His nickname, Popó, was given to him by his mother, after the sound that babies make while drinking milk. Freitas had a difficult childhood, often sleeping on a sandy floor at his house. Since early in his life, he dreamed of a better place to live for his family. A skilled football player, he was more inclined, however, towards the sport of boxing since an early age. Fellow Brazilian Eder Jofre, generally recognized as the greatest world champion to come out of that country, was one of Freitas' childhood heroes.Freitas competed for his native country and won a lightweight silver medal at the Pan American Games 1995 in Mar del Plata.
