    Let me tell you something you already know, Greb!!! The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It is a very mean and nasty place and it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or something nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t 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. Now, if you know what you’re worth, then go out and get what you’re worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hit, and not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you are because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain’t you. You’re better than that! - Rocky

    This particular part of this thread should be removed, because Jack Dempsey's manager, Jack Kearns would still be ducking the damn fight.

    Pretty good snippets about both in general, from the old newspapers, for anyone interested.

    Dempsey couldn't beat Greb with a whip and a chair.
