Boxing

Anyone else here do it?
I haven't been boxing long, but I was told at my aircrew medical after AIB I would have to stop...
It's a shame because I was looking to box when I entered but hey ho.
Wondering if anyone else on here boxes?

I enjoy my good looks and straight nose, so no. I'm sure Rumrat or Jesse mentioned they were navy boxers many moons ago.

:strong: I've not stepped through the ropes for 35 years, but it never leaves you. I still work out daily, my garage looks like the set of a Rocky film, with ; heavy bag, light bag. speed ball and torso man. :roll: Cant do links or I'd post a photograph. I never made the big time or the A.B.A but I enjoyed it and I'm still essence skin at 70. 8)

Shurup or I'll batter you you old twot :D

After crimbo are you coming up to see Stirling with me, we'll make plans later if your up for it.

Back on thread, yes I had some fights for the mob, won 14, drew 3 and lost 2. Light heavy, tried heavy for a fight and got beat up for 3 rounds in a 3 round fight. :oops:
My last fight in the mob was in the key and anchor club in Gib in 73 and won, so quit whilst winning. :wink:
Any PTI will coach you and you will get as much help as you require.

That sounds great, can't wait to smash a few pongos heads in! Maybe because I'm not going pilot they may look more kindly on my hobbies, although I still wouldn't want a brain dead observer commanding a Lynx.

I'll have to beg, or play something else...

Did a fair amount of boy boxing before I joined up and continued in the mob.
Had a lot of fights and won my fair share[and got beat up badly sometimes especially by the Australian champ in Far East he outclassed me knocked me bandy!]
Really enjoyed it but nowhere to train on frigates to any degree and when I finally joined the Vic where you could train I was to far rum lashed to participate in training
Best was, whenever joining a ship and they looking at your previous record and finding you were a boxer you were treated a great deal better than others.
Every Skipper wants a sporting winner on his ship,Boxer,football,cricket whatever,like "From here to Eternity"
Go for it until you meet a boxer with an unmarked face,then pack in he's too good to get hit and your going down![as our Yank friends will say!]
