Jimmie is a relentless worker in the gym. Even after a hard fight, he's already back in the gym, training kids, adults and himself.
"I don't like taking time off. I like getting right back in there. Stitches, bumps, bruises, it doesn't matter. I want to get back into training. You hurt one limb, you got three other limbs that you can work on."
