At age 36, and not using a previous expert or novice experience, Robinson is getting geared up for his first boxing match. “It’s brutal. Waking up early, walking six or seven miles, it is some thing I’ve in no way accomplished in my life, and I’m doing it at 36, so it is truely making me experience younger and energetic,” Robinson instructed ESPN. “It’s genuinely tuning me in to every other a part of myself that I in no way knew I had.
