"One Glove is more about our internal battles rather than the sport of boxing. Whatever it is, fighting to be someone we're not, wanting to fit in, longing for acceptance, or just waiting to be loved. Then one day something becomes very clear in our lives.  The thought that we may not all be equally made but that we are all uniquely different and beautifully created. To embrace our individual complexities, find love and understanding, that is the victory each of us has to offer.  At that point in life, it is time to take the gloves off!" – John Wilson
