Re: Your Favourite Boxing Stories ?
I forget the Boxers name shamefully.
He was scheduled to be fed to Joe Frazier. He didn't see it that way. Pacing a trench in his locker room before the fight, eyes focused, sharp like a Tiger that has spotted it's prey. An air of intensity that immediately stopped anyone in the vicinity from talking. This was his chance, it was his life.
The guy got knocked down multiple times and eventually spark out and carried back to his dressing room, where he was laid on a table and left.
About an hour later, his trainer returned to check on him. He was pacing the room, same eyes, same intensity.
" What are you doing?!" His manager asked.
" Gotta go fight Frazier haven't I."
The manager caught on immediately, "erm yeah, about that mate..."
