If I were not afraid, I'd challenge my life long enemy to a royal rumble. It would be like the Muhammad Ali and ' Smokin' Joe Frazier match. Or like the 'Sugar' Ray Leonard and Thomas ' the hitman' Hearns fight. I've been training my whole life so I know I can take him down. Oh I forgot to mention that match with ' Iron' Mike Tyson and Buster Douglas. Nobody was ready for Buster Douglas in that stellar match. I got to come like Buster did, if I want to beat my opponent who is a big bully, Who goes by the name of F. E. A. R…. I got to knock him out because he's held me back for far too long.

I enjoyed this very much Alexis. I enjoy boxing and I had Ali on one of my long flights. He had his wife with him who was carrying twins at the time. He is a real character, fun loving and funny. It was before he became ill. Nice memories. Congratulations on your deserving win! xxoo

Thanks Connie. I didn't you were a flight attendant. ( At that's what I think you're referring to). My best friend wanted to a flight attendant. It seems cool because you get to travel. PS, I loved Ali, my dad was a huge boxing fan. So this one for him:-) Alexis

As FDR put it, "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself." --- But that's a mighty tough fear to overcome. Good luck in your 'bout' and in the contest!! :) gw

As I crept over the edge to find out who the big bully was, I was delighted to find out it is FEAR. Well done!
