Mate Parlov: Priča o pjesniku i borcu

Foto: Wikipedia

Postoje naši sportski velikani, a postoje i prave legende, gotovo pa bogovi hrvatskoga sporta. Naš najuspješniji boksač, Mate Parlov, svakako je spadao u red najvećih. Kako bismo odali počast ovom sportskom velikanu, preko vikenda smo “hodočastili” u njegov kafić Mate u Puli iz kojeg vam donosimo i nekoliko fotki.

Parlova se slavilo diljem bivše države, a u svojoj karijeri nakupio se toliko prestižnih odličja i medalja da vjerojatno nije ni znao kamo bi sa svima njima. Pa ipak, usprkos tome, ostao je skroman i prizeman čovjek. Nakon povlačenja iz sporta, povukao se i s javne scene.

Nije ga zanimalo življenje na račun vlastite slave ni ičiji hvalospjevi. Sve do svoje smrti, utočište je bio našao u maloj birtiji koju je sam otvorio te u njoj radio kao konobar i vlasnik.

U svojoj dvadesetogodišnjoj karijeri imao je 310 amaterskih i 29 profesionalnih boksačkih mečeva. O njegovoj izvrsnosti govori zapanjujući podatak o broju njegovih pobjeda i poraza. Kao amater bio je poražen samo 13 puta (!) a kao profesionalni boksač tek 3 puta!

Najveći hrvatski sportaš

Osam je puta osvojio titulu prvaka Jugoslavije, pet puta bio je najbolji na cijelom Balkanu, dva puta je postao prvak Europe, a 1974. postao je i prvi svjetski prvak-amater. Godine 1972. vratio se s Olimpijade u Munchenu sa zlatnom medaljom u poluteškaškoj kategoriji.

Nije uopće upitno da je upravo on najbolji hrvatski i jugoslavenski boksač svih vremena, a već za života su se o njemu pjevali hvalospjevi i proglašavalo ga se najboljim domaćim sportašem 20. stoljeća!

Ovaj ekscentrični čovjek uz boks je imao još jednu ogromnu strast, a to je bila poezija! Mnogima bi se moglo učiniti čudnim što čovjek poput njega, koji je tolike ljude profesionalno “protisnuo kroz šake”, ima interes i za najnježniju od svih umjetnosti. Pa ipak, to ne iznenađuje kad sagledamo širu sliku – i veliki je Hemingway bio pisac i boksač, a sličnih je “grubo-nježnih” afiniteta bio i poznati američki pjesnik Charles Bukowski.

Mate Parov imao je prepoznatljiv stil borbe. Boksao je strateški, odmjereno i proračunato, želeći uzdrmati protivnika serijama manjih udaraca. U borbi se stjecao dojam da mu se nikud ne žuri. Takav je bio i u privatnom životu, nakon što se povukao iz svijeta sporta.

Posve posebna ličnost

Nakon što je sam prestao boksati, prihvatio je izazov da na jedno vrijeme postane izbornik jugoslavenske reprezentacije na olimpijskim igrama, s kojih su se njegovi sportaši vratili s četiri medalje.

Parlov se službeno povukao iz sporta nakon Olimpijskih igara 1984. godine, a od tad je praktički nestao iz medija. U malobrojnim intervjuima koje je od tad dao, stalno je isticao da ga ne zanima stara slava i da jedino želi voditi svoj mali kafić “Mate” koji je bio otvorio u Puli, družiti se s ljudima koji na njega ne gledaju kao na zvijezdu te uživati u sitnim životnim radostima poput čitanja poezije.

Najdraži pjesnici bili su mu, kako je u par prigoda sam navodio, Silvije Strahimir Kranjčević, Petar Preradović, Antun Gustav Matoš, Dobriša Cesarić, Laza Kostić i Mak Dizdar. U krugu svojih užih prijatelja bio je na glasu kao čovjek koji zna napamet impresivan broj stihova svojih omiljenih stvaralaca.

Mate Parlov inače je bio rodom iz Ričica kraj Imotskog, no rodio se u Splitu. Preminuo je 2008. godine od raka pluća. No, legende poput njega su neuništive, i ni malo ne sumnjamo da će se o njemu još pisati i za 50 i za 100 godina od danas.
