You know, it’s a pretty amazing thing to look back over your life and to recall all the interesting people that you have met. I did that a while back and I want to tell you about a guy I met in Houston several years ago. This guy’s name is Robert and he is an agent for a lot of professional boxers. I’m talking about some serious guys. Anyway, he walked up to me one day and he said, “Ed, have you ever been to a professional boxing match?” I said, “No.” So he took me to a boxing match in Houston.
So while I was sitting there watching this boxing match, he walked up to me and said, “Ed, I’ve been back there in the dressing room and I was wondering if you would like to experience what it is like to be in the ring with a heavy-weight boxer? Would you like to feel what’s it like?” I said, “No man, I mean I don’t want to get hit.” He said, “No, no, no. I’m not talking about getting hit. I’m talking about you standing there and letting a boxer throw punches at your head.” I said, “Well yeah, I’ll do that.” He said, “Come on.”
So we went into this dressing room and here is this heavy-weight boxer. He’s like 6’4”, 230; he has a hood on and he’s shadow boxing. Robert says, “Okay, Ed, come a little closer.” And then he told the guy to start punching at my head. This guy’s gloves are coming like an inch away from my nose and eyes.
I could feel the wind. It was a frightening experience. But it was a unique experience because literally this guy could kill you with just one punch.© Copyright 2012 admin, All rights Reserved. Written For: Fellowship Church Ed Young
