Every Dream Chaser should attend a live professional boxing match and sit as close to the ring as possible. Last night, I attended my first boxing match at the Barclay Center in Brooklyn between Danny Garcia and Paulie Malignaggi. I'll tell you this, television does not do boxing justice! When you are there live you can really see the sweet science in action, not to mention the warrior spirit that is evident by everyone who steps in the ring. These dudes are bigger than they look on TV and much smaller than they look on TV depending on the weight class but they are all in shape. It was great seeing the sweat knocked off the heads of the fighters, feel the energy from the crowd when something happened and to hear the fans yelling out moves like they are coaches. The craziest thing was people were so amped up, there were almost three fights in the audience and two were right in front of me! I highly recommend this experience and I look forward to the next time. By the way, there were three knockouts and one draw for the fights I saw. Danny Garcia won the main event by TKO. Paulie didn't want to fight anymore.
Never Stop Dreaming!
P.S. I sat in the Garcia fan section and I saw Rosie Perez, that jeweler with diamond teeth, mike Tyson's old trainer and a few of the guys from the Sopranos.
