Hi there bloggers! Since this is our first week of freedom, I will take this opportunity to my advantage. It’s hard for me to choose what to write about. There are so many options such as: opinions on subjects, favorites, or anything else. I think I have finally decided what I will write about.
Boxing had its very first appearance around the time of 668 BC. The time of an Olympic game for the ancient Greeks. Boxing could be described as martial arts or a combat sport. Boxing is a sport in which two people are in a match and basically throw punches at each other. It may seem like a violent sport, but it really isn’t. It depends on how the participants of the sports see it.
Ever since I was a little girl, boxing has always been a tremendous interest. When ever my dad hears me talking about boxing, he starts talking to me more about his side of the family. That is the side of my family that I hardly even hear about. He tells me that the reason I have such a great attraction to boxing is because it is in my blood. He tells me stories of my great grandfather and his days as a boxer. He told me he was one of the best boxers ever in my family. He was even working on his way to becoming a professional, but it all changed in one match. That match was known as his last. After that match, he had decided to give up his passion for boxing and start helping and raising our family instead. I really wish I could have met him, but he had died before I was born. Well, at least I have my great grandmother and father to tell me about him because he still lives on. No matter what he will still be alive to me.
Boxing is a giant part of my life. It is the only way I feel that I can connect to my great grandfather. I know when I talk about boxing with my friends they usually don’t care. They either think I am crazy or too much of a wimp to join boxing. That is right, I am not in boxing. I have had so many opportunities to join, but I never do because I am afraid. Especially of what my friends or family may think. When I usually start talking about boxing with my friends, they usually start making jokes. The thing none of them understand how much boxing means to me.
I don’t see boxing as a sport. I see it as the only way I can feel connected to my great grandfather.
