Through the second and most of the third rounds, Alfred fights intelligently, following Donatelli's  advice to "stick and run," despite the boos and insults from the crowd. At the end of the fight,  however, Alfred thinks he can move in and fight the weary Rivera at close range. Although he has  some success with this approach, Rivera hits him in the groin with a painful blow at the final bell.  Alfred wins the fight, but Donatelli is displeased that Alfred allowed himself to be hit at the end. Back at the apartment after the fight, Aunt Pearl shows concern over Alfred's injuries but reveals that  she, too, had a dream when she was seventeen — to join the chorus at the Apollo Theater — but her  mother would not allow it. She doesn't necessarily regret the way her life turned out (she has no idea  if anything might have come of the singing opportunity), but she regrets not having the chance to try.
