Los Angeles: Denzel Washington has revealed how boxing helps him fight off the stress of being an actor.

The 57-year-old says his love for remaining fit through fight training has given him the discipline needed not to take his work home with him.

"I know how to relax. That`s something they teach you in boxing. When I finish work, I take off my costume and go home and I am home," quoted Washington as saying.
