Family, friends mourn loss, pursue change as Brayd Smith is laid to rest

The sport of boxing demands an ascetic lifestyle. For some fighters, a left jab is their late-night bite to eat and one of the first things they\'ll encounter when they wake up in the morning. That is the life for some professional fighters.

That wasn\'t Brayd Smith.

Smith was a 23-year-old man from Toowoomba, Queensland in Australia. He had a girlfriend, with whom he was loving and devout. He was targeting a law degree, and was within months from attaining that. His goal wasn\'t to feed a family off of pugilism but to indulge in the freedoms it offered. He didn\'t need boxing to survive, and boxing didn\'t save him from any harm. Yet, Braydon Smith aspired to justify the sport of boxing.
