Mr Lou Duva. World Champion Boxing Trainer. He has trained some of my favorite fighters of all time. Names like Evander Holyfield, Pernell Whitaker, Arturo Gatti and Lennox Lewis to name a few. He is also the master of many great quotes. Some about boxing, some about life but all entertaining. Here are a few:
“He’s a guy who gets up at 6:00 in the morning regardless of what time it is.”
“You can sum up this sport boxing in two words: You never know.”
“Why would anyone expect Tyson to come out smarter? He went to prison for four years, not Princeton.”
Although these quotes may make you laugh, Duva was one of the best. He was an inspiration to us no matter what we are going to do. Box, play basketball, be the best accountant or whatever. He told us to go at it with our all. Take that drive to the court.
