Carmen Basilio: "Nobody could ever change my mind about being a boxer. My mother had a fit. 'Get rid of that dirty rotten game' she'd say all the time. I'd say, 'Ma, that's what I want to be... that's what I want to do and I am going to be a world champion. I am going to pay off your mortgages and you aren't going to owe anybody anything.' If I didn't do anything the rest of my whole career I did that for my mother and father. I took them out of debt. When I made enough money boxing I walked into the house, and I laid down the mortgage and the deeds. My dad had tears in his eyes." Book jacket.
