his young man proves that drugs and gangs are not the choice that has to be made. All these gangsters need to listen up and get their acts straight.being in a gang isnt the only choice it is the stupid choice. This young man is a credit to himself and others should follow in his path.

I love this kid, he was a foster kid at our home for 4-5 years, and you can ask em we backed him up and never secluded him. Im very proud of the young man he's becoming, he really has had it harder than most, but he made use of his physical attributes, he was a quick study in every sport and the guy can eat like a horse, I still remember when we showed him how to play basketball, that was some fun time, i have no doubt that he will make the most out of the opportunity he was given, all he needed was an outlet for all that anger and along with sports, muy tai and boxing have turned his life around, truly remarkable transformation from this young man.
Hey Humberto if you read this man, we love you and we hope you know we all care about you.
keep doing your thing man and handle your business in school boy...like the biggie song the "sky's the limit"
i'll see ya fight soon

We have been blessed with this young man who is now and forever a part of our family. He is respectful, caring and most of all humble. We we able to watch this young boy turn into a young man. He is a role modle for his younger brother and other children alike. As a matter of fact he rescently recieved a letter from a local school. All the students signed the letter thanking him for being such a good role model. You really do not know how many lives you are able to touch by doing the right thing. Humberto/Robert has gone across many speed bumps in life. However no matter how big the speed bump is he makes it over the speed bump, knowing the road ahead will be smoother. Life is full of speed bumps but when you have people who believe in you and you believe in yourself there isn't any speed bump to big. Robert has dreams, and they will come true because as mentioned in the article he was born a fighter. We will forever stand behind this young man and along side him. Children are often times forgotton in the world of drama we live in. Just remember this is one young man that no one will ever forget.

I have had the honor of knowing this young man. He is kind, gentle and soft spoken. He is also very respectful of those older than he. An all around great guy. I have also seen him fight and he is truly remarkable. Raw talent that gets better by the fight. I was in Vegas and got to see the one fight he lost. He was as gracious in defeat as he is when he wins (Which is the usual outcome.) This kid is one to follow. A real rising star.

This Man Mr. Zatarian should be commended on his determination to fight against all odds. To have the strength and ability to accept guidance as displayed here through Mr. Salas is a true inspiration. Thank You for FINALLY bringing GOOD news to the world. It's much need in these times.

Amazing story. Not many people who are raised under those circumstances turn out like this. It's an inspiring story for others.

I was Humberto's Social Worker when he was in foster care. I am very proud of him for all of his accomplishments. I believe he will be a famous fighter one day and make it to the big fights in Las Vegas. He has a kind heart and the spirit of a fighter. I wish him good luck in all of his endeavors.
