Comedian Martin Lawrence was teased relentlessly by his coach when he took up boxing as a teen - because he never landed punches on any of his opponents.

While the BAD BOYS star is proud of his efforts in the ring, he claims there were others who believe he wasn't very skilled.

He says, "I wrestled in junior high school and high school and I boxed. I think I was good, I was all right...

"My coach had a good saying: 'One thing about Martin, he ain't gonna get hit and he ain't gonna hit nobody!' I used to dance, dance, dance (in the ring)."
