Three years ago, Ontario’s Tim Cronin wasn’t sure if he would ever fight again. He had started boxing as a young man of 11 at the Belleville Boxing Club, coming up through the ranks but never accomplishing anything of substance on the Canadian amateur boxing scene. He grew tired of boxing, felt stalled out as a student of the game and decided to move on from the sport. “I felt like I kind of capped out,” Cronin told BM. “I was young and dumb and still a teenager really. I was trying to figure things out. I went to school and I worked and did what teenagers do.” But the itch never went away. He couldn’t quite let the sport go. Now, three years later, he’s glad he didn’t.
