Some weeks ago having lunch at the Frontküche I saw a flyer or was it a sticker of the Boxwerk.Checking their website I decided that I have to train there soon. The Boxwerklogo, their “cultural” approach combined with boxing and the whole concept which stands behind this club seems to be very interesting and well rounded. Can´t wait to see it in real.
Mike Tyson – Early years, a rare documentary:
From his early years, influenced and formed well by Cus’D Amato and not messed up by the others who followed. Cus died in 1985 when Mike was only 19 and started to get a Pro. Cus says in this footage something like: “My goal is not only to form a champion but also to make him independent from me”, hard to say but he failed with the second part of his saying, by passing away too early, RIP.
It has been a lazy 4 weeks, I did not do any sport. But this week I started again to hit the punching bag and to train a bit. Feels great and the weights and tools needed some attention. To quick spiders and plants take over my litte home gym. No need to pay some fool monthly for training machines and “free” energy drinks. All it needs is some iron and dedication. Sometimes a friend who kicks your ass is also quite a motivation.
Turning 40 next year there is a unfinished project. I really have to do my first Muay Thai fight. So i better get back in shape. I even think about letting my beard grow until the day of the fight. We will see.
