However, in that sports documentary, there was a moment when the seven-time Grand Slam champion talked about her father’s unorthodox training methods. The 42-year-old said, “I remember he said boxers has the best feet, and we needed a faster foot so…”

Further, even Williams’ sister’s childhood coach shared his take on training with boxers. Rick Macci added that “We even had a professional boxer in a sand pit going every day. If they didn’t move, they would get popped.”
