— I can't do it.
— I can't beat him.
— Yeah. I've been out there walkin' around, thinkin'. I mean, who am I kiddin'? I ain't even in the guy's league.
— What are we gonna do?
— I don't know.
— You worked so hard.
— It don't matter, 'cause I was nobody before.
— Don't say that.
— Oh, come on, Adrian. It's true. I was nobody. But it don't matter either, you know? So, I was thinkin'... It really don't matter if I lose this fight. It really don't matter if this guy opens my head, either. 'Cause all I wanna do is go the distance. Nobody's ever gone the distance with Creed. And if I can go that distance see, if that bell rings and I'm still standin'... I'm gonna know for the first time in my life, you see... that I weren't just another bum from the neighborhood.
