The Toughest Guy In Boxing

나팔바지

By Young Bob Sproggins

On July 19, 1990 at the Kingdome in Seattle, Washington, Craig “Gator” Bodzianokski from Chicago, Illinois stepped into the ring to challenge the reigning and defending WBA Cruiserweight Champion of the World, Robert Daniels, from Miami, Florida. After 12 rounds of action it went to the judges’ scorecards where Daniels won a unanimous decision and retained his Title 다운로드.

However, there was something so unique about this fight that never before or since, in the history of boxing, has this situation been repeated. Bodzianowski had only one leg 다운로드!

(Part #2 of 2)

In Part 1 of “Boxing’s Unsung Heroes”, I referenced an article by Ted Sares Diffuse download. In his piece, Sares mentions a couple of Chicago guys, Anthony Ivory, and Alfredo “Freddy” Cuevas. Two tough pros who took on all comers. With an overall record of 26 wins – 10 losses -1 draw, in a career that spanned 13 years, Cuevas had KO wins over Charles Murray and Wilfredo Rivera 데몬 가상드라이브 다운로드. He came up short in bouts against Marco Antonio Rubio, Jermain Taylor, John Duddy, Santiago Samaniego, Kasim Ouma, Kingsley Ikeke, Michael Rask and he split a couple of bouts with fellow Chicagoan Anthony Ivory 대통령의 시간 다운로드.

Ivory’s Herculean record is a virtual “Who’s Who”. Boxrec  lists his record as 32 wins – 78 Losses – 6 draws 초서체 다운로드. But in those 78 losses, he was stopped only 5 times. Ivory went the distance and lost decisions to the following future, or former, World Champions . Their records, at the time they fought Ivory, are in parenthesis:  Kelly Pavlik (18-0), Yuri Foreman (12-0), Keith Holmes (36-3), Felix Sturm (6-0), Silvio Bronco (35-4-2), Mikkel Kessler (7-0), Sammy Serrano (49-6-1), Julio Cesar Vasquez (Twice 37-1 & 58-3), Davey Hilton (27-1-1), Carl Daniels (25-0), Simon Brown (35-2), Laurent Boudouani (18-1), Winky Wright (Twice 27-1 & 30-1), Chris Pyatt (42-4), Vincent Pettway (42-6-1), Hacine Cherifi (25-3-1), Diosbelys Hurtado (16-0), Akhmed Kotiev (twice 14-1 & 18-1), Armand Krajnc (15-0) and KO Artist Yori Boy Campas (52-0). A true globetrotter, Ivory fought in 15 different countries. This is a guy who knew how to survive in the ring…

Nice to see English boxer Martin Murray get some favorable publicity recently, in an article by Ted Sares 연속지적도 다운로드. Murray, previously featured on www.dmboxing.com is a real Pro 다운로드. What a career this guy has. His record stands at 39-6-1. In 46 pro fights he was stopped only once, by Triple G, in 2015, for G’s WBA, IBO & WBC Middleweight Titles.  He dropped decisions against Sergio Martinez for the WBC World Middleweight Title, dropped a split decision to Arthur Abraham, in Germany, for the WBO World Super Middleweight Title and fought Felix Sturm to a highly controversial Draw, in Germany, with Sturm’s WBA Super World Middleweight Title on the line 5인의 탐정가 다운로드. He also lost a decision to Billy Joe Saunders, on December 04, 2020 in a bout for the WBO Super Middleweight Title. That’s five (5) shots at a world title and along the way he captured the WBA Interim World Middleweight Title java 첨부 파일 일괄. Hope I got all the alphabets right… but It doesn’t matter. This kid Murray can fight! 

Unfortunately none of his fights have been on US soil 다운로드. For years Murray had been denied a US Visa, due to legal problems. I heard he finally was able to get things straightened out but, as of this date, he has yet to set foot in a US Ring. Perhaps he never will. The losers here have been the US fight fans, who never really got a chance to know Murray or see him fight in person. I sure wish this guy would have come up in Southern California!

NOTE:  Steve Corbo, is a veteran of more than 35 years in the boxing game, has been a co-host and color commentator for televised boxing events, as well as a professional boxing judge 다운로드. He has worked with professional boxers in a variety of capacities, and has written several articles on boxing that have been published in various periodicals 다운로드. He has made his mark as a top boxing ring announcer, especially in Europe, where he announced major WBC, WBA, IBF, and WBO World Championship title bouts televised worldwide 리모콘 어플. Harold Lederman, Boxing Hall of Fame member and a part of HBO Boxing’s broadcast team, called Steve Corbo “one of the best boxing ring announcers in the entire world.” A Chicago native, Steve has also been heard as the backup PA announcer for the Chicago Blackhawks NHL hockey team 영어책 다운로드.

I will always remember this fight because I was there, at ringside, close enough to reach out and touch Cleveland Denny. In the late 1970’s my friend Johnny Lira was the USBA Lightweight Champion and one of world’s top rated lightweights 7공주 mp3 다운로드. In ’79 he lost in his bid to capture the WBA World Lightweight Title.

A year later, Ring Magazine had him rated #5 in the world , he was looking to get back into the mix and get another shot at the title. Johnny was going to fight Gaetan Hart on the undercard of Sugar Ray Leonard vs Roberto Duran, up in Montreal. The bout was scheduled for June 20,1980. But they weren’t able to make the fight and Cleveland Denny wound up in the ring facing Hart, instead of Lira. Johnny, myself and Mauro DiFiore decided to go up to Montreal anyway and see the show. What a show it was, taking place at the Olympic Stadium and in the same city where just four years earlier Sugar Ray Leonard won a Gold Medal in the 1976 Olympics. Johnny was on top of his game so we were with Angelo Dundee, Wilfredo Benitez, media guys like the dean of all boxing historians Hank Kaplan, etc. We were surrounded by boxing royalty. We had no tickets, but somebody hooked us up and we got in on some TV/Radio Press Passes! We had no assigned seats! I ended up sitting in Leonard’s corner, on a folding chair I picked up from someplace, next to Joe Frazier. We talked about his son Marvis, who was an amateur at the time, and had just won the National’s.

By Edgar Gonzalez / Founder and Publisher of MyBoxingFans.com

C.J 다운로드. Ross is the only judge that scored the Mayweather-Canelo fight as a draw, 114-114. The other two judges scored it for Mayweather 116-112 (Dave Moretti) and 117-111 (Craig Metcalfe), giving the pound-for-pound king a majority decision victory 다운로드.

After the fight boxing expert Teddy Atlas went on ESPN and said Ross’ score was a travesty and suggested she was a criminal.

Everyone in the arena was shocked by C.J.’s call … including Floyd Mayweather who mouthed the words, “What the f***” when the announcer revealed he won on a majority decision and not unanimous 태교 음악 mp3 다운로드.

This is not the first time Cynthia J. Ross has been in a controversy scoring.

Ross is the same judge who awarded a controversial split-decision victory to Timothy Bradley against Manny Pacquiao and she loves giving draws 다운로드.

At the top of the charts in Great Britain, “The Fight” has recently been released in the United States with the audio version being recorded by Corbo and released by Oasis Audio 다운로드. Two-time World Champion boxer, Nigel Benn, has enthusiastically endorsed “The Fight”.

As expected, in the semifinals, the fix was in once again in Marlen Esparza’s bout with the Chinese boxer 카라왕 다운로드. When Marlen was down 3-2 after the first round, a round in which the Chinese boxer did absolutely nothing but wait and step back and occasionally throw a counter that missed, and never came close to landing a punch, I knew then they were going to “do” Marlen 다운로드. Afterwards, when asked if she should have been more aggressive and tried even harder, Marlen made a poignant, insightful, and accurate comment, whichwas that if she took more risks and threw more punches, they would have had her down by even more 다운로드. And that is a sad but truthful commentary on amateur boxing, and also explains why these bouts have utterly lost their entertainment value. The more you try to be aggressive against these boxers who look to wait and jump back and only throw quick arm-punch counters, the more the international judges will have you losing 알 마인드 맵 다운로드. So Marlen tried to play their game as best she could, but nevertheless, she was an American, which meant that if it was close she was going to lose. You damn near have to kill your opponent to win in this tournament 다운로드.

Claressa Shields did what she needed to do to get into the final, which was beat the living hell out of her opponent 다운로드. She has blazing fast hands, plenty of pop on her punches, and I love the way she puts together her punches in bunches, firing fast and hard combinations 다운로드. She works the body and head. I also like the way she does not allow her foes to clinch her much, for she really works that inside short right very well and makes them pay for trying to lay in on her ati 그래픽 드라이버 다운로드. And as soon as she gets some room, she follows up with more blows.
