspires you to take the hits and keep on fighting?
Boxing isn’t any different than life….you can either keep on fighting or give up. And the latter isn’t an option so there isn’t any other choice in my mind but to keep on fighting no matter how hard the hits keep on coming. Once you “Embrace the Pain” of any obstacle you run into than everything else will fall into place.
If you could fight side-by-side with one person, past or present, who would it be?
Felix “Tito” Trinidad is one of my favorite all time fighters. He had his whole country rooting for him because of his fearless nature, willingness to fight the best, his mental toughness and let’s not forget those thunderous hooks with either hand.
What is your Fight Fuel?
Water, water, and more water!
What is your Fight Song?
Mama said Knock You Out (LL COOL J)
Who is your favorite EverybodyFights Trainer, and why?
Coach Hernan Santa is a beast and a great guy at the same time. We have been working together now for a few months now and I can tell you he does not fool around….Patience, discipline and hard work are all things we have in common and thru that we have earned each other’s mutual respect. So we are on this “journey” together now and I am looking forward to great things!
How do you Fight It Forward?
Working with my sister the last 16 months and watching her channel her inner strength to achieve certain health and wellness goals has been tremendously rewarding and an inspiration to me. She now knows what it means to be a fighter! WHYIFIGHT
