"I saw ‘Rocky’ the night before my first professional fight. February 5th, 1977, at the Baltimore Civic Center. I remember like it was yesterday. Even though I was not the underdog, it still spoke volume to all fighters because we tried to be somebody. We’re trying to get out of that hole. But you can only do so many sequels, because you kind of lose that magic and touch -- that little thing that you can’t explain, but you know it's there."
