Tony Peligrino (above) boxes at Gleasons Gym in New York every week. At 56 he is still considered a kid in some circles, he took up boxing some ten years ago to help him lose weight but continues it for the fitness and strength it now gives him. "Now I am starting to get a lot more notoriety", he boasts, "I am older, but there's a lot of older people doing it now."
