Boxing for Beginners – Strength Magazine – November, 1926

Boxing is one great sport; there are no two ways about it, and it is a pastime that nearly every boy takes to the same as a duck takes to water. I remember how proud I was after I had taken my first boxing lesson, and how eager I was to get home and demonstrate the straight left to my dear old pater. I swelled up like a balloon, and let me tell you it was not necessary for me to desire to change places with old Fitz, Gentleman Jim or Jefferies.
