Boxing is a family sport. Passed down from generation to generation.

It's weird how in ESB you're considered a kid from debut age up to 30yo

but from 35yo onwards, you're a declining old man who should be thinking about hanging them up

adult life is so short for a boxer
Actually it's 30 as of St. Hallow's Eve.

Yeah, that really is the line of demarcation where fighters are considered "old".

Growing up in Mexico and U.S.A., in Mexico it's a big deal, not as huge as soccer, but it's huge. So the love and interest I had for it in Mexico transferred to U.S. and tho the styles were different you learn to appreciate it. It all starts at home with the family. I blame the parents. Hell, all the latin women I've taken to the fights loved boxing I took one white girl she liked it, but didnt want to go after that. It's only in America where its become an old mans sport.
