Nicholas Sparks wrote about dreams on the book entitled “Three Weeks with my brother” and quoted “Dreams are always crushing when they don’t come true. But it’s the simple dreams that are often the most painful because they seem so personal, so reasonable, so attainable. You’re always close enough to touch, but never quite close enough to hold and it’s enough to break your heart.”
Michael Domingo has been dreaming about being a world champion someday. He has been dreading for that time he raises his two arms in the air and wave that coveted championship belt. At 31 years old Michael doesn’t have the luxury of time. But he knows he have been working hard for that title shot. It wasn’t his fault when all the bantamweight champions avoided him. He is just a high risk low reward fighter having 14 early losses on his career but it was due to poor management and lack of preparation. Others could have folded out and call it quits but it never got into his mind. He knows that the road less traveled is difficult but once we know, understand and accept its difficult then life is no longer difficult.
He won fights when he wasn’t supposed to. Schooling the once undefeated Miguel Roman, Knocking out former world champion challenger Jose Navarro and knocking out Luis Melendez the person responsible for Z Gorres abrupt retirement.
Now Michael will be fighting on an eliminator fight for the IBF Bantamweight title this October just a step away in fulfilling his ultimate dream. Just close enough to touch, but never quite close enough to hold. He still has to go through higher and steeper mountains but Michael never doubted himself. After all he has been through quitting doesn’t belong on his vocabulary.
