Hanshi Jerry Piddington traveled to Atlanta this last Weekend to receive the Joe Lewis Eternal Warrior Award at The Battle of Atlanta in honor of all the decades of fighting “One More Round
When your feet are so tired that you have to shuffle back to the center of the ring. Fight one more round
When your arms are so tired that you can barely lift your hands to come on guard. Fight one more round.
When your nose is bleeding and your eyes are black and you are so tired that you wish your opponent would crack you one on the jaw and put you to sleep. Fight one more round.
…Remember that the man who always fights one more round is never whipped
Gentleman Jim Corbett 1866-1933, The father of American Boxing
Quote from Joe Corley

You were a great friend and sparring partner for a man who could be rough on sparring partners. Your talent, your toughness, your humility, your humor and your friendship are all much appreciated by your friend from the ATL, by Jeff W. Smith,Bill Wallace and all the other recipients.
