Default How the mighty have fallen

Haye lost to Klitschko and is being derided. Froch fighting Ward in Atlantic City.

I feel for all three of these guys. They have all provided a huge amount of entertainment and inspiration to me. Some have made their mistakes, haven't we all.... but all of these warriors deserve better.

The only way I'd be disgusted with Haye is if he took the money and ran. Winners don't do that, they find a way to get back to the top, especially if they're only 31. Winners never quit and quitters never win - Tone Loc.

I think this is good for Froch if he wins oh boy the plaudits for him will be emotional. This fella is something special his attitude is so refreshing and he's a blessing in this sport that's been taken over by greed and fighters seeking fame more then legacy.

Haye i think should take a month or two off and if he really doesn't have hunger inside him to fight on then i hope he doesn't. Don't wanna see him in there just fighting for money. If he's hungry and hurting still over this loss i hope he makes a 3 fight plan which involves top guys at HW. 3 fights in a year something he rarely does and then see where he's at. If he's no closer to the Klits then he can jack it in and say i tried but i was a decent HW and lost to best of that era.

I think the word 'mighty' is perhaps stretching it a bit.

I agree. Whatever happens with Froch he will always have my respect, the man is a rock and has overcome adversity under fire. I hope Haye does a bit more because I know he is capable of it but if it isn't in him, then he needs to quit now. He's provided plenty of entertainment along the way and achieved levels most can only dream of.

OK. Napoleon Hill. Who gives a ****? It's still an apt statement that I admire.

How about this? "Most people have attained their greatest success just one step beyond their greatest failure"

I think you'll find Tone Loc 'borrowed' that saying from the great NFL coach Vince Lombardi.

Tone Loc, fffff....
