Lamon Brewster: ”I guess my favorite is Psalms 37: "Do not be envious of evildoers", because when I was growing up the only people with money were the drug dealers. But I stuck with God's words, and now they're all dead or in jail. Now I am Heavyweight Champion of the World and they write me letters. I’ve always been into God my whole life. My family’s from the south and most southern people have that deeply rooted Baptist background - which is where I come from, a Baptist background, a southern Mississippi spirituality. I always went to church. I went to bible study. Growing up the only thing you know is what your parents tell you, and they always told me about Jesus, they always told me about God and His Son. And as I got older I learned to call on the Lord in my times of trouble. I mean he delivered me out of a lot. I remember saying to the Lord: Lead me somewhere where I can be successful. Then I decided, hey man, I’m just gonna try this boxing thing.”

“My message for the fans is, that you can do anything in the world you want to do, no matter what it is you want to do, because I did it. I’m the world champion, because I believed in myself, because I had faith in God, and that to me is the single most important thing. The thing I try to get across to people is: So if I can make it, anybody - and I mean that - anybody can make it, but you have to believe in yourself. Nobody else is going to believe in you. You gotta believe in yourself. You gotta have confidence. You gotta have courage. Even if you’re scared to death you can do it. I went into fights when I was a kid when I was scared to death, but when I started throwing them punches, it dawned on me - hey, I can do it. And so I grew confident and was able to win fights against guys I didn’t think that I could beat. But because I started believing in myself, I could do it.”

What makes a fighter? What enables him to excel to the level of world champion?
