Quote: ”I’ve loved boxing ever since I can remember and always wanted to be involved in one way or another. I use to go to the gym with my dad at a young age along with going to the fights. I boxed for Earl and Bill Kaehn in the Golden Gloves and later in the Navy. After a skiing accident I ripped my knee up pretty good and decided to quit. A few years later I went to California to give it another try when I wrecked my knee again and decided it was enough. I will always be grateful that I did some boxing. It was a great experience and I can appreciate watching a good fight.”
