There is something about boxing videos and movies. All the Rocky movies and Million dollar baby still echo in the mind when I think of boxing.

The words that came to my mind after watching this were Tenacious and Dogged: The guy just does not give up! And being tenacious and dogged is all about persistence and perseverance, just about never giving up.

No more theoretical description for this one: watch more and connect with the emotions.
