Throw Back Thursday: A PRIME James Toney.

The Godfather of the shoulder roll, a true authentic throw back fighter, Ezzard Charles, Archie Moore, Jersey Joe Walcott all in one, James would have been a world champion in ANY era, he got better against TOUGH competition, took non title fights to stay sharp, his non title defenses were tougher than Roy Jones Jr. title defenses back then. He was at his best against Iran Barkley, PURE art in that fight. James could adapt, fought VERY relaxed & calm, could fight of the ropes, sick fast body head combos, could stand right in front of a fighter and make them look dumb while returning neck snapping power back in return. No middleweight fights close to a style like this today, displays such old school skill and ring generalship, prowess, and savvy. James “Lights Out” Toney could fight! Watch and learn from this old school master.

Flash Back Thursday: WAR-Round Of The Year In 1990!

I remember this fight, Mark Breland was the best amateur ever with a 110-1 record! He won the Worlds in 1982, and the Olympic Gold in1984, he was different as a pro though…Who could forget what Aaron Davis’ eye looked like?! Great war, and the sound of the KO, that crack, chilling! The violence of the ring evident in this war.

I miss Alex Wallau, he was a great commentator….

Rob’s Rant: Find Yourself.

It’s funny on how some people preach character they simply don’t possess. People really are different today. A lot of fakes, I have met people I have heard a great deal about and walked away like what? Really? Why?

In an age where people will inflate others worth, promoting their products, image etc, character must be displayed not simply trusted, as what they truly know does.

Just like I see some coaches who read a lot of books, good books, rave about them but they do not change themselves with that knowledge contained in them, or produce anyone why? Because that’s real.

They obviously aren’t.

I may be opinionated but those that know me know I am the same and more so than I am on here.

We have been in an age/era of illusion. That’s a fact. Because the truth in what you read and see on here is often not what you get.

Dying are real men of character and honor. Who let their actions speak for them. Within minutes of being around these men they bring you up, you feel their principle and aura of authenticity.

I have the privilege of knowing and being around a few of these men in my life. As I continue to prune and walk away from those where no privilege existed. For me, less is more. Less bullshit, drama, backstabbing and let down from that.

I see some preach individuality yet they have no voice or image of their own. For them alone is fear.

Where for leaders being alone is enlightenment, a time of reflection on themselves and reality. A time to regather their strength as they cherish this time.

I remember reading an old interview of the late great Emmanuel Steward where when asked what was one of his favorite things to do was? He said he enjoyed being alone.

I understand why he did now when then when reading that I then didn’t.

One of the biggest things I’m proud of in my life is that I never followed the crowd, I wasn’t a follower, I didn’t be friend those seemingly superior than me to make myself feel better by being in their click.

I rebelled against that shit. I have walked away from things I was apart of but soon found the truth of and waltzed away from that shit. Being around those with real character you gain the ability to sense those who possess none keeping them at arms reach, not allowing them in your life. People are energy suckers. Don’t let them drain you.

I have felt better in the gym recently than I have in months because I kicked a few dud students out that inlet linger too long. Oh my soft side can show. They disgusted and enraged me when they were in my presence because I knew they were fake. You can only help the willing.

That boosted my energy.

I have recently had a couple bad people that were semi involved in my life practically disappear. Not a surprise as my energy and positive vibration rose. That repelled them. Energy/vibration is powerful.

Spend more time alone, find then embrace your true identity, you will find you will need less seeing reality and peoples true character for what it really is.

There is not always power in numbers, but dilution, delusion, and deceit.

The biggest sin in life is never knowing yourself and having an identity.

So instead of liking someone’s post on here, try liking yourself, stop living through others acts and scripted lives on here and start scripting your own.

Individuality starts IN word, by being alone.

Develop some character and honor in this time so you can bring more of that back in this world of shallown puppets.

Yea I had a lot to say in this post because I am waking up more everyday to life, society, and reality. Just some ramblings from me.

I’m hoping you can too while creating your own while learning/finding your own self.

Become and live real.

Rob’s Rant: Let Go Of The Past-Life Is Now.

Too many people live and don’t let go off the past. The past is the past. and Past glory is just that, PAST glory, it can still be respected today and should but not fucking celebrated like it just happened, the fact of the matter is, that it means shit as of now, the present.

It says everything you need to know about somebody who won’t let go of what they once did, reliving it everyday to this day, they haven’t grown since then and done shit with then selves since then to let that moment be a great moment it was IN the past.

These types often look down at others who haven’t accomplished what they once did, while the ones they look down on are proud of what they are piece by piece accomplishing in the present living better than them, getting better day by day, not fading away while holding on because they know they have to let go to receive more and more, while giving a fuck about their past, just learning from it, the good and bad, letting it go, where it belongs, while embracing/living in the present which is building a future they need not waste time yearning for.

We don’t look down at anyone, we are too busy looking forward, onward, eagerly anticipating to what is next, as we live today and do today, not caring what once was, that is dead, today is now which is your real truth worth.
