Two Lives in Boxing
Then & Now: Eric McGuire & Mike Johnson
In 1982 Eric McGuire was eleven years old and learning to fight at the Ann Arbor Boxing Club. In a photo in the Observer that February, McGuire is a couple of feet shorter than the club's older boxers. He's wearing a cutoff football jersey and his arms hang loosely by his sides, ending in a pair of gigantic boxing gloves that look far too large for him.
