John Kennelly, 62, of West St. Paul, Minnesota.
"This is my fifth competitive bout. I walked into a gym eight years ago and had never boxed in my life. I kinda was doing aerobic kickboxing but never liked the kicking part of it and I always wanted to do some punching and lose weight. I've lost 40 pounds since I started boxing eight years ago. When you're a Masters boxer, you have to have a physical and my doctor's comment this year was 'I don't quite get your hobby but I'm glad you're doing it."
"I like the competitiveness of it….there's no hiding behind a team, there's one person against another."
