True fighters always believe there is one more fight left in them. No matter how much their physical body disagrees, the internal urge to go one more round is ever present. It never leaves. It is the intangible force that tells them when going into the final round undoubtedly losing on the cards to get up from the stool and touch gloves because there is still a chance for the knockout. However, the same trusted ally that propels a fighter through their prime can become an inevitable enemy when they reach their sunset. An enemy that lies and tells a hall of fame boxer to leave the safety of posterity and return to the lions den without warning of the danger inside. So whenever Oscar De La Hoya recently stirred social sports media by mentioning a potential return to the ring, it was somewhat shocking but by no means surprising.
