Manny's very active athlete. Works out nonstop. And plays basketball aside from his gym routines. It certainly keeps him in shape.

But looking at another sport that really benefits boxers is tennis. Tennis has a lot of footwork. If your flat footed, tennis is not for you. A sport that keeps you in your toes. Swings that helps your hooks and uppercuts. It keeps your eyes set on that fast moving ball and this helps you avoid punches. What do you think?
