“I knew nothing about boxing when I started really, and I knew that in order for me to pull it off in any way, I was just gonna have to learn to do it,” Jake said (via People). “And when I set my mind to something I just won’t stop until I do it. It’s something I pride myself on, and it’s something I hate about myself.”
