For good reason's too. He's extremely pleasant to be around now, but don't get me wrong, he won't hessitate to tell you to go f yourself, or to throw you out of the gym (by hand or just threats that he will live up to). He really gets mad when people start mouthing off and challenging him into the ring, or they beat on guys a lot worse than them, and then brag about it. Last year someone did that, and Larry said thats it, get my gear. Larry went in there, jabbed the person once, they were knocked down, and 2 hours later found out they had a concussion.
