There are many young minority positive role models to report on, besides those involved in sports. Boxing, in my opinion, isnt a violent sport--simply a serious contact sport (a sport that many people just arent cut out for, and thats for sure). Unfortunately, the negative stories we read and hear about, more often than less, just happen to be more of a news interest. And, sports is a great outlet for youth of all ethnic backgrounds and ages. I feel that if the public would embrace these positive role models, when they do surface, many more youth would be attracted to that positive feedback rather than to idiotic behaviour. I would rather that this kid continues punching people in the boxing ring(the place for it), than in the streets punching on me.
Congratulations to these young boxers! You guys deserve all the credit in the world for your accomplishments. Ive always wondered what it would be like to earn a championship belt. The City should keep their eyes open for you both in the 2016 Olympic Games.
