Suspecting he has wasted his talent yet finding reasons to believe he’ll one day cash in on the vast potential he once showed.

Assuring others he’s still relevant even though you don’t quite believe it yourself anymore.

Trying hard not to feel that way about boxing these days, but a pair of bouts from this past weekend…” (By Morgan Campbell)
