Kendall... "They should wear headgear."

I did VERY well as a lad in headgear. NEVER defeated. Took the headgear off. Got the shit beat out of me. I have EXTREME peripheral vision because my eyeballs protrude slightly from my eye sockets. I can see stuff WAY further to my sides than most people but I can't see shit when someone smacks me in the eyes. Me old man said to keep my head down but I said... "My eyes hurt! Fuck that!" Thus ended my career in the ring.

It never was a "career", of course. It was just a sport I should have never been involved in.
