Denis Cherry beat cancer and aches from arthritis, but he punches above his weight

"I've had both my knees replaced — but that had nothing to do with my boxing — both my wrists I've got to wrap them up, my shoulders get sore, it's not bad for somebody with unlimited ability like I've got," he said.

On April 7, he will fight Graham Prowse on the under card when junior middleweight Dennis 'Hurricane' Hogan takes on Jimmy Kilrain Kelly for the WBO intercontinental title at the Brisbane Convention Centre.

"Graham Prowse is a highly respected fighter in the masters, he's had over 200 fights, Graham. Very, very good.

"He's the current over 60, 75 kilogram world champion — he won that about 14 months ago."

Cherry is using the event to raise money for seven-year-old Sean Senbel-Lynch who has cerebral palsy.

Sean's father Liam Lynch said the family needed to raise $70,000 by the end of the year for an operation in the United States that will help him walk on his own for the first time.

"There is a specialist procedure that's only done over in the US which is minimal invasion," Mr Lynch said.

Reducing anxiety through selfcontrol, selfaffirmation. This boils down to getting a grip on yourself, and giving yourself as much support as you can muster. 'I use lots ...

Arthritis, 300 Tips for Making Life Easier

Wear rubber gloves to make it easier for weak hands to grasp objects. They also help protect your hands from chemicals when cleaning and from the cold when handling frozen or refrigerated foods. To make the gloves easier to put on and take off, sprinkle a little cornstarch inside each one. If they're still difficult to remove, try holding your hands under cold water and then pulling them off. If one of the gloves gets a hole in it (usually the one for your dominant hand), keep the mate.
