I just found his humanity being at odds with his being a great pro fighter.
A complex person was Roy I always thought.
I wasn't implying that.

Just pointing out that being tough is not mutually exclusive of harboring sympathetic emotions.

There's two sides to every coin, if you will. One cannot exist without the other.
