Imprisoned for 26 years for some shit he didn't do?! Im sure he has a list of asses that he wants to kick. Im sure its longer than 50 Cent's two front teeth, lol. As it shows, he's a very patient man, but he may be somebody totally different in the ring...feel sorry for his first few opponents (IMG:style_emoticons/default/no2.gif)

They had him on the Espy awards telling his story. He seemed to be alright back in his day. Best of luck to him.

Very inspirational person....he was under guidance of an old light heavyweight fighter named James Scott who I've personally never seen fight but was a good light heavyweight contender back in the days of Qawi, Mathew Saad Muhammad, Spinks, Yanqu Lopez, Marvin Johnston, Eddie Mustafad Muhammad....

And I find it fucking awesome that he wants to open a gym and pass on his wisdom to kids and teach them the Sweet Science...god bless him...Boxing is pretty much life....

Boxing is beautfiul..

Hard not to root for this guy after reading his story. Just goes to show how unfair the world truly is.

...and just to know that he's still motivated to make something of himself 26 years later, shows what kind of person he is. A prison term of that length would crush anybody...hell, a prison sentence of any length (short-term or long) would do a few people in.
