The going was rough he had hia share of bad breaks but like all fighters he rather enjoyed the struggle, knowing in his heart that he was on the right side of the conflict. The fact that he was supremely victorious is of little consequence for he was ever a winner in the eyes of God win, lose or draw like all men who fight for good things.
