“I’m not looking for sympathy, just to be looked as a man on the mission; a man who never gave up, and because of that, his dream is now coming true.”
Dewey Bozella served twenty-six years in Sing Sing for a murder he didn’t commit. As the years faded in prison, knowing he could appeal for a lesser sentence by lying and admitting to the crime, Dewey refused to submit. Confessing to the murder of a ninety-two year old woman wasn’t an option. His integrity was of too much value.
It was in Sing Sing that Dewey found boxing.
On October 15, after living two years as a free man, Dewey will step into the ring to meet thirty year old Larry Hopkins in Los Angeles, California for his first professional match.
Another example that dreams aren’t only the indulgences of children.
They can be realized at any age.
