The opponent’s left hook flattened Sameer. He lay on the ring unsure what to do.
“Rocky, Rocky, you can do it!” a familiar voice shouted from the crowd.
For a boxer who adored Rocky Balboa and the series, this was motivation enough.
Sameer got up energized and when the bout resumed, landed a sharp jab to the right of his opponent which left him floored. The referee started counting to ten. But it was just a formality.
