Making the Rounds –
June 17, 2020 – Hall’s love of boxing began when he was around 6 years old. His father bought a pair of boxing gloves each for Hall and his two brothers, because he wanted his sons to be tough. Hall’s father would bring in other boys from the neighborhood and have them fight against his sons, and Hall fell in love with the sport immediately. But starting in the summer following his fifth grade year in school, fighting started to take a back seat to drugs. He began selling crack cocaine when he was 12, and boxing sparring sessions turned into street fights. Hall’s skills translated well to the less official brawls, and he began to develop a reputation around Athens.
