Rumble in the Rockies: Shawn Queenan
Tuesday, April 3 2018
During the coming months, we’ll be highlighting our fighters in training for the upcoming Rumble in the Rockies in Denver on June 14th. They’ve committed to four months of fundraising and training in preparation to get in the ring and literally fight for a cure. Whether their mom is battling, their father has passed or their friend has put up a victory against the disease – they’ve all got a story to tell and they’ve all got a reason to fight. Below you’ll hear from Shawn Queenan, fighting out of the ToS Boxing Club.
Where are you from?
Where’d you go to college?
Did you play any sports growing up?
What do you do for work?
Why boxing? Did you ever picture yourself fighting?
No, it’s a good challenge for a great cause.
Why on earth did you sign up to fight??
Had a friend who did it in Boston and wanted to try it.
You’re stepping in the ring to literally fight for a cure - where are you drawing your inspiration from? How has cancer affected you?
I have two grandparents that I never got know, it runs in my family and has affected others
What is going to be the most difficult thing to give up during your training? (beer, cheeseburgers, time spent watching TV?)
All of the above, the overall freedom of having few commitments
When you’re not throwing punches and training -- what other hobbies/interests do you have?
Hiking, skiing and I sing a mean karaoke
Who do you think is the most excited to watch you get punched in the face come fight night?
All my coworkers that hate that I am a Patriots fan
