Boxing has weight classes ranging from 100 lbs to 200 lbs. I worked with a few at a low amateur level, and by comparison, they said boxing training was more difficult. These individuals played Jr league and high school football. I never played competitive football but played in dozens of pickup games as a youth without any protection of any kind.

I took my interest in other aspects of the sport. Watching and analyzing fight moves styles and recording fights on television back in the days when every home had VCRs. I am a middle-aged man now and do not follow the sport closely anymore but during a time I was a super mega-fan and did not follow anything closely but The Sweet Science. I hope an interest will be brought to and appreciated through my contribution. I am a high school graduate who barely got through because I was not interested in the subject matter being taught. I work in the Private Contract Security field for over 30 years. I have been happily married for 16 years and have 2 stepdaughters. My wife's name is Erika and the daughters are Andrea and Elena.
