Mayweather, Jr. and Pacquiao have developed training regimes, fighting styles, and reputations, which label them as great fighters and analysis of these attributes distinguishes who is the greatest.

There is a moment early in "Cinderella Man" when we see Russell Crowe in the boxing ring, filled with cocky self-confidence, and I thought I knew what direction the story would take. I could not have been more mistaken. I walked in knowing nothing about Jim Braddock, "The Bulldog of Bergen," whose riches-to-rags-to-riches career inspired the movie. My friend Bill Nack of Sports Illustrated, who just won the A.J. Liebling Award, the highest honor a boxing writer can attain, could have told me all about Braddock, but I am just as happy to have gone in cold, so that I could be astonished by Crowe's performance.

My first wrestling match was a duel meet with one of our rival schools, Coral Gables; they weren’t the best but it served me well on applying the techniques I learned on those couple of weeks that passed. I weighed in that day 103 pounds, I was a light weight. And the lightest weight class is always the last one to wrestle.so I got to watch some matches before I wrestled which made me even more anxious. Finally it was my turn to show everybody what I got. The team score was dead even, so all the pressure was on my match, which even got me more pumped up.
