“The champion on the comeback trail knows this much: he was a champion. His return to glory culminates in the familiar; it confirms expectations and estimations alike. But what of the fighter who fell short of a title, he who knows painfully well how it feels to be proven wanting? The comeback trail for him isn’t about winning a title so much as earning another chance at the beckoning glory he is yet―despite what his galvanized ego assures him―to prove worthy of. He must determine whether the dream is still a reality or whether it must be altered, even abandoned altogether.”
