Retired fighter Jake "The Snake" Smith, owner and head trainer of the Baltimore Boxing Club and a member of the Maryland Boxing Hall of Fame, doesn’t like tough guys.
Bullying, to be specific.
“It’s something I really don’t like,” he says. “I was bullied right before high school. When I became a boxer, I wanted to beat that guy up. I still want to.”
Revenge fantasies notwithstanding, Smith is addressing the problem through his sport rather than violence.
“I know how hurtful it is,” Smith says. “It’s not only bullying—it’s somebody being a tough guy and picking on people. If they want to be a tough guy, they should get into the ring and try it out.”
