One take at a time

About The Author

"Boxing is the ultimate challenge. There's nothing that can compare to testing yourself the way you do every time you step in the ring," said Sugar Ray Leonard. Growing up engrossed in sports, it was the compelling narrative of the Mike Tyson documentary that first pulled me into the magnetic world of boxing. This sentiment perfectly encapsulates for me the allure of boxing. This initial spark was further kindled by the unparalleled prowess and strategy of Floyd Mayweather, offering me a deeper appreciation for the sweet science. I am Mrinal, a senior writer for Boxing at EssentiallySports. Over 800 articles and countless live events later, covering moments like the thrilling KSI vs Tommy Fury bout and the epic Canelo Alvarez vs Jermell Charlo showdown remain close to my heart. My journey as a national-level football player has enriched my perspective, allowing me to draw parallels between the discipline, dedication, and spirit inherent in both sports. Beyond the ringside drama, I train occasionally, letting my gloves narrate stories of punches and parries. And while the boxing world continues to unfold its tales, I'm here, dedicated to translating these sagas for readers, capturing the essence and legacy of the sport with reverence.
