The boxer has support from a loving family, as well as his fans. 

"Manuel spent years with Roberto Luna, who trained three Olympians. Manuel was to bet he [sic] fourth before he had to miss two Olympic qualifying trials in 2012 to rehabilitate s [sic] shoulder injury in a fight that was to be his last as a female."

He has spent the last few years transitioning. And he's shared his journey online.
