Bill Flynn, 56, of Prairie Village, Kansas.

"I got back into boxing about ten years ago, doing some sparring, then working out… It's been a hell of a way for me to stay in shape, keep a little bit of a competitive edge."

"You don't want to ask my wife (about my boxing)…she's OK with it but preferred I didn't, but the other people that know me are encouraging."

"We've got headgear and bigger gloves…they match us up according to our ability for the most part. It's a contact sport, every once in awhile, you're gonna get zapped."
