Mike talks about how he started boxing and why he chose it as a sport.
Fill in the missing phrases that you will hear.
1. Mike: Well, from a young age, from about the age of twelve, I started doing karate in Vancouver and I was training in karate for about seven or eight years and then once I graduated from high school I moved and I moved to Japan and there I continued and didn't have much time   but I got involved in the kick boxing circle with some friends that did a lot of kick boxing and different types of martial arts.
2. Mike: Well, I was never   of amateur fights and I don't think people quite understand how much goes into one fight because leading up to the fight, a couple of months before the fight, a friend of mine and I would be training at least five times a week.
3. Mike: Well, especially with boxing, you get a lot of head injuries and more so over time because unlike other   , boxing is designed to keep you standing and taking hits and that's why you see a lot of professional boxers as they get older and near the end of their career or even after their career, a lot of them have severe brain damage. Their speech is impeded and you can tell that they've really done some damage to their head over the years.
