USA Boxing

In mid-August, I traveled to Maiquetia, Venezuela for the American Boxing Confederation Championships as the team doctor for USA Boxing’s Elite Men’s Team. In the past two decades, I have volunteered as a doctor for amateur boxing matches as well as professional ones, helping facilitate a sport that provides direction for young athletes. I have always loved boxing, especially the people I’ve encountered. It has a positive influence on young people and helps those at risk in the inner city avoid negative influences by keeping them focused. The rigors of training help instill a positive work ethic in them while encouraging them to stay in shape and avoid drugs and alcohol.
