Does this amazing thousands, about your training, like this discipline and peace. This thing and is pushing yours but you ve, always known your whole life pushing beyond what do you mean you can imagine how much a role

You don't get no bad happens, so you'll have to cease net and so the whole thing in forging a day. You know, I don't think you with great being poor but her, but but you know allowing time when you poor people, people chests and so the whole big thing is, so you have to hang out with a man like you and mom mom. Would not let me hang out with people who cursing idiot all these things, so I am not become better cause. I was sitting there by myself all the time people live a better life. They want to hang out what me and where the people, the people that had a rough light out now- and I thought I would better than when you look
Your career, what what stands out for you as the most of filling aspect of being a fighter all these years? Why make an olympic thing so represent America yeah, you know it, but you know you know, because we was amateur and so everybody won't be. Who want to be one in twelve members who go make them on pertain and I think our lands, God that make the lump obtain and we're gonna scare, because our actually find amateur world chain this Gonna Ricky Womack he beat the cuban head, beat the Russian so to people who, when they come into to lump pics and eighty forward russian and a Cuban, but this gap that they re Womack happy.
The more ready, he was a rain amateur world tempted so to get too early to beat him twice and I'll. Do it spelt incredible. Where did you don't remember havoc wholesale, but tell me said: When all is what common challenge you think you have, we rikiu wonderful, Womack and and ass a well. Did he make the Panama seventeen? He tells people they look due to paper. They say: will he lounged skins even a whole issue there? So he grabbed the paper you look at. Babies are well one thing rickety Womack had done. He never laws for us back to back. He said to me ass, I have neither Euro is just positively. The room was so important. Is that
psychological part of this game. How important is your psyche in that sense of certainty, going into a fight and also keep that, certainly when somebody's maybe stands you are they get their lands and that's that ninety percent of the whole thing how you think, when the whole thing happened, the certain you can beat him still. Why cannot, then in great shape person being greatly by you, get hit one tab and all its end is mine change almost Crises famous for their quotas says ever gonna plan to get it in the face of any change in the map of Europe. Spiritual man, you're beautiful saw wandering, though when I meet you as everybody, we're talking about, you said humbly bullfighter buddies, he's an incredible man, and I know the fighting
there's, always a spiritual side providing for you tell me what that means to. You will go in and are fighting, but it when it's about and both in the preparation side of it as well as of right. It's why it is a sad fact that they were gonna, say I let my son dive point you where you can believe, and so, if you keep believe and eventually you goes to win it and yet augurs ass, a kid. How do you keep believin if you aren't windows and the beginnings of the beginning, as only thing, I could tell people as a key out? The young is one and mobility and let me win anything and now would tell him my Mama mum, then I'll. Never let me with my mama them suppose. Shoe night is young. Our only key, though the youngest family.
The when win and nothin and two egg went to the boys LE when I got the boys. Le sickly is so I'll bill, as in the case that, when a cause, because Mama did make no adjustment one man our day- and let me know that, if you won't have you really have to work on somebody. If you can give our data kids kiss never gone? Ok, don't give me. No more people keep him. Let me also say you got another week yeah that now turned up. What do you think about this society that we become? Where parents today give kids troll as for participating becoming done any they may not. Discipline themselves are not permanent and it's like em when he deserves a trophy today. How do you feel about that philosophy and you father of eleven six girls,
boys and girls? What's your philosophy with your kids and what would you think of this once we have really gets trophy, no matter what for participating? Well, I think that, even though They may get a war but as apparent job to let them know. Ok, then what did you do and and soak? So? Where can you know and peeping or reject not now serpents, and I need to know this ass, a kid I will go to the fight I'll go to the flight. And I hope my guide and show up? I want my gotta show where I wouldn't happen, because I know if I go to find them and we will do this. All these things come with the fight you haven't bought, but that the rapporteur despite our hope in my guiding show up and his shoulder barrier
I've been thinking about afterwards. They were saying about. The thing is that you want, but you still have to go through that which gave you even more companies that you could do it again, every five out of their like the poorest fight. You say you grow ass, the appeal to sing the intense they get greater and greater like that. How do you keep increasing you're intensity over the decades web? Because you know, there's repetition, make you better and you think you can get a better view practicing you get better repetitions, the queue mastery of anything, but if you keep give doing you started a different level started the Lebanese keep grown from areas at the Essen summit, because you know you don't forget that in practice- and I just think if you stop asking did it may not only the whole and you stop asking if you keep asking that, like you know
the warning about hunger? Where does that we're coming from you that you still haven't fifty eight years old, the hunger they get you to me? Will you do in two days? Did the eight years all the time needed to prepare for what does that hunger comes Every person I've ever man who is extraordinary and business and finance and entertainment. One thing they have as this hunger? There is insatiable. You clearly have an eye by what you say, but where you live, where does that hunger come from, whereby thank the aerobatic error that anything that you gotta hungry too? You know, but then that you have. This is reason why you know somebody may try to be like you and it's hot as a joy for you to do. It is easy. By Euro Zone, because you love is the same thing get up early in the morning to serve like this. I can at four o clock in the morning I get up in red,
word and all this to prepare meaningful what the day, maybe you know that so many people that want a better life but thinking about it and as migrant oftentimes even make a decision to do it. But to me, The thing that missing is the rituals and you got rituals that you drove in use. Don't break em like forty most people that he get it before. I got a better for five hundred to four times on the need to give, but the same kind of discipline that, like you know you do you, give it every single time corner rituals to being the best in the world at something, but that there are important because they start by habit. He out now, oh heavens, not bear right. I'm a good abbot now uses, when you're, not even China into the body and a bad, have you know filling when you don't even know you fell like that. So this is the reason why you have parents. What are you talk to order? habits that throughout your life have caused
growing in succeeding. They love that that have what Lord Jesus Christ, Mamma Mamma told me a moment. I want you better. Stop calling you know in a day but to me when I was a kid, my mobile outcry, and all this my I thought my mama can say me: vanity, monthly, reputation, boy. You bet historical Jesus, why they did so and so the first time I know they're Jesus were Mama openly and our colleges don't stop. So is it has a miracle by itself why that was held in the first,
My loss of by an end is geared beat me, nay, nay, cease account how early hours eleven Levin. While then he beat me when I was twelve, he still members men, and the same guy that same guy be MIKE Tyson, the purser when he stopped boxing he's not box at thirteen. When I've been a b them at thirteen and in only two years to be dependent on oil. We are Baden colleges. Please help me bill
Europe, I won't leave everything to try to beat him tutor beaten into their right, so colleges and afore I witnessed by so hidden find a more and ninety ninety six. When I come home, I walk in house ass. He is why Gus Cindy go cease. An airbag shoe. You still remember you for the first time that a bit man welcome by the Mouth Bob Bob six way by a hundred Borlsover bow and steel industry? enhancing wages hanging like this. I remember that
I would really what happens when you fighters both calling Jesus. Why? Why do you know Please give me the strict secrecy world will owes me toward former nearby dimension. You know joys, nutrition, to those who go, go go for ass, we have jointly if we change before they also gaining the added tone as most of you. But you know about Great Box and L. A budget man is that you just you got such a beautiful heart. I know you said under each non Christian and rose with aids. Religious belief is you. You leave your faith than he was telling me that you send out every morning like for em, you send out another piece of the Bible too, like three or four people's than you do by what this mission that its informally come back. You know
I feel that if so, you have to be thankful for what he gave you yes and now I see a lot of people just like yourselves, be real well known, ass, a man! Oh, I get that. Give didn't ask that thing about. You had to be happy with which you got here, and this is hard thing. This is how you get a bit more. You have be thankful unhappy for TAT. Do you party or philosophy, is the limit of beautiful statement of happy state a bridge the aid grateful state. So how do you balanced out would kill somebody? You know a lot of people may think a boxing day and understand the level of discipline in arms and the art perished in there's a set of combinations. He others patterns here, there's thinking here and there's an arc here. You know it's been called the Sweet Science box. Read my reading martial arts in August. I worked a lot of work Yours, like all right boxers athletes, you see guys than the level of discipline, is insane my
you are going to review them recently and likes talked about how he was cut it. It was forced the game. You know you was shaped by people who feels didn't really look out when they turn him into a killer and he doesn't want to be a killer, and so it's like he's gone to this Our position is life of hating that part of himself that gotten homes you gotta be able destroys somebody You seem to be able destroy him in the ring and still level item afterwards. It seems like the bankers do that. You balance that wasn't as dismal shit. You know like thing is: is the bank this you taken a chance, so light has taken account of autumn, as is almost like walkin in faith? You you got you man to teach your family. You know you got.
Great job, where you could teach of and so consistently somebody else won't Joe Joe S and then airbag competing pajama. Yes, and so you know you your job. Just as important is mind you cause, you got that you have a family got you gotta, be and so in this life of really about, and but they got the enemy enemy strategy. Yet look at people scan Calais High. Do why he got a job. I had a job and then and Euro God made people and we may people made whereby it is saying and they just got different colours and and but have a job is about conquer, to make you hate this person. If you take this person, you get some biologists. Maybe they'll can take advantage, of course, but the fact of the matter, if you do the right thing in writing, gonna happen for you. So what's your advice now to the kids,
You talk work as you ve lived of such a full life right. What are you try to steer them too? When you get a chance to influencing and you I want to Levin children yourself, I would advise Emily girls, six boys bagger as well we must now do is in a buys. It ain't, no good manners. I did ass, you know you, you tellin, stir up what six out there and what not with black about this. How you look like: what's your philosophy as a father, will you try to instil in your children when you ve learned what what I have learned? Love is too cheap, I'm so sorry about something that I look now. My mama wanted me to advise that. I'm not something that you like how you can like a lot of things and there's reason you may not become successful. Yes, but you find somebody, you got me, secession Love is what love is our guidance. Luck with your brother under them. I think no one percent of our members gorgeous. So what what's one the fights in Europe
really that so many words when it stands out, because today and I talk to people about the best story of humanity's the comeback story right does anybody can succeed or get lucky but being taken here these like com. It has done to so many people as it never come back Well, that's what excites every human being authorities to arouse the guy comes back. They pushed
and they get better than they were before. What let's but what's been comeback story for you what's wrong with tough ones, for you that your proudly enable come back room where what is our particular? If I could add laws Lamb tat, but but in fact, at a time that, along with time where that over time, where that I actually kind of which was not sure- because you know I knew my shoulders her when the gas it I'll find not thought, I could beat them even are contributing their path. Kiki near you have done I've done things like that in Europe, so boosted, and why you tell him about ass. It were come. It's my fault. I knew the adapt. Why would you want me? Just read it in mind to react to a fine guys that was surrounded me and I thought I could beat him even though our
I wanted to say I said, then I go so what you do after that? What do you do after you have disappointed yourself and you, because everybody does a time I was told people it's like success, has always emphasised a frustration, the oversight of rejection on the other side of failure, rights like the ability pushed through it. So when you come back in one those giving and one that was really rough how'd, you get yourself back. You go back to the top actual peak again when the thing is with you, you Eddie Justified, then this is what I, whether this is well.
