I am a fair fighter, and I want to fight fair. If you can beat me, hey, I’ll be the first to shake your hand but don’t cheat me. Don’t take what I worked so hard for if you don’t deserve it.

Indiana and Reggie were a match made in heaven. — Cheryl Miller

Mentally, it has been a struggle. The business side of this boxing is horrible and I think it has taken my best years of boxing.

But I still try to present them in the ring to the best of my ability. — Chris Byrd

There’s only one way to get experience – get in the ring and get over the fear of being in the ring and in front of a crowd. — Kirby Sundheim

I’d usually add stuff in. That’s why I tell you I like to get in the fantasy art. Say a small girl, a ring of flowers around her or a bunch of vines.

But there were some who resisted. A Last Alliance of Men and Elves marched against the armies of Mordor and on the slopes of Mount Doom, they fought for the freedom of Middle Earth. Victory was near. But the power of the Ring could not be undone. — J. R. R. Tolkien

I would be a liar if I said my desire to get back into the ring had never waned, — Richard Williams
