****

 

“To get hit and hurt, that was the worst thing in my life besides being an orphan. Like I didn’t know who my parents was. As far as I was concerned, anybody could have been my father and mother. I had to go through the rest of my life not knowing where I did come from. And then to be alone like that in the ring….”

Matthew Saad Muhammad to John Schulian, 1985

    These are perhaps the most affecting words I’ve read from a fighter. How incredibly sad.
