Dewey Bozella Realizes a Dream Long Deferred

Dewey Bozella served 26 years in prison for a murder he did not commit, and earned two college degrees while behind bars. But his dream was to fight as a professional boxer. On October 15, he achieved that goal, winning a cruiserweight bout at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. He hung up his gloves after that, but won another honor in 2011: the ESPN Arthur Ashe Award for Courage.
