Re: Is Heart The Single Most Important Attribute If A Fighter Is To Become An ATG?
Firstly, you want the talent, or at least some good building blocks, or you aint going nowhere.
Then as a good fighter, you can do very well, defeating average competition. But to get beyond good to great you have to also have heart.
Lets face it, any ATG has talent and heart. Both are needed to gain this exceptional status. Different ATGs had slightly different balances of both.
A couple of quotes on the subject:
"A champion is someone who gets up when he can't." - Jack Dempsey
"To be a legendary fighter, you have to beat the opponent it is impossible for you to beat." - Chris Eubank (referring to Benn vs McClellan)
