Caught the episode this morning. Perseverance is a strength not many have, it's not something you're born with either. It's something that was given to Ruslan because of his hard life growing up, where he was always fight just to survive. When you're hungry and you don't have to eat. You persevere. When you're so cold and wet yet you still must cut logs and carry them back just to get some warmth... You persevere. When you endure the hunger and privation of a camp, when you step into the ring and your opponent is thudding shots into your body and face.. You persevere. Any true champion has to have the ability to persevere through whatever adversity he may face in or out of the ring. If you do not give up, you still have a chance at victory.
