Juan “Hungrybox” Debiedma has found himself on the top of the Super Smash Bros. Melee world after a highly successful 2017. But his road was not an easy one, and when asked what’s next, he simply states, “Do you ever have everything you ever wanted, and then once you have it, you’re like, ‘now what?’”

In this interview with HTC Esports, Hungrybox, along with his coach Crunch, talk about their history together — from childhood to adulthood — and his climb to the top through hard work. He also discusses his past, where he was labeled as standoffish — which caused him to lose fans in the beginning of his career — and his future, and what he hopes to achieve in 2018.
