In Rusty’s Corner

Rusty Rubin is a veteran boxing writer

With this lull in big-name boxing, I figured I’d take the opportunity to answer a few questions that have piled up in recent months.

In my last column I listed and answered five questions that are often asked to me. There were a couple I saved for this week, but I really got stuck on one of them and figured this response requires the most thought 블러드c.

Even giving this much time to think it over, I can’t come up with a complete answer, so I will ask the readers to get back to me with theirs. This is not a right or wrong answer, simply one that requires some differing points of view.

The question and I ask everyone to respond, is ‘who are the top ten pound-for- pound fighters in the world today 다운로드?

Sounds easy, right? Well, where to you go after Pacquiao, Mayweather, Juan Manual Marquez, Shane Mosley, and perhaps the other Marquez kin?

Please give me your top ten picks via e-mail to this website. Again, there is no right or wrong answers and your response would be most appreciated. I think the question itself may be the best indication as to what’s wrong with boxing 다운로드.

I can’t believe that anyone is holding their breath waiting for Evander Holyfield to fight again. If you are, you don’t know a lot about our sport. I could at least understand some of the interest in a possible Holyfield – Tyson re-match, but against Sherman “Tank” Williams? Give me a break 엑셀 무설치 다운로드.

Not that Williams doesn’t have a shot against the leader of the ‘over the hill mob’, he does. It’s just that this so-called fight means absolutely nothing to anybody, except maybe Holyfield and Williams. It’s a bore-snore.***

The California Commission will not recognize the fight between Anthony “My Gloves are Loaded” Margarito and Manny Pacquiao. The fight will have to be held elsewhere. The A,B.C. (Association of Boxing Commissioners) approved Margarito’s suspension for a year, so he is entitled to fight elsewhere. Personally, I don’t agree with the ABC on this, as fighting with cement laden gloves, to me at least, is akin to attempted murder. I see this fight heading to Nevada or Texas.***

So which aging veteran will Mayweather fight? Flip a coin, you just might come up with Rocky Juarez. But there are enough over-the hill fighters out there that it really shouldn’t matter. The only legitimate contender for the best pound-for-pound honor is Pac Man.***

Glove 2 Glove:

Please say prayers for the soul of former boxer Thomas I. Pacheco, 72, and veteran cut man Jimmy Arthur who left us at age 80.

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. 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), has ALS and has been given less than six months to live.

God listens.

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