When that bell rang, I wanted to go out there and do my thing.
Boxing was not the sport that I thought is was due to all the politics.
I am seeing all the guys, like Earnie Shavers, Tex Cobb, and Larry Holmes all the time.
By the time you're 30 years old, you can be on a nowhere street, if you're not careful.
I was a left hooker, and I loved hooking. I also really liked to jab and mix it up right away.
Roberto Duran was the kind of guy who was a true fighter and you hardly see guys like that anymore.
I lost three times in my career. Losing to Holmes I could deal with, because I lost to a true champion.
I was a small kid from Huntington, Long Island. I never imagined that anything like that would happen to me.
Muhammad Ali was the kind of guy you either loved or hated, but you wanted to see him. I happen to really love him. He brought boxing to another level and always made you laugh.
You have a small period of time when you can perfect your career and become good at it. A lot of guys get distracted, which only hurts them. You must stay focused and work very hard at boxing.
