Champion a dream

Heavyweight boxing champion Muhammad Ali in the 5th Street Gym in Miami, Florida. Deep inside, Ali had a dream to be the “greatest.”

Champions aren’t made in gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them — a desire, a dream, a vision. They have to have the skill, and the will. But the will must be stronger than the skill.
