Life Is a Fight

Below is a brief video that tells the story of former world champion Vinny Pazienza (often known as Vinny Paz). Growing up in New England, Paz was a household name in the 80’s and 90’s. He was a huge draw in the world of boxing as Paz always put on a show. Win or lose, the fans could always expect him to fight with the heart of a lion.

His accomplishments are clearly impressive, but perhaps most impressive is the fact that he came back from a near fatal car accident that snapped his neck in two places and dislocated it in another. Following the accident, doctors told Paz he would never fight again. Logic certainly supported their position. Fortunately for the fans, Vinny Paz once again chose to defy logic.

Whether you are a boxing fan or not, most will agree that life is a fight. There are times when you need to fight back to determine your own future.

    You, me or nobody, is gonna hit as hard as life. But ain’t about how hard you hit… It’s about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward… how much you can take, and keep moving forward. [/i]

    Paz is the real deal.
