"Boxing is a tight-knit fraternity. Everybody knows everybody. But a line in the resin will forever be drawn separating those who step into the square ring and those who DON'T. Many, many people make money on a fight, but when the bell sounds, only two people answer it." - Randy Smith, February 2003, Journal Inquirer (Manchester, Conn.) Newspaper
