Michael Hunter coughed. He sneezed. He took breaks from training.
The Las Vegan and heavyweight boxer wasn’t 100 percent at Team USA’s training session on Thursday at Score Gym in a neighboring town of Leyton, but never paused when asked if fighting a cold will hamper his chances at medaling in London.
“I’ll take care of business one fight at a time,” Hunter said. “I’m a fighter. I fight through everything. It’s how I got here — fighting through adversity.”
I will have a column on Hunter’s long and at times mistake-filled journey to this Olympic moment in the Aug. 1 editions of the Review-Journal. Hunter will fight for the first time in London that day.
The draw for the Olympics boxing tournament is Friday.
