You can always count on hard hitting wisdom from the mind of boxing trainer and fight commentator Teddy Atlas. Here's what he told Joe Rogan in a recent interview last year:
"You are not in a real fight, a real game, or real life itself, unless there is resistance, unless there is pressure, unless there is something to overcome. Otherwise, it's just an exhibition."
This is a lesson that great fighters, great athletes, and great people have all come to understand.
Greatness is re-defined every day by those all around us.
ABOUT TEDDY ATLAS: Learned the craft from the legendary Cus D'Amato. Trained Mike Tyson early in his career and Wilfred Benitez late. Was boxing analyst for Wednesday and Friday Night Fights on ESPN2. Was boxing analyst for NBC's Olympic coverage.
