Description

From the pages of Dark Trade

"There're a lot of people you have to keep away from, a lot of people who want to bring you down. They're cheats and critics wherever you look."--Oscar De LA Hoya

"I still love boxing because I want to be the very best. But you can also make a lot of money if you love your work. So I thank GOD each and everyday that I have a job I would do for free."--Evander Holyfield

"There were enough precedents in boxing history to suggest that a father was rarely the best judge in building his sons career. Where some fight-fathers are braver than their sons, others are overly cautious."--Donald McCrae (author)

"Most boxers remain victims. Deep down they know they're fated to lose. It does not matter how many millions they make or how many worlds titles they might win. In the end, almost always, no matter how hard they train or obstain boxing gets them."--Donald McCrae (author)

"'Hello, Mike, '" I said. 'Yeah, ' he answered as he tapped me on the shoulder with a bunched fist. It didn't even hurt. 'We talkin'?' I nodded. Tyson grunted and swept past me into the gym. The door slammed behind him and his entourage. I was alone again, and it felt like I had, somehow, survived round one."--Donald McCrae (author)
