Shawn had a life long passion for boxing and trained under George 'Red' Mustato both as a youth and young adult. Red's death had a significant impact on Shawn.
In 2002, Shawn and his wife Jeannette began to consider the impact that this trainer's death had not only on Shawn but also on the other many athletes who had a desire to develop speed, agility and character through the practice of a sport they loved. It was then that Shawn and Jeannette began to survey the public on the need to open a boxing club in Timmins.
The search for a permanent location, boxing equipment, supplies and gear was initiated. The dream of offering Timmins a permanent boxing location, a top of the line equipped boxing facility with a regulation ring, offering certified boxing instruction for youth and adult of the Timmins and area became a reality in September 2003.
The Timmins Boxing Club began in the upper level of the Feldman Timber Building, offering a 4000 sq. ft. facility. It had a 20 x 20 regulation ring, 10 hanging bags, speed bags, medicine balls, hand equipment, a 60 sq. ft. fully matted room and a pro shop which offered all boxing, grappling and some martial art equipment. This old school stereotypical boxing club was a little rough around the edges; however, interest and enrollment grew each year. Expansion at the old club was not possible because the training rooms could not accommodate more than 35 athletes at one time.
In 2007 things abruptly changed. The Timmins Boxing Club partnered with the City of Timmins and moved into the newly renovated Confederation Sports Complex. The new 5000 sq. ft. boxing facility has enabled us to get the masses to the classes.
World's Toughest Sport?
We sized them up. We measured them, top to bottom. We've done our own Tale of the Tape, and we've come to a surprising conclusion. Pound for pound, the toughest sport in the world is . . . Boxing.
The Sweet Science.
That's the sport that demands the most from the athletes who compete in it. It's harder than football, harder than baseball, harder than basketball, harder than hockey or soccer or cycling or skiing or fishing or billiards or any other of the 60 sports we rated.
In Page 2's Ultimate Degree of Difficulty Grid, boxing scores higher than them all.
But don't take our word for it. Take the word of our panel of experts, a group made up of sports scientists from the United States Olympic Committee, of academicians who study the science of muscles and movement, of a star two-sport athlete, and of journalists who spend their professional lives watching athletes succeed and fail.
They're the ones who told us that boxing is the most demanding sport -- and that fishing is the least demanding sport.
We identified 10 categories, or skills, that go into athleticism, and then asked our eight panelists to assign a number from 1 to 10 to the demands each sport makes of each of those 10 skills. By totaling and averaging their responses, we arrived at a degree-of-difficulty number for each sport on a 1 to 100 scale. That number places the difficulty of performing each sport in context with the other sports we rated.
So put on the gloves, get in the ring and let the roundhouse hooks begin.
