No Mas!

How I remember those two words. For a long time I could not reconcile them with the proud man, and boxer Roberto Duran. But “no mas” he did utter, as he abruptly turned his back on Sugar Ray Leonard that night in New Orleans. I am  older, and just now beginning to understand. No mas need not be surrender, sometimes it means that you get to stop on your own terms.
