Remix Project: Speech at a boxing gym
Young athletes, you are at the bloom of an illustrious career. Some of you might decide to go pro and the rest will stay at the amateurs and that is perfectly fine because at the end of the day this sport is very brutal. However, no one can ever be entitled to giving themselves and unfair advantage in a sport as brutal as boxing. So many cases of PED abuse and even plaster in boxing gloves have tainted the beautiful sport that is boxing and its because of how brutal this sport is that we can not tolerate it further for any reason. We can go back to the infamous bout between rising prospect Billy Collins Jr. and Luis Resto. The fight went the distance and in the end Luis had beaten Billy to a bloody pulp leaving him with very horrible damage. It was discovered that Luis and his staff ha removed the padding from his gloves, Billy was being hit with bear fists for 12 straight rounds. He suffered permanent partial blindness which ended his career. This sport should not be taken lightly and most certainly should not have people like this that just want to hurt anither man and possibly take his life. Follow your dreams the right way and cement your legacy between the greats and not between the cheaters of this sport because as soon as you are labeled a cheater, your career is over and there is no salvation from that. You guys are young and ripe and i know all of you have the potential to be great, just do it the right way and not on a path of deception, thank you and have a blessed day and workout.
