Boxing Boys

We have a neighbor who has a 3rd grade boy and a K boy just like J & B. B & their younger son play sports together. We've been doing neighborly social stuff with them recently. It is nice to have friends just down the way.

The dad is into fitness in a MMA/Cross Fit/boxing kind of way. He is organized a trip for a bunch of boys to the gym to try a boxing workout. DH took J & B and they had a fabulous time.

The guy who owns the gym was some sort of boxing champion. I don't remember his name or his title. I do know the sad story of his title fight. The guy he boxed collapsed in the locker room after the fight and died a few days later. The gym guy quit boxing for a long time afterwards. Knowing that story, I hope the boys enjoy the workout but have no desire to actually box.

OT: Pacquiao will be getting back in the ring this 2016 with Timothy Bradley. Fortunately we can still see his training and fights at Manny Pacquiao Video Channel . Go check it out!
