In Rusty’s Corner

Rusty Rubin is a veteran boxing writer

 I urge that my readers refer to the end of this column and also to do their small share to help myself and others in the fight against cancer. Breakthroughs have been made and we may be seeing the beginning of the end, God willing of this horrible disease.

FYI, I do not have cancer and as far as I know,  no one in my family has ever had it, so like most people, I’ve seen the ravages of this terrible disease, but I’ve also been blessed. I’m simply asking the readers for stories of inspiration and miracles, not money. The stories I’m seeking do not have to be boxing related or religion based, just honest instances you’ve experience and want to share to help others 스페인하숙 3회 다운로드. Your stories can help prolong and hopefully save many lives.

One pick and out this week. On March 9, the ageless wonder Bernard Hopkins meets Tavoris Cloud for the IBF light-heavyweight title.

The bout will be held at the Barclay Center in Brooklyn, NY.

Hopkins, 48, is giving 17 years to the undefeated Cloud but at 6’1” he stands three inches above Cloud, although Cloud has a 1” longer reach.

BHOP is 52-6-2 with 32 knockouts. Cloud has won all of his 24 fights, 19 coming via the KO route.

For anyone else fighting at that age right now, I’d say pack it in 다운로드. For Hopkins I simply say your ring experience and knowledge of the game gives you a huge edge.

They say time waits for no man, but I say it stands still for Hopkins.

Tough fight, but I pick BHOP to win a narrow decision.

Sad to report the passing of Mel Turnbow, a great boxing guy from Australia; Maxie Docuson, 84, New Orleans great and Mayfield Pennington 82.

Finally, “My 2013 New Year’s resolution was to spend the rest of my life by helping others, and I really need everyone’s help to do that. Just  by putting a smile on someone’s face helps to heal, not to mention giving yourself an uplifting feeling.

Keep punching, always….Rusty
