That's amazing and I wish my nfl record was that good. But it's not. Your winning percentage is off the chart. So, Billy, thanks for joining us on huddle up with gusts. Yeah, thank as much for having me say you very much, so, billy. I always start off and I like to we go back to when we were all kids, and I think we all relate to this. But what was that moment where you fell in love with sports and made you want to kind of be an athlete? Do you have that? Was it a somebody in your family was in an idol? Who did you have and what was that situation for you? You know it's going to be. It's a little crazy story, but it's a good story. You know how to set the good happy ending. I grew up in orphanes and fossil homes, and so for me, I found that really young, eight years old, that the safest place for me to be was on football field or in wrestling room or on a track or in a boxing gym. And because the coaches, like the hard trained in the better ever formed, I got to eat, you know what I mean, like you eat. To say you know what I mean right sounds crazy, but it's real. And and so my love for sports came from with a necessity, like almost as a necessity as well, you know what I mean. And if I tell you the first time over the first time I had charged victory probably, and this is like, I mean eight, nine, ten years old, and there was no feeling ever felt like and I was like, oh my Gosh, these people love me, this is great. So if I win or I do good, they loved me. And so I post some post, some post, some Poston, and it became my life and it sometime I'll share a photos of you and well, you see pictures me when I was sixty years old, I look like a loose Fregno, and so you could tell like all I did was living the gym. But God right, you know, and it was amazing. I Love I love sport, diving, Sports with the best thing for for for any young child, mail work, you know, to give them this wouldn't give them the directions and you could be a sports you know anything. And my have kids play volleyball, I've got kids a Russell, I got grandkids of Russell, I got all the kids play football as well and I had my ten year old plays football for four years now, you know. So it gives them great direction. It's a great, great thing.

I love it. I coach every year. I Love Coaching. It's just amazing. The kids are amazing. So you sound like you were multiple sport athlete growing up. You tried everything, which is amazing. So how did you go and then all of a sudden say I'm going to stick to boxing? What was that? Did you have a coach? You have a mentor? That said, I think you're best at this. How was how did that process happen for you? Well, I have for scholarship offered to Texas am and undred and eighty two, and that's when texts am was real. They're great buck up still, but they're really a good buckle back then and you know, all state, I'll conference football. You know, I think I had eleven touchdowns my senior year and I played defense. Eleven defensive touchdowns. Oh Man. So it was crazy. I loved it. I just love of sticking at the people. Defense was great, you know, and I know about that as an athlete. You know, right, and but anyway. So, so I'm working. They want me to come. I'm like now I live by myself. I used to have in the kway campground, right and so camper when I was seventeen. Age is sixteen, Seventeen, eighteen years old. That's where I lived. I lived this joy camp ground up into the Utah and it's as like all must stay for the summer work. You know, I thought I was making all the money. I was making eleven dollars sixtenths an hour. I thought I was a millionaire, you know. And and so the coaches will try to talk me to leaving early because they they know I was unsupervised and and they're like going, okay, if you are, I will at least come the first of all. A Gust. I said, okay, just give me June July. I'll be the first of August. And so I was up on this three three street building. We were sitting right iron and and I was Jack Cameron out the you know, the notches for the right eye to sit in, and thirty seven feet of walls Scathleyne and Jack Cammer crumbled to the ground. So bust of my back and like all like seven places that you get back the stuff. So I training is a fighter to get back in shape to play football. And and you know, obviously no one would take me because of the liability with the brook and back stuff, right, you know. And of what happened was ended then. You know, through my training as a fighter going West stage, had been going regional Chad, being good national champion USAPS, state regional champion on all the trophies. And I was at the golden nationals and and Jene former approached me and he said you should turn pro. Your style, you should, you be a great pro. Right, and this is in one thousand nine hundred and eighty five, and I was like, okay, I had a plenty of trophies and medals, as I literally you know he said them. He told me the amount of money I can make boxing. I was like wow, okay, that's cool. We already had right, right, you know, I get to travel to roll this stuff a lot. They layed it out a pretty nice little package for me. They really motivated me to want to fight, and so I turned pro and the gene former, who was the middlewich champion of the world back in the S and s s and stuff, you know, great, great champion, great fighter here, one of the few fires and knocked out sugar Robinson dock in those days, you know, so right. And so I started trying to fire in nineteen eighty as a professional fighter n eighty five. My first pro fight in nine eighty six and I had my last pro fight in two thousand and sixteen. So once I started, I did I didn't look back. I was like this is what I'm doing, let's go, you know, and there was a lot of fun. I love that travel. That's five, I can eleve of different countries. I fought all the seventeen different states the United States. It's been a lot of fun and it really has, you know. So I can't even imagine. Can you tell me any similarities between football and boxing? Man, you know, just you know, it's pretty hard core box seen as like you there. You know, there's no one that can, no one's got your back. Like you know, you either fight and the knocked out or get beat up or whatever. And with football, a lot of our football as the team working the commoder ship, like with your fellow players and and you like you know, if you miss something, someone's going to pick it up and hopefully, you know, pick up what you miss, and so it's not so bad. And boxing you miss the Jad you didn't punch in the face. So similarity wise, though, you know, just a lot of training, a lot of train train, training over, I always say train hard, fight easy, fail of football. Train hard the games. The Games just snap, you know, fear and shape and you can go. You can go build a bell full blast and or in football you go what's it of whistle full blast. There's nothing you can accomplished in any sport. You know, he's got to be in shape to just do it. Just go for her descent, full blasts on the miles an hour, you know, and that's you're really like in football as a love of that that play outs. I'm backer and the man, like you know, wasn't super fast. They're on like a four five, four, five, four, four, four forty and my vertical job was like like a little bit of a three seat, you...

...know, and thirty seven inches and and so I would run out and look at the quarterback and I was like licking my lips right, you know, I'm just down there just chopping, just pumping my tea, and I feel like they were like this, I don't hit me, and just kind of some of the football. Now we weren't all like that, but we didn't like you guys run it at us. When you look at a quarterback. You got some monster on then just looking at you and you know how fast he is and you hope your guard stands up fast enough to blog him, because the tackle, my God, that's me, your Dagle. So you holt of the guard, just get in the way, or the running backle pick me up or try to take me up, you know. And but I still love, I still like giving you guys a little tickles. Pickle, take a tickle to the yeah, yeah, sometimes those tickles weren't so funny. I still love running quarterbacks down without always sweep away from me, and I was run him down, you know, and you can look over the shoulder. There was no one there to help them. Yeah, that's it. That's a bad feeling, definitely. I've been run down by a lot of good players and it's not a good feeling when they run you down. Not at all. The big boys. I'm six, for right now we're about three hundred and fifty. I've found round three hundred. So I've always been kind a six hundred. Forty three hundred pounds, and high school I was six, like three probably. I think I went to forty five, two fifty. So you know, these kids like I mean. You know I'm going to tell you, guys, I mean even abuse men of the tongue football. I am to you like I wish. I gotta play Pro Bowling. Well, I was six five to thirty. That's what I played at and it I was. I was small, and your left when you're when your tackles are six eight, may wag three hundred and forty pounds. You know, you're like, I feel pretty good back here in the pocket. Yeah, exactly, but I know I love football and so the similaries it just you know, I try. I had great coaches and boxing and in the love and the and the team work happens in the gym. You know, offered to the point. We got to get them ring in fight. It Seth when you want. Nobody can. Nobody can be the quarterback, for you can be the fighter with me. So so they everyone gets you ready and you get they prepare you, to protect you, to do all the best they can do. But you still like for you, Gus, you're the one that's got to throw the football's got to go or orchestrate the play properly, because if you don't have this up, the whole thing. You know, Sam a kind of boxing. Similarity, like your coaches and you're all the people around me get you ready, to get you ready for your once to one, to three, duck and move and stuff. But if I go out and put my hands down over the guy tounch me in the face, all that herb was at the window. So right, a little bit similar that your man that will got as far as the team work outside of the ropes. You know. Yeah, they have a great, great event. Good coaches. My whole life. I love my coaches, the grand father figures. So if you look back when you got hurt and you didn't get to go to Texas A and M, do you remember the call to the coaches? Do you remember what happened there? You know, all there. They were disappointed. And then I have like a coach arts will, Unian from we were State University, Coach Gad From University of Utah, and they came down when I got better and I and I went up to meet them. They came down to meet me and they were like really, we would love to let you play for us, but we can't accept the lie. But would love to have because right, you know, I was. I was just that kind of player that I would do whatever. I'm like, I'm one of the most coach boutlets on earth, you know. And and so that's what made me so good as a player and as a fighter. If whatever the coaches said to do, I would do you know, and with no variation. So they set their four jobs in two red hands. Are Getting four jabs in two right hands, you know, right, you know in Samba football, you know, and so they was just everyone was like just kind of like God, he's what a freaking waste. It's, you know, like I don't want to talk. When I trusted coach, he's from Texas and am he was like billy, he was man, he was. Were heartbroken when I just heart brokings. We lost a good player. Were heartbroken because, you know, are you going to be okay? What can we do for you? And you know, and it was a work accident. So work, with the work on Condo, state paid for me to go to college anyway, but I just couldn't play football college. You know, where did you and have gone to school? I went to Utah State University and for a couple of years now we're down. We wish that university and that's when my some of my older kids. They graduated from Tust the university. My older son, when did you do your Tusta University on a golf scholarship? Imagine that, you know, wow, wow. He's the golf p one Scottsdale now. So he probably watched your career in my career and said I don't want to have anything...

...to do with it, I'm gonna had a golf all. Forget that. I'll do this till one seventy right. You know, yeah, exactly, problem. Yeah, it's so. Yeah, so it's been to your college. My daughter asked you went there to be sure there to be veterinarian. Veterinarian, and she met her husband. Lived in Bashton. They have a catter branch up there and Southern Idaho and they met in college and got married. And so it was a great school. UNIVERSITY UTAH. A COUPLE MY BOYS GOT UNIVERSITY UTAH. My other son went. We wish the university. So, like they're all good schools and we've all attended all of them. You know. So it's kind of Nice. You know. Yeah, so, mark, what do you think it will kind of attitude does it take to to go through that kind of transition that billy did. I mean, that's pretty amazing. You go from being a star on one sport to another star on another sport. Well, obviously, I mean you've not stopped smiling and you've not said a negative thing about anybody. You've just talked about even the experience of nearly dyings. I'm sure you nearly died. You don't even look at it that where you're like, okay, well, I can I play football, so I'm going to start through doing start boxing. And it was like you seem to just have this golden optimism about you. That's why, you know, I've just loved it, got along with you so well, and you know you incorporated that into your earthly world's book. Right, talk about that little bit, but I'm sure that all of that you've had this sort of the can do attitude, like okay, so I can't do that, so what can I do? I'm going to start boxing. And the question that I had to though, is it boxing is incredibly physical, requires incredible endurance and I only boxed once in my life. To this this kid like a I got went two minutes, almost passed out and he hit me in the face twice. So I understand you can't play football with a broken back. But the interesting thing is you still endured, you endure this full professional boxing career after having had all of that bottle a damage and all of that Rehab. How did that go for you? And as far as attitude, what was your attitude about that, because it just seems like you, you talk like you seamlessly just went okay, I can't play football, what can I do? I'm going to start boxing just for fun, and then next you know, you're a pro boxer. So I've got to say, look, you know what, for me, I've had I've had great friends, I've a great coaches. Even after that was an absent, things happen, you know, and it was just it was just an amazing situation to see how everyone kind of came together, you know. And I friends that were very successful amateur fathers. They said, by the should be the best you can do to get the shape to do it, do what you want to do, you know, and I'm like, okay, you know the all right, another sport. For me, like, you know, state champion wrestlers, state champion track. I'll stay football. So for me it was just another sport and I love sports. Sports are great. I love Michael I gues said, I love my coaches, you know, and I love what sports does for the youth. And even like I do. I'm a Special Olympics of Nevada coach, and and talk about pure athlete. These kids play the sport because they love to play the sport. There's no agenda, you know, right. And it's really just that. And these just things you learn, like the such great learning experiences if you have an open mind for it, you know, and so I just I mean, I love my life. It hasn't been perfect, you know I mean, but it's been pretty good. Like, I'm not gonna I'm not going to say here, take my last Barton, got to do this, I should have done that at this at that all the cold would should as Rut of route doesn't matter. It's like what you're doing. That's what managed to do it. And our Househo those. We don't use the word try either. Do are you don't nothing. The rest of us just this, just talking right, J want it, you're not doing it. You know what I mean. And so that's how my kids, you know, my kids have been on the pusher program since like even really the little girl right there. If xander bill have to do push upskill do for shops shown there just amazing, you know. So so we're it's a great really the great life. And and I just have to think everyone who's supported me, like not just my coaches, but I've got some good friends that have said, billy, you can do it, then just just go do it. Don't what you waiting like. When I decided to have come back, I took some meals off a boxing night and and I was like, man to I come back. I'm like, you know, forty seven, you know what am I do? You know, I am back and forth them. I can do it. So so good. So I can do it, you know, right. And I here went not right and saw got the shape and we just started knocking. We I say, well, my first fight back in two thousand and I find two thousand and seven won great and I took a few more years off because I was really good doing my companies and stuff. And, as I said, okay, really going to come back this time.

It's on two thousand and eleven we launched to come back, come back. That's when I have like twenty two straight winds and stuff, you know, and I thought this big guy, Octavius Davis, and I out of North Carolina. We're back there in North Carolina right fighting and it was this last minute substitution. I was supposed in finding some other guy and and this big six foot eight brother walks in the room. I'm like, Oh, I gotta have this tough fight to my first right back. You know, I'm like you years right, it's I am. I going, well, come on, you know. I mean if this comes out, trying to clober me like I still was lunch money my wow, wow, boom boom boom. You know when he's like big guy's arms. I had a picture of me on the ropes walking. A punch is right hand is going by me. He's like in the center of the ring, center of the ring. I'm on the roads getting punched. Yeah, you had four foot arms. took her about a minute a half to adjust to that. And after I pick myself a you drop me. I guys like Boombo Boom, down I go up for about ten bunches. I get up going wow, can't believes it happened. I'm so mad. Right, and so I went. I Brooke his rooms twenty seconds of the second round and that bubble was over. But but I had to get up, you know. You know there's not like. It's not as easy people think. You know, you're fighting is dies. You don't really not very big named faders. They don't know. They're not big named fighters these right I think, name faders. They're coming to fight because have an opportunity to win. The more they win, the more they make, you know. So they're not coming to go out there just you know, I'm at my hundred dollars, I'm going to go home, you know, and it's not like that. So so that was a that was my first comeback flight in two thousand and eleven. I had to pick myself up off the canvas to win that fight.

Like I can remember my first game in the NFL. Super Nervous going out to play the Indian applis Colt in Indianapolis. Butterflies, nothing feels good until I get hit. Right, I'm nervous like you. Just I just want to get hit by defensive lineman and say, okay, I'm ready to go now right. So, what was that like? Your first fight? Like you, you're all ready for it, but then you've never really you know where the bell things and this is it. You know you sparred and you've done all those things, but this is it. What was that like? Yeah, look, yeah, it was crazy. It was a chance. You know, I was nervous and I wasn't really nervous that to give beat up or decide. I was nervous because I want to disappointed. Buddy. You know, everyone's work so hard to give me a shade to get my first bike here in Las Vegas, and this is been one thousand nine hundred and eighty six the show boat or no. The first time was in the say Hero Hotel and I was on a roger may weather under guard. And Final Guy David Brooks, right, and you know he's too and Oh, I'm debut right. And and this guy was like six foot three, may two hundred and thirty pounds, Drum Fortyzero, you know, and I'm six for this point I'm probably two hundred and fifty. So we're pretty evenly matched, you know, sizewise. And we could have fought that fight a phone booth. We mette this fight was so crazy and noting down every round and so I won the winning announced decision. But I was beat up to trust me, I was beat up too, okay, and while fight was so crazy and so back and forth, up and down, back and forth, crack, crack and get up. You Get up, mad he get up matter. I'm going not going down to get it matter more even worth that, right, you know, it was so crazy. The crowd through money. They were standing on the feet throwing money in the ring. There was a poker chairs, several dollars, dollar bills. We scooped up like a thousand dollars off the floor when we got paid four hundred bucks for the first fire, like a thousand and chips and money off. You know, I was just that. was like I'm going to scoop up money on my Tom My coach. And this is gene former former a Wi tab of the world legend. Right, can't pick up some money? You know, I'm like, you know, I'm a poor kid and on my big so we're th look a little with thousand dollars about it. I never heard anybody. I've...

...never heard that happening. Know, that's it probable. So that's my pro debut. That's how I went. So the nerves would way pretty quick. It was pretty crazy. Is Pretty intense and but as soon as I that here I was going to fight, I was like, okay, it fits happening. Yeah, that happens. That happens in football as well. You know, soon as you soon as you get hit or stuff, I like as a quarterback. You know, I'm not like a Lineman or linebacker. You know, anybody else I can go deliver a blow. I gotta wait till it comes to me. And sometimes I thought the one you want. You know what I mean. But you know, it's funny. You what you said. I'm a poor kid and I got owt all this money. My Dad used to teach me when I was a kid because we had no money either. He said walk with your head down. You never know how much money you'll find on the ground. My kids still say that to me. He was one of fifteen kids. So you have a money you know, and I guess still to this day I find dollar bills and quarters and stuff all the time and and I just makes me. Made me think of my dad when you said that. It's kind of funny. That's great. You know, we pick up CHA. I pick up change still today the ground. The mature bells right here, my twelve year old and last year my casing the change for Christmas. How much was it? Almost a thousand dollars in change I took up during the year. Wow, wow, that's act. We'll see you you you used to that. That was your first fight. I was wondering if you were expecting that here every fight I'm going to make an extra thousand. So the next part IM when. Where's the money? You know, yeah, they are to find. You know that first was crazy, but that was not. You know what is the training? You fought in so many fights, you know, over a thirty year career, which is incredible, as you got older, because I know in football, as I got older the training got you know, I'm training with twenty two year olds and I'm thirty five. I'm playing for the dolphins. Right as you got older, how did that training go where you so used to like you had such a regiment that you were really used to what you had to do to be in shape? Yeah, you know, like I said, Rugo coaches and my coaches like knew how to work me. You know, it's fifty years old. You can still climb Mount Everest. You know so. But you just have to go to condition yourself maybe a little longer right now, like instead of being able like, you know, run down the mountain, you're going to walk down the mountain, you know. Yeah, right. And so we did a lot of different types of that size. I never really did in the past, and we didn't do as much live spine because the spar and of course you did a lot of damage like a scrimmage. You know, that's where you like damage. So so we kind of Rafel us here a coach Murk Sounta Murgerson train way johnes junior as well, and and and last all go sea. These guys been the game for almost a century. You're I mean together, right, right, and so some of the greatest trainers. I mean they've done such a great job with me and they knew when to push and one not to push. Not just because I'm was older and crankier, not because of that, nothing to do with it. I don't think Cranky's I don't think Cranky's in your real house, Mat. I said, I don't know. I watch a youtube on them. He he seemed like he gets a little cranky when he's messing with old cars. All right, right, you know, it's you know, we are. I don't know, man, if it's been so much fun. Of the thing of the coaches like they kept it were, didn't seem like it was like I was they were killing me. You know, would still do the same thing. I still going to do, you know, thirty rounds a day. You know, we're still going to do the hour and a half cardio every morning and all that stuff stays the same. But if they just made they break it up a little bit so it's not so crazy, you know, like we go to Mount Charleston every weekend and run the mountain, you know, yeah, bottom top of elevenzero feet to the summit that we run through and you know, so just to do us have a fifty one, two years old. It's pretty intense. But I could tell you I know like a lot of fellows that are older than me. It's safety fifty five and these guys are like incredible, how good a condition they're in. Right, my Gosh. You know what I mean. So I don't think you know the ages are. It's I mean, obviously it's not just a number, but it is kind of just a number. I guess you didn't know when your births dinner, when you're born. How old would you be right now? Yeah, exactly, yeah, yeah, that's a good one. Well, I think it's all mindset to right. It's all. It's all. It's all like when you're training and getting in the ring, that it's a mindset of overcoming like I feel like crap today,...

...but I got to go do it. You know, there's there's those mindsets that that you just learn how to get through it. You know, you know, I mean you're going to get hit and there's no there's no questions. You're getting punch in the face, you're getting punch in the guts, you're going to get hit. There's is no question you're getting punched. You know. So you know, it's like you want to be able. After a while, you know, you learn how to get punched, like you know how many years, how long for you was it? But got before you knew how to take a hit and still get up and hit the nets play undred percent. I mean they re member because it really because sometimes you guys, I watched it take its whoop. Had someone that fell. quarterbacks. You get crushed and they get right up like well, you know, there's spend times where you take a hit and it looks terrible and you hear the crowd go oh, and you know you get up, you did feel anything. And then there's times where just the pile falls on you in something POPs and you're like that didn't feel good at all. You know, it just still depends. You know, I've been hit. I've been kind of Michael Stray and almost broke me in half one game and that did not feel good. But you kind of get up, you try to call the next play, and you know I just did the next place, the most important play, and just keep moving forward. Right for fantasize. Same thing, like you know you're going to get hit and you just hope that. You try to walk the next right hand, try to maybe. You know. You catch a hook that way, didn't? You know, not so queen that time. You know. And and you learn tricks, you learn the angles, you learn the form becomes so automatic, the muscle memory becomes so automatic that even today, like I'm someone, I always just go whoop, whoop, right, put your hand for Iver supposed to be. Those are easy, body to block it away. And like I tried to play too much with my friends, because once in a while I will ask you that way you slap somebody. You know, I mean now I'm perfect. What we going? Like this, like a pop, whoop, sorry, yeah, yeah, that's just my left Jab. That's all. Yeah, you don't. It's like you don't want to go like you do poke the bear. You know what I mean? Well, yeah, right, yeah, just seemed to be a donuts and laugh a lot, you know. Right, right, that's all, that's all. That's all you, that's all you got to do. So you've had, like, I mean just all in your history. We don't have to get into everything it's be you been through in your life, but you know you've had ups and downs. Part of the shows about all the transitions and and struggles of people go through, and I think just your attitude has really gotten you through, because not many people have had a thirty year career in boxing yet, Alan in anything besides maybe some golfers out there. It's just it's so difficult because we all have family things go on right, we all have other things go on, businesses that that are great or fail and all these things, and you seem to really have been able to just kind of all right, this has happened to me. I'm going to deal with it, but I'm going to move on, I'm going to do what I love to do. And and so tell us a little bit about that process of how you mentally deal with all those things to get back into ring and be the professional you are. Yeah, it's tricky. I mean like there's Times, I guess easy to you know you hop out of bed in your right, but I don't because I'm like so anxious and so excited of you to get up to the sound. None of us down Corny or whatever, but I want to do better today than I did yesterday and I have an added every day. My good kids. Insane, right, and like I can't wait till my kids wake up. I can't wait to breakfast. That the guy have, like I have things that as dount what to do. Everything you know right, and I guess thing. I know it's in saying one of the most profound things, probably the change me me as when I was young. I was young, I must have been twelve, thirteen, and I was run on that boarder. I was right on that boarder to be a bad kid or be a good kid right, and one of my coaches said to me, pulled me as I watch Christians right, and I said to me, billy, he said, these can be stepping stones and building blocks or they can be the rocks that cover your grave. You know what I mean? Yeah, so, and what that meant to me was like it, like I was like about it. I'm like a kid. Yeah, I mean like, yeah, where's my note? Shake, practice, whatever. Your mind is going a thousand miles an hour, but that sink in and I remember that like it was yesterday and I played that over and over and over my head every time I've have a that day or if I feel like maybe I'm picked on by the world or whatever. Right, you know. And and and I'm like, I go any okay. So just a building block, or is this going to be one of the blocks that there's going to be cover my grave, not going to quit and just way under the rocks? Or am I going to use them as building blocks and step right? No, go...

...right. And so I'd use them as building box my whole life. And so every time there's an obstacle or or whatever front of me, I'm like, okay, this is a great chance to learn and develop and improve myself. And so, even with current events, you know, how do I improve myself? How do I make it better? How to make it better for my neighbor or stranger? You know, how do I do better today so I can make a small soul influence. Like it doesn't take much to change someone's Day or to change your attitude a little bit. It's unfortunate that it's not enough of it. Really, you know what I mean. It's right, right, think this way and but that's what's made me, I think my whole life I've just sort of gone like, okay, just going to be a building block moment, or this going to be me this way down. So sorry with myself, and start covering myself up of the blocks that I could I could grow from, you know, and so that's what I've done. It might sound Corny, old fashion, might be dry, it's not exciting, but it has been like that. West Christians has no idea the impact he had on me. And then the Morne mercy was my resturent arch my senior year, and I was living by myself like I was sixteen. I turned seventeen my senior year, so I'm sixteen years lad. Turned Seventeen decemblment senior year, and now my mother stuff on that. You honestly to drop out of school. I'm just going to go to work. I'm just gonna make a money. You know right, you know, you know I love sports, but it's not realistic. You know. You know. I mean, I like I'm certainly having a bit of a defeatist right, right, and Wayne Burkey pulled me aside. This guy was like a national changing for a house state wrestling right Ratler, phenomenal coach, phenomenal get this. That was amazing. Gang and so people miss. I'm were similar breaches in the basketball, Basketball Court right and I'm already put his arm around and if you listen, billy, he goes, if you want to come, stay with me and stay in our basement, you know, and you know, he said. And he said, but if not, if you need to stay where you're at. He said, listen, why don't you try doing this every day when you get up? Every day, when you get up, just Shay to yourself today's and be better than yesterday. Let that be the first thing you say. That's all I said. You do it for a month. He goes. Don't going to do murder forever. Just get up, let it. What do you said out about? You thing it. He goes up. Prefer he said out about for a while and film first thing, you know, sticking right, so right. For a month. I jumped up and I said, kids, today is going to be better day than yesterday. And I did that right now. I'm like fifteen, I'm a kid right, right, and I did this and I did this and I did this and I did this and I keep on doing it. But do her for one of them. I'm fifty six and I've been there for forty years. That's awesome day when I put my bed on the floor. Today's in a better day than yesterday. Valet stay and play on your next getaway to Los Angeles.

And those are and those are great lessons to teach your kids. Yeah, yeah, and I'll tell you something. I've been doing so much reading and I've been doing so many interviews. Myself and nearly all the great performers do something like that in the morning, like when I wake up, the first thing I go, I say, is twenty four beautiful more hours, and then I think of three things with three people for which I'm grateful that stuff's not corny. That literally sets up your day. If you set up your date with some positivity right at the beginning, that literally is the attitude that you are growing your day from. So that's critical and I love that. I'm going to take I'm going to steal that, by the way, Barrow, if you don't mind that one's that one's great. Also want to point something out out, but I notice about you two men. You know, it's funny, for boxing being such a solidary sport, solcery sport, you really are about the team and you really are about appreciating and acknowledging and wanting everybody to be a part of your success. So a lot of a lot of your attitude, of what motivates you, I notice, is that you're doing it because all these people leave. Do you put this time in you as well. So you're not just doing it for yourself, you're doing it for everybody. Even as a boxer, you're doing it for everybody, nonetheless, a football player, when you're actually playing with a team, but you keep on talking about that. So I can't let them down, can't let the coach you on. I can't let these people that because...

...they invested in me, so you invest in them, and that attitude is absolutely brilliant because it really creates this amazing sort of shield of love and protection and of reciprocation and brother that that that, that really blows me away, because I don't hear many people talk that way. Usually they are so they're so self absorbed. Well, I got to do this for me, guns for me, not for we and and I, and that's one of the things I really appreciate about you and about your attitude. I appreciate that. You know, I was and I felt my kids this their whole life. There's nothing that you can accomplish alone that you will give you the satisfaction of something you accomplish with people you care about or people around you, and I mean even though you're a pat you running as you look your ways, if you about these things are but it doesn't matter. Like when we book my Don Stories and night looking my kids or a sing songs and I go to sleep. You know I'm not a great singer. I sing badly, but so quick. Yeah, they're faking it. They're like, LE's get him out of here. They're like, you're faking a sleep. I think you know and you know. So I just everything like for me is I don't want to I don't want one thing alone, you know. And and so my kids are my why, if that makes sense. Oh, way, I get there. Why I do everything there? Why I feeling before? I days maybe better than yesterday, and we just go. I don't we don't like. There's no you know, there's no. I think on my instagram thing I said I have I lived my life with no regrets. Now there's some moments I like to get back. Yeah, definitely, I know what you mean. No regrets. Now. We live our lives. You know, we're going to get booboos and always once in a while, and that's that's life. Where you got a feelings hurt, it's life, you know. You just chock it up and go, come on, Tomorrow's here. It's going to be a part yesterday. And you know. So that's awesome, billy. So, yeah, you're officially retired. Now, are you still going to box? Get Out of the secret? Well, what else are you doing besides boxing? Yeah, you know, I I've got my little lately. I know I got this brain disease a few years ago and there's no, no big dealness and no drama. And you know, they're like kids on June twenty a two thousand and seventeen. You know, I've been having sometimes I'm like wow, I got those coming diabetics. I'm like that, I'm mad. I don't want to stoping the sugar right, right, right, and so when I go to the right now, billy, are perfect health, ther Buecher, because gray your closer, all the grays. You're great, you're great. I'm not going well, I'm having that film like this, I'm feeling like that and I'm like, well, what's your doing? Mr I just to see, you know, and it's not. Maybe I was having some brain damage and stuff from boxing, you know, and stuff. And Yeah, nothing, no impact, injuries, nothing, nothing, that kind of stuff. And so the legions and the things I was having, the white matters having to my brains, was from this cronic a scheme in small vessel disease where the bloodlust of the brain start to die and then so there's no blood. No Watch again, right, your branch jus have a little ministrokes. He started, you knowing. So they said you got like twenty four months. You probably don't remember a year of it. You know, and I'm like, you guys are know you're talking to you, talking to me like you can give me a number and I'm going to go, okay, yeah, okay, on that day. Know. And so we drow up on your research and a great you know, doty, Dr John Pierce's being at standing doctor. Many of them, you're all just some other doctors. I've been to the amazing great teams, great great people who really cared about making me get better, and that's why I'm better and that's why that he's a stable and non existence and my brains has started to like repare, like it's crazy. So there's parts of my brain that are woke up where the part died. So kind of made up for the part of the die, but also woke up parts of the brain other people we aren't using, you know, right. And so this medicine. Take four shots to day, still today, for the rest of life, I take four or shot today in my stomach every morning, right, and and then once every about once every eight months. I going from our stream. SOONE ejections, okay, and and I'm telling you, so I started having these dreams right now. I'm a smart guy, all right, I'm intelligent, but I wouldn't say I'm literally, like. I'm not like I was like I'm a literally type person where and I'm a book writer. I'm a you know, could be a great Chu profector that mean? Okay, not now. I wouldn't call me that guy. Right, right. They would like to think we can do anything, right, but I never would have picked that in a million years, especially a couple of years ago. Right. So about a year ago maybe? Yeah, about a year ago, ten months ago, I start having these dreams, right, and and Markin's be going for some of these dreams, like this could be a...

...dream, like you remember this conversation for a few days or whatever, right, and like like. So I remember my dreams like that. And so I will. I wake up at two o'clock in the morning going what on earth is a Lepri con fish? Right, and never heard of a up about fish. I Google, it doesn't exist. I'm having dreams that are is like vivid, all these colors and different crazy things, and so I started taking notes. I started making notes, you know, and my notes turned into the book that the mark has right there on the scroty world. Yeah, and so I s ever write these books off of my notes. So I finished with the world's one. I'm I'm in the process to finishing book goods, the trilogy, Finishing Book, You know, book two and book three. I'm working on two SCI fied books, dark fantasy. All from dreams, and if I told you my dreams, I don't do right now. Sometimes we talk about it. It would really make you like the technology they're dream about. It will blow you my mind. I don't want to say it, I know. I don't want anyone to ever here be talked about it because I don't want to get kidnapped by the Internet. All right, so, but your butt you're writing about it. I mean that's not all that beautiful fantasy in the stuff that you're managing, you're creating, it's you're manifesting it in the book. So everybody gets to share in the joy of them, which is great. Yeah, so about so you know again I had to you know, I've got some great editors are helped me put the book together. How a books are go together? Again, I'm not brilliant with that stuff. I've got some great ideas and some really crazy dreams. The average gains a reader at the world. That really is it's a market, it's it's a it's a fat it's a fantasy and venture book. Dark, magical world, like magical world, you know, earthly worlds that I'll write together, and how the characters are very dynamic and very real. As you read the book and just two pages, just turn and you're in the book. You you'll feel like you're in the book. And this is what the feedback I've received from everyone that's read it. And I'm glad because you're reading my dreams. So I'm glad right to the interest people and it makes them feel engaged and and so it's really a lot of fun. But I tell you again, this part of this. You know, I didn't do it by myself. You know, I got a great team of you know, Mark Graham, Travis Kierman, but even my kids like exactly right, push, push dead, you know, write a book, write a book, write a book, write a book, write a book, write a book, you know, and my kids are great and I'll called the graduates and so after a little bit I'm like, well, you put you, you're smart. My kids are smart, so maybe I should listen to him. I right, all right, I figure out how to contract these I. Editors and different people and stuff, you know, and and and dam I mean it's just crazy. I mean it really not crazy, like in white coat crazy, but you know right, a good way, like happy crazy, like wow's it happening? So the rest, a hundred copies or a hundred million copies, it isn't about that, as is the fact that to accomplish something that you set your mind to and just do it every day and you know it's amazing. That's a make. So were you into Scifi before, like did you? Were you a star Wars Guy? Were you fantasy guy and all that stuff? I don't know. I wouldn't say. I really wouldn't. Sam. I love comedy like Will Ferrell and Jock lack. Yeah, I mean so I wouldn't say that I even like, I'm not even really a Lord of the Rings Guy. Yeah, but you wouldn't know it if you read the book. You wouldn't know. You would think that I I do well, but I do well. I mean I love that kind of Hobbit. Is like. I've been in New Zealand a couple times and Iways go to those little bit got the little place down there. Whether that was filmed you know, right, and it's it's fun to go in those little hot houses and we always have a good time we go down there. But so I like those kind of movies. I love the magical part of life. I believe in magic, you know, not like hocus pocus. You have that, you do your toad. Maybe not so much that kind of magic, but the magic that comes from Chemistry and energy and happiness and joy. Right, just positive energy, you positive attitudes, creates magic. Magic just starts happening, you know, and I mean look, I'm a I'm living proof of it. I don't you can take a hunt of people whine them up, you know, and it's up to each person to create their own magic, if that makes sense. No happiness, and so everyone can have the same magic. Everyone can have the same happiness. Now we can. We can combine her happiness and combiner magic and make you know, more and better. Right. But as far as like, as far as I'm literally living proof that you could do anybody. I'm not a rock. I'm my dumb as a rock, but you know, I'm maybe like a little bit of above. I don't know. You know what I mean. So like doing anything. If I can do anybody could do it. That's what I'm saying. I don't know, man, you seem pretty with it to me and like you, you could have written a book, book a long time ago. and to me the crazy thing is you're writing about fantasy and and you have a thirty year boxing career that you probably could talk about endlessly, you know, and and you're writing things about...

...that that you probably even never really thought about, because a lot of kids who grew up in sports really weren't those types of kids, you know what I mean. So it's pretty amazing that you've done that and you stepped outside of yourself to write an incredible book like that. You know, I got to say as a musician, I believe that it comes through us. I believe that we need to do the work. But you're getting these dreams, you're becoming a channel, and the beautiful thing is that you're smart enough and aware enough to allow all of the channeling that's sort of coming through you. Wherever it's coming through, you know it's coming through. It's like when I'm playing drums, I'm doing a solo, it's like, well, yeah, I've worked on my rudiments, I've roped out on all the other different things. But where's that cut? It's comes. It just comes through me. I need to allow it. You allowed it to come through use. You were smart enough to write it down. You're smarting thing will wow and be commenced by your team, by your son, by other people, because you're that kind of guy. Write a book. Write a book. So now you're writing a series of books because all this stuff is coming through you, which is sort of proof that we all have it in us. Like it. There there is almost like this energy force of we we, if we allow we could tap into and and that's what's so beautiful, man. Added it a magical and I'm saying it. Yeah, you know, you're both of us parents are in football and drumming and mute that sports. Anything. You can do any even landscaping, it doesn't matter what it is. You can you can channel that stuff and you can feel an energy and feel that imagical stuff happening. And and for me, being a father gives me so much happiness and so much yeah, like it really nurtures my soul, you know. Yeah, I would say when you start reading the book, you read left Steward. He's one of the main characters and whatever. These dark end light you go, but dark, dark soul, rough childhood, rough pass I drew from my life a little bit to create the character, you know, and but also from my dreams and from the things and the stuff that was going on. This character had to be strong but vulnerable. That makes sense, you know, right. And and then that's like I was sense that how you guys are too, very strong, very like game. We're doing this, but the same time we're vulnerable guys, and that's the part that I think why people love us and we're able to we're approachable and people are able to connect with us is because the vulnerability that we have allows us to connect with them where they don't feel like we're dominating them because we're a football player or famous drummer or a boxer or book rider or whatever it is, doesn't matter, right, and it's that vulnerability in that that that allows us to be just huggable. That makes sense. I'm right. I agree. Totally. Come home and my little too runs me, Daddy, Daddy, Daddy, and wraps are a little, you know, arm draw my match and even my one when my when my ten year old, Eleven, Rod Twelve Rold. Even my thirty eight year old gives me a hiding because I'm a chief. It's like it's it's the validation that, okay, I did I did that right. The thing, the most important thing to me, I got it right. Not Perfect, right. Yeah, not perfect. And the worst and the worst is is when they're mad at you because you know, you know, you can't just say I'm so sorry at all this. You know, you got to kind of say I'm mad at you too, because you did this, you know, you know, and they get mad back and then and then some point, like I just can't take it, like I got to go to my daughter and say, Hey, you know, we got to talk about this and we can't let this fester and all these things. And we've really tried to do that all like you're we're going to be mad, but we're going to talk about it. We're got to get it out. You know, the good times are great, but let's make the bad times a lot less and work on them. Yeah, so you seem like you from it. Yeah, exactly, exactly. So you've done all these kind of things. You've written a book. Now what? What is another passion that you have in your life and just in just look you for my kids, Bob, he's automatic, you know, and and my books and my idea. Her books are great and I love working, like I said earlier, by the Special Olympics in the battle kids. You know, I just love working with kids, whether whether the specialty kids or not, specially kids true kids have a true love for the sport and that's why I love coaching that coach every year and, you know, coach football every year and I coach the kids. I got some a few kids like that. We obviously can't coach football for the Special Olympics, but we do golf. It's still want to fun, you know, right, and we've done like some running and jumping events and stuff and it's just...

...so much fun. I mean, I don't know how to explain to so my passion at this point in my life is really making continuing to keep the bubble bubble okay, right. You know, people will say you should let your kids grow up in a bubble and I'm love, why not? Why not? If I can keep the bubble alive, why not? Right, that experiences at school worth their job or in life for or just, you know, just just from exposure natural exposure. Right, going to get enough of the negativity. Don't got a gift from me. So the bubble stays alive in my house, right, and they get to live in a bubble because that's the only bubble I can give them. I can't follow them with a bubble everywhere to go, right, tecing twenty five hours a day. But I can tell you at our house it's a great big bubble of happiness, enjoying a lot of fun. And I didn't, man, I get to hear about I let him tell me. Tell me they can say, they can say whatever's on the might. They can say to me, because my kids know one thing. I've done something. You tell me the truth, I'll never get mad. Now people might. I've never raised my hand to one of my kids, you know, and I rarely raise my voice. So when they come to me, I had it. This is a crazy elential story, too much, but they had to come here like you know, no, want to say seven and nine, okay, and they come to me and they've been playing with some friends and they're like, you know, dad, I saw this boys private parts today and I was like, oh, say, and so you know the dad? Yeah, all right, you know, but I can't because my what's my words? Of My kids, right, and I'm like all right, well, how did it make you feel? And you know what, do you know? What you know? What's on your mind? The only questions that comets have, right, you know? And No, no, I just it was weird. Who Right? Good, good, you know. So I've had that same relationship even today. was like you, my thirty at year old, my thirty two old, my thirty three year old, my twenty eight year old, my my newmate, of my friend that in college, like they he asking questions, like you know, about alcohol and drugs and stuff like that. I'm like, well, I don't recommend it. You know, I don't recommend it, and I will say to him just if you can the day that you can tell me somebody the cure cancer or came up with a world changing invention higher drunk, then we'll talk about you doing it. Yeah, Greg Grey, way to talk about will you bring me a name of an inventor or a person that cured something or created something life changing for the world and come talk to me about it until then, otherwise all you can hear about is, you know, and fortunately the horrible things that happen to people in the situations, and so usually it's it's the bad thing. And so, you know, I prefer you didn't, but if you choose to, please be safe, you know, don't do the bad stuff. You know, just as they try to guide them because they get older. We know, we get eighteen to twenty five, and they lived in that bubble, right. Yeah, and so it's alcohol and know about drugs and know about all the US and stuff that happens to get that age and they can. They come to me, Ay Dad, you know, and I got to keep that focal face you. It's like yeah, yeah, that's great, though, that's great. It's kind of give him a good lease on life, I'll tell you that. Yeah, keeping your agreements to it's important to keep your agreements. And Yeah, even kids. And believe me, the kids will never forget. Yea, they never forget. So, billy, one of the last things. You guys are so awesome. So one of the last things we do on the show is we call the two minute drill. So the two minute drills always brought to you by RADIOCOM wherever you listen to your favorite podcast, and also on amptvcom A and P tvcom brought to you by the sports circus. I'm, as we know, all our good friends, sal the ring master. So, so so sounds a great guy. So, billy, what awesome. So what we do in our two minute drill? I don't know if you're ready, Mark, if you got your few questions ready to go, but what we do is we fire some questions at you, we let you answer them and then we end the show like that. So I'll start us off, mark. So Billy, I don't love my questions. Well, you could think of one as we go. All right, so billy, if you had a mount rushmore of boxing, you can include yourself if you want, but who would be on your Mount Rushmore of boxing if donahoe field really boat? That's it. You got two more now. Okay, so, George Foreman. Don't know. Bill Ready, bow rocker Marciano. All right. Second Question. Who He? Who hit you the hardest ever in the ring? George Foreman and really bow they both let me hard. Why? Why were there hit so...

...hard? Is it? What is that that makes somebody just feel like because some people say, like when you throw a football, like I threw a football, I said it's really hard, you know, and some people throw a football and soft and I never understood that. So why is that? In Boxing, George Foreman is a very heavy handed fighter, has been a whole career. So he just it's like his job is like someone kicks up for by four and rams in the station for four, right, you know. And in riding bow had speed and power. So he's a little bit faster than George and with that came a bit of a pop, like you know. I yeah, and so it was more like a crack. And so we used to get it out of every rest part and sees a palace every aldermen Campson with brining and George years and years. Right. So, and these guys, man, I have would like. It was one day els in Houston, sexes ut at Georgie's ranch up number right, and I'm sitting on the bench after sparing with George like eight rounds on my one on Earth am I doing here? What am I doing here? Right, and I remember you came now and I sat down next to me, said you a really good job to thing he goes. I really want you to stay. You must knew. He must have felt that, you know, right, like I don't want to get beat up every day. You know, and he goes and you know, and then I remember he told some stories. I know you were. Happens. I won't get into, but you know, George the Funny Guy. But George and Berny bow are very powerful, very big men, and they just know how to punch right like that. Yeah, and you broke George Foreman's record. Right, no, I wish. I almost almost did. I thought you did. You know, I thought you broke it. I was I was watching your stuff and it kind of you were going for it. I know that and I we we are close. We are cloth care that George can have it great Japan. You know you're going to one big job and he's all. You know. You just a great person, so you can have it under I had great career. So, George, it's got a great grew true. So what what is your biggest pet? Peeve? My biggest Stet, peeve is and people don't do what they say. But then spect you two. Right, exactly. No, I agree with that. What if you could go back in time and meet a young billy right say, you know, whatever age you want to say. What was one piece of advice you would give them. I would say every day, when you get up and you put your feet on the floor, tell yourself today's going to be better than yesterday. I love say it every day. That was the best news of yes I've ever got my entire life. So I would tell myself the same thing. I wouldn't change I wouldn't change anything. I'd have no wretch. Awesome. If you, I know you're a football fan. I'm sure you've watched a lot of football players. Who's your favorite football player? You know, I tell you what. You know. That Gust Guy. There's yeah, no, you you're a defensive guy. There's the way you like he quarterbacks. Don't you know? You can't pay all over my eyes and I have pictures with Jack Young blood and when I was a kid, and Ranny Gratis Yarn Jack Youngblood, with two of my favorite players. To come the players, all right, I have. I've been thinking about this one. All right, you come out before a match, right before you're getting ready to fight. What music do you put on to come out? I was gonna be my question. Sorry, perfect. Okay, well, I guess. Well, there's I don't know. I mean, okay, so I guess it'd be this one. Oh Lord, it's hard to be humble when you're perfect in every way. I did better each day. Matt David Song where I got you got to be old and that song. Yeah, I just come out. I just come out there typically just rock of some sort, rock and roll, you know, and you know, a lot of drama, a base. You know what compo touch stuff and you know of course gonna like that.

It's a heavy one, it's a big one. But what and what, what impact do you want to have on the world,...

...on the planet? I hope, if nothing else, if people can learn from me that every day, when they put their feet on the floor, they say today is going to be a better day than yesterday and really mean it and really do their best to achieve it. If I could do that, I've done everything that's like. That's that's the most hope is that I inspire somebody to want to be better every day and it can be a different different has to be going to be better every day the same thing. It'd be better today one thing and better tomorrow with another thing and another thing. Doesn't have to be the same thing every day, you know. So you know to make it nice and diverse. You know, learners for language out and a lot of you know what Scotch whatever, whatever it is for you. You're a name. So that's all.

Now there's and they trying to give them some protect fighters. Fighters still get hurt, the still rest the worst, we're willing to take a fighter's you know, and to fight a fifteen round cattle fight. I think would be glorious.
