Brian “The Bull” Barbosa is a two-time Interim World Middleweight boxing champion, but his fiancée, Gina, says that when she met him three years ago, Brian was just a shell of a man.

“He had nothing. He was homeless for over a decade,” she says.

Gina says that Brian spent time in prison for assault, lives with traumatic brain injury, and claims that he abuses drugs and alcohol. She says she has taken on the responsibility for nearly every aspect of his personal and professional life.

“I knew what I was getting into,” she says in the video above. “I knew I was going to have to go through the fire for the potential and possibility for him to get well.”
