Despite growing up poor—and not meeting his dad until the age of 21—the only boxer to win the World Heavyweight title four times says he was never bitter. “I did have a mother. And my mother instilled in me that you have to forgive,” he tells Dr. Blogstein host David Brown. "When you forgive, then you can set yourself free. People who don’t forgive, they always using a part of they mind by thinkin’ about ‘this.’ They always talkin’ about, ‘Aw, this happened to me.’ I never said I didn’t make it because I came from the ghetto, I was black, I was this and that. That’s no excuse, when there’s forgiveness.”
