Box­ing is fun. I haven’t had to use it for self-de­fence since my school days in Chicago. My dad

was an ac­tor, and the first com­mer­cial he did was for Un­cle

Ben’s Rice as a white, bearded Un­cle Ben. It was quite a de­par­ture from what they’d had be­fore and

that caused a lot of strange, un­wanted at­ten­tion, with kids scream­ing, ‘Where’s my rice?’ at me. You try to laugh it off, but if things get heated, you have to

de­fend your­self.
