Svaha Spirit Series ~ Dewey Bozella


Dewey Bozella was locked up for 26 years – a lifetime – for a crime he did not commit. This story is about the triumph of human spirit and living proof of the maxim: “never give up”. One man’s journey to reclaim his life, against all odds; a man fighting his biggest fight outside the boxing ring without any hatred or bitterness towards the system. Dewey Bozella – courageous, persistent, human and finally…free.

After being wrongly imprisoned for 26 years, Dewey Bozella, 52, won his professional boxing debut against Larry Hopkins in a four-round cruiserweight fight at the Los Angeles Staples Center in Los Angeles.

“This was my first and last fight… It’s a young man’s game. I did what I wanted to do, and I’m happy. I appreciate everybody that made this possible. This has been one of the greatest experiences of my life.”

Congratulations Dewey!

Svaha Spirit Series ~ People Are Awesome!

People really are awesome, some even extraordinary! Some people are just born fearless, they don’t know how NOT to push the limits or boundaries that are all around them. Maybe it’s just that their boundaries aren’t elastic but that they are so far away they don’t even see them?

There seems to be a fine line between fearless and stupid though, I am not a fan of anything Jack-Ass-ish and even for me this is right on the edge. I can’t help but think of the training process to get to this point. I think you have to agree though that these individuals have courage! Watch this and you will see what I am talking about! Enjoy ~
