For a crime he did not commit.

Hell of a story' date=' would make a good film if you ask me.[/quote']

 

Caught a segment on his story in some espn special a couple weeks back. Talk about being rail roaded. Sounded like he still had some good fights in prison though against golden gloves fighters and stuff.

I am not an overly emotional man, but I will admit that his ESPY acceptance speech and video package tribute was exceptionally powerful and brought me to the verge of tears. The fact that he returned to the ring continues to inspire me and give me faith in the strength of the human spirit. Dewey Bozella is a living testament that who you are can win out over the circumstances of your life.
