  1. Vinny is not only one of the greats in boxing, but, also, quite unique, very devoted & a passionate human being, that’s for sure! I I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone, go through so much during their life/career, and never give up or give in! Loved the movie, “Bleed For This”, while watching him go through that procedure of having his halo removed, and screws being taken out of his head, I think I was in total disbelief, that someone would deny themselves any relief from that kind of agony, due to their lifestyle, dedication, a belief in certain things, or whatever it was, that made him say no, to any kind of drug, even a legal one, that a doctor ipractically begged him to take, for himself and probably to make things easier on his end! When the procedure is done, I kinda felt what that doctor was feeling, when he shook his head and said “F*ck Me”! How he endured that, was unbelievable, and a little hard to watch, I tensed up for him, the whole time! Lol! I don’t know many people in the world, that 1) have never taken a drug in their life, not even a puff of marijuana when they were a teen, and 2) go through such a painful procedure like that, w/ absolutely nothing for the pain! Only thing I could possibly compare it to, is giving birth to my 1st child, that weighed almost 8lbs, while I’m 4’11” & very petite, w/o even a Tylenol! So, yeah, this man, has my full respect! You’re def. “The Man”, Ginny! If by chance, you ever read this, I hope you’re happy and life is being very good to you!
