In Enemy Territory

He stands in his corner, awaiting the bell;

The flash of cameras, hungry to start action,

Conjuring some demons from the pits of hell,

Ignore the propensity for distraction.

The crowd tries to affect his focus with boos;

Their hometown hero will soon suffer the blues.

A violent display with no repercussions,

Defying odds are his favorite discussions.
