Default Re: For anyone who has actually been in the ring share a personal true story!!

This is not about being in the ring myself, but a 16-year-old bomb-throwing grade school drop-out on my amateur team in the early '80s who was in the 147-pound final for the N.Y. Golden Gloves Championship.

He was mobbed in the dressing room by reporters before the bout. His opponent was a 26-year-old Hungarian Freedom Fighter.

They kept shouting: "Howya gonna beat a Hungarian Freedom Fighter; he stood up to Russian tanks!?

"No Nazi can beat me!"
