    I think I would rather be a Golden Retriever. They seem to have a lot of fun.

    I am a boxer and so much more... I have never regretted my decision to lace on the gloves. I can honestly say I'm a very different person from then to now.

    Keep your guard up and come out punching.

    I box! It started off as an alternative for fitness but has become so much more. It's also a very sexy sport!

    I started out in martial arts(TKD if you are interested), which i still practice, I only recently really started boxing training, which i enjoy a lot, and sometime i mix it up with my TKD strikes and kicks. It's a great workout, and also takes my mind off other things, i can truly focus and go for it.

    My problem is getting someone to spar full contact with me, I'm not that big, so I don't really understand it.

    My black eye I earned during a sparring match.

    Boxing really leans you out and gets the body you yearn for.

    Ow! That's a hell of a shiner! Think your sparring partner needs to use a little more control. Even so, I'm impressed at you wearing it like a badge of honor!

    It's a fantastic workout too! You will lean down FAST as a boxer.

    So, I'm asking for advice as I am a former fat boy who still has some extra weight and skin left behind - where should I go? Should I do some lower-intensity cardio boxing thing at a local gym? Or should I go more legit and find a boxing or MMA gym where I can learn? The reason I ask is because I am still a little nervous about doing this in public, but I know I need to get over that eventually...

    I used to box, had to stop, apparently it doesn't look professional showing up with black eyes, I miss it a lot, its a great workout. Since I can't box anymore I'm going to start rugby..... I think I might just be jumping out of the frying pan and into the fire though.

    torrentprime ... I say go to a legit boxing/MMA gym. Cardio boxing is all right, but for an intense workout - to the boxing/MMA gym.

    I'm interested in boxing because it's one of the best forms of cardio exercise. You can do the exercises and shadow box nearly anywhere. It's great for focus. Teaches and reinforces respect and self discipline. Releases pent up energy. And boxers have the best bodies.

    Boxing to knockout is a huge turnon for me, but I've only done it several times, in hotel rooms, spare rooms, back yards, on the beach. Love wearing short shorts, underwear, g-string, or nude.

    Blooming boxer garments, I can't. But I would looove to box... Except I don't believe in fighting crumpled violets. Let hairdressers speak English, or I am going to s-lime you in my next and a half reincarnation.
