Eric’s pen portrait speaks of familial abuse - both as a victim and perpetrator – and describes the ‘deep’ appeal of the boxing gym as a site for establishing an identity that denies and defies victimization. Eric’s story illustrates the destructiveness of gym life, and the serious negative impacts that this can have upon men’s bodies and minds.
