|If I didnít box I donít know what Iíd do. When I was about thirteen I was out with the boys one time and some skinheads attacked us and beat us up. I said to myself that I had to learn a proper sport so that I could protect myself. Since then Iíve been going to the gym to learn boxing and I donít reckon anyone would try it on with me these days. Thereís quite a few lads like me go to the gym, and several have had the same experience as me. Sometimes we teach the younger kids, though I enjoy the competitions the best!
Otherwise I like going to the football with the lads, or just out. I canít stand being at home in the flat in the evenings, Iíd rather hang out with the lads and chat or go work out in the gym.
