Muhammad Ali's Focus Edge Mindset in Defeating George Foreman for the Heavyweight Championship

"Only a man who knows what it is to be defeated can reach down to the bottom of his soul and come up with the extra ounce of power it takes to win when the match is even. I know George wants to keep the Champion's crown. He wants the crown, but is he willing to pay the price? Would he lay out his life?

It's time to go all out. Toe to toe. George pours out a long left, and I cross my right over it. Now I've got to lay it all down on the line. If the price of winning is to be a broken jaw, a smashed nose, a cracked skull, a disfigured face, you pay it if you want to be king of the Heavyweights. If you want to wear the crown, you can play it careful only until you meet the man who will die before he lets you win. Then you have to lay it all on the line or back down and be damned forever." — Muhammad Ali, 1975
