My story is a little different than of a typical boxer. I started boxing art the age of 22. Most boxers start at the age of 8 competing. I came into the sport really late — a friend introduced me to a boxing gym, and I fell in love with it like the second I walked in there. But growing up I was a tomboy, so I was really athletic, I was the schoolyard champion.
I didn't believe how quick it was. When I saw the videos, I was like — no, it can't be that quick, it can't be faster than I am. But then, getting on it, — it's really quick, it's smart, and it made me work just letting you know if you're punching hard enough, letting you know if you're throwing the punch correctly.
