    First Time I Boxed

    The first time I stepped into the ring, it was really exciting. I really enjoyed getting in there and mixing it up with another person and seeing if I could beat them. I wish I would have stuck with it though. Oh well, life goes on

    The feel of the hit. It sucks the built up anger

    and pain right out of you. Like every given hit is a release and every taken hit is to remind you of what you're fighting for. It can make your demeanor so calm and collected. The confidence that comes from a hit that you know is going to be a KO is unparalleled. Absolutely the...

    What Makes "the Sweet Science" Sweet For Me.

    Ever since I saw Muhammad Ali in the ring doing a master class, I immediately got hooked in the sport. I did not understand how a sport where two man in the ring batter each other in a ring could be so damn beautiful. Ever since then I followed it religiously. It was simply...

    If I had to put names to a list of favorites. It would be Roy Jones Jr, Manny Pacquiao, and George Foreman. For different reasons...and many will disagree... but I like these guys.

    Boxing Fan And Practicioner

    I like boxing. I know how to fight, the techniques (footwork and handwork) and the game (psychology). But I am not conditioned to even spar or go in the ring for competition. I am out of shape and to old. The best hope is just to get in the ring to spar. You reach your peak at...

    Boxing

    I had no idea Olympic boxing even existed as a kid. Or that you could be older than 15 to be in the Olympics. Well, just this year, I found out how versatile the Olympics really are. So many areas and so much more chances past not being a 10 year old gymnast dynamo. I ...

    Boxed For 3 Years; Wish I Could Go Back

    From my freshman year to junior year of high school, I boxed. I loved it, and I dislocated my left thumb and pinky finger, in a one-time bare knuckle boxing fight. Doctor said if I go back, those are going to get worse (and I've been out of boxing for three years). My hand is...

    My old time favorite boxing ídols - Mohammad

    Ali and Floyd Patterson. Greatest gods of the sport. It is one of my favorite outlets in life. All the stress, anger and frustrations of the day just disappears when Im throwing those jabs, crosses and hooks at a punch bag and even better at an opponent.

    Reasons Why I Love It

    I started boxing about 2 years ago

    and since then I couldn't stop. There's something about the smell of the gloves, the feel of wraps around my hands and the sound of a punch that lands perfectly on a heavy bag that exhilarates me. I remember the very first day I walked into a boxing class I looked around at all...

    My uncle and I are huge fans of fight sports.

    I've watched more MMA than anything else but I think boxing is awesome because it can be precise than MMA. If anybody can ever say what matches to watch then that would be great.

    Understanding Boxing,Pros And Cons

    There are people who want to ban boxing,people who call it "stupid" or "barbaric." I remember a very intelligent man saying "Don't criticize what you can't understand." And there lies the problem. It doesn't make these people unintelligent just because they are clueless about...
