Robert Guerrero has returned to the boxing ring after helping care for his ailing wife: Define toughness. Punching a man in the face? Or braiding a girl's hair?

Robert Guerrero chose to braid hair, and no amount of brutal acts in the boxing ring, where Guerrero earns his living, could better measure a man's toughness.

I love stories like this that share off-field heroism in the sports world. Casey Guerrero is only 26. Hard to believe she's been through such severe health battles already. Glad the transplant has worked.

It seems almost quaint to hear a professional athlete talk about his high-school sweetheart with such obvious devotion. A really touching story.
