24/7discipline, a lifetime of dedication, nerves of steel... A few reasons right there why only a select few make it in boxing – but Omar Estrada Diaz has already checked them off his to-do list.  At 19, he’s just made the switch from amateur champion to pro – thanks in no small part to the fact that boxing is practically in his blood. 

"My mom and dad used to practice boxing back in Mexico – they knew it was a sport that involved hard work and dedication and discipline,” he says. His parents’ values clearly had an impact; between them, Omar and his siblings boast a slew of amateur championship titles. 

Boxing since early childhood means that Omar is not only in peak physical condition, but has likely had a head start on the psychological side of competitive sports, too – just in time to turbo-charge his professional career.

“Nerves are a normal thing, but they can make or break you in the ring. I have learned how to control them,” he says. “I don’t worry about my competition, because I know how hard I work.” He’s not exaggerating – for Omar, a typical day involves waking up, running in the morning, strength and conditioning and then boxing training.

He has a boxing gym on his driveway at home in Hillsboro, Oregon, “so I can pretty much train 24/7,” and calls this “a luxury I couldn’t live without.” Epic hard work a luxury? It’s a curious mindset, but maybe one we could all learn from as we watch Omar from the sidelines, pummeling his way towards each of his goals: “Signing one of the best boxing promotions in the world. Trying to give my family a better life. Trying to reach my dreams, day by day.”  Watch this space…

How would you describe your style?

“Casual, modern, sharp.”

What do you love about wearing GBA?

“The quality and style are amazing. I can find a Gaucho - Buenos Aires piece that will suit me for any occasion.”

How does the brand fit with your lifestyle?

“It gives me something easy to choose and comfortable to wear for my very active everyday.”
