A Boxer Is Born

Brownsville, Brooklyn native Curtis Stevens has been boxing since he was 5, but he shifted his energy to football by the time he reached Samuel J. Tilden High School, where he was a star middle backer. “My uncle didn’t understand that I just wanted to play football, even after practice he still made me train for boxing,” Stevens told BET.com.
