"Mum, can I join that new boxing club on Sycamore Avenue?" "I don't want you going into that area, it's really rough around there, particularly at night."
"But it would be good for me." "Ha! Good for you! Matthew, boxing is for hooligans."
"But boxing is a noble art." "Noble art! Pfft. I've never heard such nonsense. Noble art my elbow." "Boxing teaches you discipline and respect for your opponent, Mum."
"Discipline and respect for your opponent, you say?" "Yep."
"Maybe you could give it a try, I suppose." "Great! Now I'll be able to smash Tommy Hunter's face in."
