HAMILTON, New Zealand — Caroline and Lani Daniels are sisters and boxing competitors who train every day of the week — except Sunday.

According to Waikato Times, the Daniels sisters were raised members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and their mother has two rules for them: They can't train on Sunday and they can't fight each other.

"Mum would rage if we ever fought against each other, and we decided early on that we would never fight each other," Caroline Daniels told the Waikato Times.

Caroline began boxing two years ago at a charity event, and Lani joined soon after.

The sisters box in different weight grades, so they don't have to fight each other, the Waikato Times reported.
