He uses words that are not wishy-washy, instead firm, on one side of pride or the other. Some such words are “proud” and “particular shame” when describing Paret and “brave” when describing the referee that eventually stopped Griffith from pounding Paret all the way into the ground. By using concrete words that have a firm standing in the reader’s mind, Mailer logically convinces those reading, and who possibly have not formed their own opinions about boxing yet, that the sport itself is one filled to the brim with integrity, even the death of Benny Paret has a proud, fierce air about it. The description of his death is still proving the point of integrity in boxing because it maintains the understanding that Paret is one of the strongest fighters, and that all can be brought down. He continues this understanding that began in the first paragraph with “unusual ability to take a punch” with the phrase describing his death being “he went down more slowly than any fighter had ever gone down, he went down like a large ship which turns on end and slides second by second into its grave.” By keeping Paret as a strong figure throughout the piece, he maintains the integrity of the sport through describing what believes is one of the strongest fighters.

It was easy, we had won 4-1. It was a sweep, I scored a goal, and then tyler scored 3. Our next opponent was Watertown. Everytime we play them it is like a WWE fighting match. I don’t even think people care for the ball, they want to hit someone as hard as they can.

“The Great Dempsey” “A champion is someone who's ready when the gong rings- not just before, not just after- but when it rings.” This quote represents Jack Dempsey because he was always prepared and worked very hard to earn world titles many times.

Therefore, he is powerful for the very reason that he is “untouchable.” He does not use the power for kindness but uses it to show who is best and in a bullying matter. Curley is not a kind fellow and not a lot of people are his friend in the book. He is described as a “thin young man with a brown face and a head of tightly curled hair.” Candy, in the beginning of the book, indicates that Curly is a boxer and likes to make trouble and fights especially with bigger men. He is not very nice towards his newly wedded wife either. The book does not give her a name and refers to her as “Curley’s wife”.

Our coach is a strong believer that in order to be successful as a team, it is important to support each other like a family. This familial atmosphere and support that I received from my fellow teammates was the reason I went to compete at OFSAA my first year of wrestling. Not only did I earn a spot at OFSAA that year, I also competed at the Cadet/Juvenile Provincial Championships. Although, I did not place at this tournament, it was an excellent learning experience that I will never forget. In grade 10, I earned the Marauder award for wrestling, which was a true honour, simply because most of the time the Marauder award and the MVP award are usually given to a grade 12 on the team.
Mike Tyson was faced with many roadblocks before he claimed the title for the world 's youngest heavyweight boxer. A deadbeat dad, gangs, juvenile courts, and even jail time were simply not enough to prevent Tyson from becoming one of the most successful individuals to ever step into a boxing ring. The hard work put into boxing allowed Tyson to rise above the conditions that he was forced to survive in.
