Below are two boxing videos that I came across today while waiting out Hurricane Irene. I was one of the few people in my area who did not lose power during the hurricane.
Both videos come from the same Youtube channel (here). I don’t recall seeing this channel before but it didn’t take long to notice several excellent videos within. If you are a fan or participant of the sweet science, you’ll likely enjoy many of the videos. I spent over an hour watching clips from the channel today.
The two videos that follow are dedicated to warriors who never backed down and continued to fight no matter what. If these videos don’t get the blood pumping, you’d better check to see if you still have a heart beat.
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.” – Theodore Roosevelt
