In Rusty’s Corner

Rusty Rubin is a veteran boxing writer

A number of stories of varying importance occurred the past few weeks.
First, Manny Pacquiao agreed to fight Antonio Margarito in Texas in November. Allow me to add my name to those who disagree with Margarito ‘EVER’ being licensed again, anywhere, after being caught with the equivalent of cement in his mitts before his fight with Shane Mosley 윈도우10 64비트 다운로드. How do you spell ‘attempted murder?’ One thing for sure, this makes for a very interesting match.

Pacquiao shows a lot of class and courage by taking this match. Margarito, at even strength has a big height, reach and weight advantage. It’s a tough fight for Pac Man.

Evander ‘The Mixed Deal’ Holyfield wants to continue fighting, this time against Sherman “Tank” Williams 다운로드. I don’t consider what Evander does fighting, but I guess it qualifies if you compare it to most of the heavyweights out there at the present time.

What might be a decent fight between two good heavyweights could be the match between Wladamir Klitschko and Samuel Peter. At least they are both still breathing, but like our sport, just barely.

Floyd Mayweather has shown some deep racial prejudice by insulting Manny Pacquiao 리눅스 배포판. Maybe he realizes that it may just be the only way to beat him. He sure appears afraid to meet him in the ring. Still, racial prejudice should have gone out of sports 100 years ago. Manny wins this round, at least in the ‘class’ department. Although he has since apologized, Floyd should have shown more class.

Manny, on the other hand largely ignored the remarks asf 동영상 다운로드. There is never a need to reply to stupidity. This is an incident that America didn’t need, especially a week before the 9th anniversary of the World Trade Center disaster. Mayweather should have known better.

One of the answers I got from a reader of my last column, as to the best pound for pound fighters in the world was Kelly Pavlik 다운로드. Kelly is a good choice and a solid fighter, but in the top 10? Maybe. As I had written, there’s no right or wrong, just opinions.

Don’t forget to fly the American Flag on 9/11, and fly it high.

Glove 2 Glove:

Please say prayers for the soul of John Arum, son of promoter and Top Rank head honcho, Bob. John was killed in a mountain climbing accident a7x 다운로드.
Please say prayers for the soul of former pro boxer Art Hernandez, who left us at age 69.

Prayers also requested for the soul of boxing guy George Amato, who went to meet his final reward recently.

Prayers for the complete return to good health to my old friend, promoter, and ex-wrestler Jack ‘Moe’ Smith who had complete reconstructive knee surgery a couple of weeks back 토지 피복 지도 다운로드. Moe’s a fighter and I’m sure will make a complete recovery.

Tough fighter and great competitor Scott LeDoux, who was always in shape (as I prefer to remember him). Scott has ALS and has been given less than six months to live.

On behalf of these great fighters who have given their all in our great sport, we thank you for your ongoing prayers.
