Got a big break in life, when a boxing gym opened up 10 minutes from my house. Went in, talked to the owner.....and have been with the gym since 1998.
Best advice i ever got was, don't look for the superstar, or the medal winners...look for the one's fighting with heart & determination. Superstars fade away, heart lasts forever.
I think McNight fought Mesi or a couple of heavweight and cruiser prospects are you still in GA?
