Supernatural Pugilism: Mike Perez's Religious Quote Spotlight
In the lead-up to Alexander Povetkin VS Mike Perez, Mike said this mouthful about religion, as it pertains to the sport, airing on ESPN2 & 3:
"It doesn't matter what you believe in. I believe in God. But if I don't throw a punch, God won't win the fight for me."
As poignant as three sentences can be, when discussing the combination of religion and boxing, I would say of this quote. You could easily broaden it to any sport, or any pursuit in life, for that matter, and it would translate. The trying is up to you, whether you believe in God or the the man in the moon. It didn't go well for Mike today, but at least he knows it was up to him to try, win or lose, and he did try.
