I played lots of sports growing up: football, cricket, a bit of rugby, and did a year or two of boxing, among other things. Cricket went first (I wasn’t bad, though), rugby was a very casual thing during school, and the gloves made way for the HSC so I could still play my first love, football. He loved the work. But I always had an affinity for boxing. Among the close-knit group of nurses on the ward, some became lifelong friends. Journo takes on Tim Tszyu 5:17 I sparred a few times, albeit never seriously. Music was his passion. And although an amateur fight was somewhere on the bucket list, it ultimately turned out to be a relative impossibility. The video comes as China faces increasingly scrutiny over the COVID-19 outbreak, which originated in Wuhan last December.

You know, it would have to involve me, an adult, getting in the ring with another fully-grown adult. He was widely liked, someone who was both fun and funny. He was widely liked, someone who was both fun and funny. Who’s got the time? One thing led to another, though, and I ended up covering combat sports for foxsports.com. He also connected deeply with many of his patients, and they with him.au. Part of his legacy are those patients he cared for, many of them quadriplegics, some of whom he maintained contact with long after they were discharged. I spoke to boxers, covered fights, and thought back to my short boxing stint in a less-than-realistic pattern of ‘what could have been’ thinking. In 2014, Griffin's life changed.

THE IDEA Tim Tszyu basically came out of the womb with boxing gloves on. His father, Kostya, was a world champion, and the Tszyu Boxing Academy in Rockdale was his home. Over the next several days, Griffin believed Wilson displayed clear signs of an imminent stroke. Over the next several days, Griffin believed Wilson displayed clear signs of an imminent stroke. I first had the idea of trying to get in the ring with Tim when he came into the office shortly after beginning his Australian pay-per-view journey. He had just announced his fight against Joel Camilleri; the first local on his Main Event hit-list, that a year on, has just one uncrossed name: Jeff Horn. After nine days in hospital, Wilson suffered a massive stroke which left him with permanent damage. I called him a few days after he downed Camilleri and suggested it. Rory Wilson at home in his wheelchair ( ABC News: Jeremy Story Carter ) Even though he was initially instructed not to, Griffin filed an internal hospital report flagging possible medical negligence.

He laughed and told me to bring a mouthguard. But the decision came back: there had been no error. It only took about another year to actually get the idea over the line; Tim’s manager warning as he finally agreed to let it happen: “You won’t last 20 seconds”. THE FIGHT The first few moments of the first round (we settled on 3 x 1 minute rounds) were strange. He went on sick leave and was ultimately terminated. He went on sick leave and was ultimately terminated. I’d been so consumed with making sure everything was set up for the day — time, crew, Tim actually being there — that I sort of forgot about the actual boxing part. Standing there with headgear on, that for some cruel reason had less protection than Tim’s, it hit me: Oh f***, I’m in the ring with a professional boxer. He complained to one authority after another, including the Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency and the minister for health.

I knew three things going in: 1. All either accepted the hospital's account or told him the matter was outside their jurisdiction. I’m not a complete novice, although it’s close. Tim Griffin at his home in Melbourne, 2019. 2. Tim could obviously end this whenever he wants. He was a decent, careful man. He was a decent, careful man. 3.

This is going on the internet, so try to avoid looking like an idiot. But he said his obsession was based on the evidence. Fight or flight is the psychological response that occurs when a person goes into survival mode. All the while, as Wilson slowly pursued rehabilitation from his spinal and stroke injuries, he had no idea that a nurse he had never met — Wilson was unconscious the night Griffin admitted him — was persistently advocating on his behalf in the background. For pride and content’s sake, I bit down on my mouthguard and moved forward behind my jab; a punch Tim later told me I threw better than Horn, who he was supposed to face on April 22 before the fight was postponed due to COVID-19. Eventually, in exasperation, Griffin approached the ABC's 7. Tim had watched me warm up in front of the mirror so our cameraman could get some B-roll. Like learning how to stop, drop, and roll before running into a burning building, it felt somewhat pointless, but I did it nonetheless. We approached Wilson's legal team, and in 2019, patient and nurse finally met. We approached Wilson's legal team, and in 2019, patient and nurse finally met.

Any element of surprise was gone, while my own self-doubt had only grown. Either way, he didn’t take long to figure me out in the ring. ( ABC News: Jeremy Story Carter ) Wilson thanked Griffin profusely, saying his efforts were "phenomenal". A slapping left hook connected after I chased him with my jab early on; a recurring theme of the fight. But he also encouraged him to start to focus on his own recovery. Not long after, a big overhand right connected. Aftermath of going public. Yep, I felt that.

This became a familiar feeling. Source: Supplied I remember the first time I copped one to the face. My dad and I were play-fighting — I was probably around 13 or 14 — and I caught one on the nose. Stunned by what had just happened; my eyes watered and I skulked away. The initial shock passed seconds later, before I figured out that I was, in fact, not made of glass.

But wondering — leading up to the day — how I would react to a Tszyu punch, I was pleasantly surprised to learn that my brain and body were happy to continue after taking some early punishment. The first thing that struck me being in the ring with Tim, apart from his fists, was just how manicured his distancing and movement was. I’d have his head lined up, target locked, and throw my jab, only to mostly come up with air. He was either out of reach or to the side, loading up on a straight right or left hook. Then there were our energies.

And no, I’m not talking about star signs or chakras. Only one of us was comfortable in there, and it wasn’t me. He walked around the ring like he owned it, which he actually does. Meanwhile, I was just trying to figure out how to land a punch without eating something twice as big in return. My footwork was a mess; a frazzled crossing of wires, glitching between ‘avoid damage’ and ‘I need to land something ' desperation.

In truth, I didn’t pose too many questions, but he had all the answers anyway. I wasn’t a threat. He knew that, probably better than I did. My punches didn’t really register. Not because there was a complete lack of power — although that could have been a factor — but mainly because he’s paid to get punched in the face.

It’s part of the job. “I’m in trouble, boys,” I said near the end of the first, right before I tracked Tim down again, only to be clocked with another reality check of a left hand. It had been a minute, and I was gassed. Tim later said he was in cruise control, going about 50km/h in there with me. Sure that’s not 100, but it was plenty fast enough to flatten me.

The day before, a housemate had joked that I should do some crunches to better deal with the body shots I was sure to encounter. I laughed it off; one night’s work wouldn’t make a difference. Well, in the second and third rounds I was wishing I’d done something, anything to prepare. I stumbled around the ring like a badly constipated hunchback, doing everything I could to get some air after taking shot after shot to the gut; eventually dropping my hands to the canvas after one to the solar plexus. Sucking in nothing but disappointment, I did what I could to stay upright, slightly embarrassed that a jab was enough to drop me.

Tim enjoyed seeing me hurt a little too much. Source: Supplied I was over-committing on my punches; desperate to close the distance. But nothing really worked. Tim was out of the danger zone before I arrived, and he’d land a parting shot each time. I was being outclassed; a dog turning to chase his chew toy only to realise it’s still in his owner’s hand.

He had control of the ring, and everything that happened inside it. The final bell went, and we hugged it out. I had a bruised cheek to go with a slightly bruised ego — no, I’m not sure what I was expecting to happen — but otherwise came out relatively unscathed, having done enough to earn Tim’s respect, and enough to make me want to do it again. Done. Supplied THE HIGH We finished up in the ring and moved to the other side of the gym to discuss what had just happened.

Maybe it was the endorphin rush, maybe it was a concussion, but I was still buzzing. Do I have a future in boxing? “You’ve got a good jab,” Tszyu said. “You can start somewhere, I guess. But nah, you’re not too bad. You throw quick punches, you landed a few jabs on me.

” And how’s my technique compared to Horn? “I think it’s a bit better,” he said. “[You throw] straight punches, he’s a bit wilder. Completely different styles you guys have got. “But I think your technique is a bit better.” I’ll take that to the grave.
