Bear it or get Knocked Out

“But it 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. That's how winning is done!” This is probably one of the most famous dialogues from the movie Rocky Balboa and the most accurate description to the sport of boxing. Throwing punches is not for the weak hearted person and that happens to be a fully fledged profession of some of the rare people on earth who needs a bit of screw tightening in their head. I mean, who would like to punch others or get punched at by others without any hint of animosity between them.
    But to those who live inside the ring and make a career out of it, it is not always about the money or the fame that comes with it. It is about earning respect and keeping their inner demon at peace by going through a controlled fight by wearing gloves and abiding a set of rules. Even some of them consider this as “Baptism under fire”. From Muhammad Ali to Mike Tyson and their arch rivals, everyone has earned their special spot in the heart of millions of Americans by going through something we dread. Recently Manny "PACMAN" Pacquiao fought hard against Floyd Mayweather in the “Fight of the Century” only to lose. But he earned his respect and that is everything to a man from the boxing yard.
