Another WaPo boxing profile, this time of two middle-aged female boxers. Both met through boxing, and when one couldn't find an over-35 opponent to step in the ring with her, the other decided, hey, why not. And now they're best friends -- when they're not beating each other to a pulp. You really get a feel, in pieces like this, of how boxing is for the casual participant. Most folks who box never become world champs. I bet most never turn pro. For most, it's just a way to work off some aggression, have something to do, get some exercise, and if you're lucky, make a few friends.
