Stop saying that alcohol slowed Sonny down. Sonny fought more frequently than any boxer in the history of boxing before he died. And he would always have a single focus when he prepared for a fight. Sonny was old school, a brawler like the Marciano’s before him. Ali revolutionized ” The Sweet Science.” Babe Ruth drank, did that stop him from being the home run king. Stop associating alcohol, with a persons only characteristic. Training as a fighter is a brutal discipline. When you take a break, you want to relax and have fun. When it is time to train, you focus on your training. Every human being has both good and bad within him or her. But it is how you overcome adversity, that makes people great, that makes the difference between a champion and a loser. People talk a lot of shit about Sonny. But how many people in the world can say, that they were the heavyweight Champion of the world?
