“I first took up boxing at White Collar Boxing Co. to better my fitness. While accomplishing that, I also got so much more: self-confidence, mental toughness, and a diminished fear of failure. I couldn’t have done any of it without the support of my trainers and fellow fighters, as well as my family, and for that I am immensely grateful. Tonight, I’ll possibly get my butt kicked, but at worst I’ll “lose while daring greatly,” as Roosevelt put it. That’s a victory to me, so there’s no way I can possibly lose. Thank you for showing your support by being here tonight and enjoy the show.
