One he reached his teenage years, Michael was placed in a stable family in Malverne, New York.

“I want to be active, and I want to fight as much as possible. Kinda like when Tyson was coming up, and fighting very frequently. I live by the motto that if I can see it, I can achieve it,” finished Coffie.
