The statement above indicates an ability, skill, or temperment for a sport, it has NOTHING to do with "Bred". People are not Bred to be Boxers! They happen onto the sport in different ways. Dogs are Bred, People are not. No one is Bred to fight. Any talk of Breeding or Bred is either about animals, a Figure of Speech or something out of a SCI-FI Movie. You must have been born and "bred" in the briar patch. That in case you haven't figured out is an idiom.
How's getting knocked off your soapbox feel..
