American Heavyweight Boxing Champion
You know what a champion is? A champion is someone who's ready when the gong rings - not just before, not just after - but when it rings.
A champion is someone who gets up when he can't.
I never went to bed in my life and I never ate a meal in my life without saying a prayer. I know my prayers have been answered thousands of times, and I know that I never said a prayer in my life without something good coming of it.
