Hollywood has set some unrealistic expectations about boxing and in the majority of their movies that portray the sport. Movies like “Million Dollar Baby”, and “The Fighter” all glorify the boxing element, and make the audience want to pick up a pair of gloves and start fighting.

Joyce Carol Oates’ short story “Golden Gloves” has many parallels between life, childbirth, and boxing.
I feel like I relate more to him than any other character because we got to see the big challenges he faced in the movie and what he did to move on and how he kept getting back up after all those times he fail. He reminds me of times when I had to face big challenges and I never gave up even if I was getting hurt.

But they spread it like how they spread now days everyone telling people about it. Another part of the parlour games was when they were doing

But he encountered many problems as time went on. He was jailed multiple times for mismanagement, putting a close on his career as a tax collector (Bailey). Before writing his hit novel, Don Quixote, Cervantes could not find much success in conceiving literature.
