Description of the content The boxers have survived the bombardment on Rotterdam. Bep van Klaveren, the man who had a lot of success in the US in the 1930s, is their idol. They still train two times a week, if necessary even with extra oxigen. Most of the time they have harsh comments for each other, this is always paired with a lot of humor.
