  • Josh opens up about what it’s like to be an amateur in the boxing ring—a ring surrounded by hundreds of onlookers ready for a fight. Round for round and pound for pound, he documents each blow.
  • Shelby puts on her reporter hat and describes the fight from the crowd’s perspective.
  • Josh and Shelby have a post-fight discussion, which hints at a possible concussion, the expectation of a knockout and what it means to prove yourself worthy of a title.

Favorite Quote From This Episode:

“As a young leader, a first-time manager of people here, it’s about proving to myself that I am deserving of being, ya know, the first one into the foxhole…So I think that doing a bold thing like taking up boxing and actually fighting someone, I think that that’s proof.”
