“I don’t count my sit-ups. I only start counting when it starts hurting. That’s when I start counting, because then it really counts. That’s what makes you a champion.”
During the heart of the Golden Era of boxing, Muhammad Ali spent his time training at Deer Lake, Pennsylvania, a tiny hamlet away from the bustle of daily life. It was in Deer Lake, through countless hours of sweat and toil, Ali became the great champion of the ring. Legends are born in the quiet of resolve.
