Book Review

Pamama Al Brown

By Adam Pollack / Guest Post

Win By KO Publications is proud to announce the release of Black Ink, by Jose Corpas. Black Ink is the long overdue biography of Panama Al Brown, a boxer so unpopular, fans stormed the ring and nearly killed him in an attack that might be considered a hate crime today. Outside the ring, the leaders of the “Manly Art” were so determined not to have a gay boxing champion that they stripped him of his recognition, without an explanation. But Brown was too good, and eventually fought his way to become recognized as the first Latino world champion. In this riveting book, Jose Corpas makes sure Al Brown is never forgotten.

Carl Frampton came into Brooklyn Barclays Center for a battle of undefeated against Leo Santa Cruz.   Cruz had his own cross to bear as his father is suffering from cancer and nearly didn’t make the trip but he proved to be the warrior in a classic battle between two equal boxers. Frampton B

Cruz hallmark has been high output with additional power punches but Frampton countered Cruz’s power and reach with excellent counterpunching.  In a battle of jabbers coming into the bout, a little over 80% of both fighters’ punches were power shots.  The jab ceased to be a weapon for either fighters.

Cruz did not use his reach to his advantage while lunging straight into Frampton vicious counterpunches.  Frampton turned this bout into a toe to toe battle.  The judges had it a majority 116-112, 117-111 and 114-114.  This was a bout that could have been scored either way but no one will complain that Cruz got ripped off or that Frampton was undeserving since he was the more accurate puncher.
