Answer the Bell: Inventing Your Life as a Champion

Answer the Bell by Paul Vaden

Answer The Bell

Answer The Bell is Paul Vaden’s universally accessible motivational tome.

Paul Vaden is a rare individual in many ways & his motivational tome encompasses his path from a 4 year old besotted with Mohammed Ali through the by definition long & arduous path to championship glory in the ring on to what is sadly that rarest of story in the sport – post-career hyper-success. The book is written in such a way as to be accessible & useful to boxing fan & non-boxing fan alike. Few have sought to distil the self-evident requisite motivational mastery that is the hallmark of any great boxing champion into a set of tools with applications for society at large in such a frank, honest & refreshing manner as has Paul Vaden. Highly recommended.

Matt Hamilton,

Answer the Bell is a first-hand account of Vaden’s meteoric rise from the streets of San Diego and the Jackie Robinson YMCA to Las Vegas’s MGM Grand Hotel & Casino and the memorable 1995 Pettway-Vaden match when Vaden captured the world junior middleweight title with a TKO in the 12th round.

During the years of rigorous training, Vaden discovered a boxing career involved much more than developing well-honed skills, perfect timing and expert footwork. Vaden has taken all the skill sets learned in the boxing ring and adapted them to serve as motivational tools for helping others live, walk and breathe with the mindset of a champion, regardless of their challenges. His “Answer the Bell” program gives people specific recipes for managing stress and maintaining a balanced lifestyle.
