On the ring, there's this championship match
Both craving for applause and the title
He is on his 30's while he on his 20's
The crowd stands still and then they roar
Standing and cheering for their bet
With a swift uppercut and jab...
Punches from left to right..
His foot circling round the arena..
Defending their goals and their lives..
The underdog played like it's his last
So, as to the title - holder playing mad
Knock - out, both their aiming at
Thus, they giving all what they got
The audience hot on their own seats
So, as the boxers tight fist on the ring
Sweats and blood running unstoppable
Energy on fifteen rounds, incredible!
The underdog, old with arthritic hand
Remembering his wins and lost fights
His "chance job" on the seventh docks
His kids sent to his brother's house
Inspiring and motivating, his stand..
Unanimously, he won with a good fight
His wife and kids so happy that night
In memorial of James J. Braddock, a well known American boxer
noted of his right power punches, a humble inspiration man on 1930's..
