Chad Johnson got a late start as a fighter. He trains at Eastside Boxing, a gym where trainers hope to change young people’s lives through boxing. Johnson, who works as a banker, is an amateur, but hopes someday to get 20 fights as a professional boxer. Sunday evening finds Chad alone at the gym near 36th and Lottie, working on a punching bag behind a window full of boxing trophies.
