Hi,

I am a big fan of boxing and a good amateur during my teenage years. My three favorite champions are Mohammad Ali, Roberto DuranSugar Ray Leonard.

Today’s piece is called “Hands of Stone” after Roberto Duran, his nickname being “Hands of Stone”. I know he was a controversial character but one of his most famous quotes “I would rather be a hammer than a nail” – I think is brilliant.

There is a movie coming out soon of his life story & I am looking forward to seeing it.

I can tell you that to carve these slates I needed “Hands of Stone” myself !

Hope you like, Thanks  🙂
