INSPIRATION TO PARTICIPATE
I am a glutton for punishment.  I like to inflict pain on myself because I like the stories the scars tell.  However, not everyone who suffers chooses to do so.  It is for them that we fight, to lighten their burden a little.

HARDEST PART OF TRAINING
Chasing a chicken in a back alley.

MOST ENJOYABLE PART OF TRAINING
Getting punched in the face.

FAVORITE BOXER
"Honey" Roy Palmer

PRECONCEPTIONS OF BOXING THAT HAVE BEEN CHANGED
I didn't have any preconceptions about boxing.  When I signed up for this I actually thought it was a 5k.

GREATEST SPORTING ACHIEVEMENT
Defeating the Tasty Burger Challenge in under 30 minutes.
