Pain Don’t Hurt
This is the gritty memoir that I'll be giving away tomorrow (Saturday) morning at 7:30 on Puffman Sports Trivia. In "Pain Don't Hurt; Fighting Inside And Outside The Ring", kickboxer & MMA fighter Mark "Fightshark" Millerv documents his struggle to make peace with the demons spawned by his tragic family history. Born with a congenital heart defect & Type 1 diabetes, Miller came to possess the talent & willpower to make a career as a professional fighter, despite having to endure open-heart surgery at age 34. Yet the shadows of an abusive upbringing drove his career into a ditch the following year after he lost his father, mother, & drug-addicted older brother, all in 2007. Publishers Weekly says "the reader can't help but root for Miller." "Pain Don't Hurt; Fighting Inside And Outside The Ring" by Mark "Fightshark" Miller with Shelby Jones from HarperCollins is a story of incredible tenacity, dedication, & hard work-how one fierce competitor overcame repeated obstacles to realize his dreams. Be the 1st caller in tomorrow morning at 7:30 with the correct answer to my Puffman Sports Trivia question & WIN this new hardback book that just went on sale nationwide last week! I've come up with a sports trivia question pertaining to a world famous boxer who spent time in the slammer...THAT really narrows it down, doesn't it! Looking at "Fightshark"'s picture on the cover makes me think that this fellow could break me in half even though that I'm the Puffman & I'm not afraid of anybody OR anything outside of the basketball brackets! See you Saturday morning on Puffman Sports Trivia.
