Many of the newer boxing writers may not remember the date of June 16, 1983, and a fight that many think cost the life of “Irish” Billy Collins and got his trainer Carlos “Panama” Lewis and his charge Luis Resto banned from boxing 포켓몬 실버 다운로드.
While there is no way of knowing if the damage that Collins suffered in the fight caused his death in a car ‘accident’ or not, many people felt that his bout with Resto was the cause and Collins took his own life.
I won’t go into the long history of the event, that information is easily found on the internet. Suffice to say that Resto had his gloves ‘loaded’ and caused significant damage to Collins 엠바카데로 델파이 xe 다운로드.
The recent fight in Los Angeles between Shane Mosley and Antonio Margarito certainly brought back some of these horrible memories.
Before the bout in LA, a couple of weeks back, Mosley’s cornerman asked that Margarito have his hand re-wrapped in front of an inspector. During the re-wrap they found a grey, cement like substance on the hand wrap. California has never been known for closely inspecting hand-wrapping, but I would surmise that supervision would depend upon the inspector on hand for that 인스톨팩토리 다운로드.
We now have to wait and see how the California Athletic Commission handles this potentially damaging situation and have to believe that other State Commissions will follow the lead of the Golden State.
It’s hard to imagine either Margarito or his trainer not knowing what was going down here. Even if Margarito wasn’t part of the ploy, it’s hard to believe that he didn’t notice the difference in the extra weight and smell of the hand-wrap that was used 다운로드. And, if he didn’t, could that mean it was used in training as well as other fights? There are a lot of questions being raised and hopefully we will get an explanation.
We know that the problem, thankfully, was resolved before the fight, and that Mosley didn’t have the extra problem to deal with, as he won just about every round before the bout was stopped 다운로드.
The point here is that while Mosley won and escaped unscathed and without incident, how much more does an incident like this hurt boxing? To put it simply, it certainly doesn’t help.
And, in the same vein, I’m not convinced that the folks who regulate boxing in Wyoming did a smart thing by allowing Tommy Morrison to box again 새찬송가 무료 다운로드. Morrison looked great when I met him in Los Angeles last year, and told me that all his tests for HIV have come back negative. While I hope he’s correct, I never heard of the disease disappearing.
Again we must ask, is boxing being helped or hurt by allowing Morrison to fight? Tommy knocked out his opponent early. A healthy Tommy Morrison certainly would be a plus in today’s heavyweight division 다운로드.
As with the Mosley fight, one has to wonder if in the long run this event will hurt the sport of boxing.
But boxing will survive! It always does!***
On February 7, at the Pond in Anaheim, California, hard hitting Vic Darchinyan puts his IBF, WBC and WBA junior bantamweight titles on the line against Jorge Arce.
Arce, always a crowd pleaser, is moving up in weight for this match, and while he cannot be discounted, it’s hard to see how someone with a questionable defense can beat a power punching southpaw like Darchinyan 1945 게임.
This fight is more than just power vs. speed, because neither fighter really likes to go backwards. That being said, prepare for a war for as long as the bout lasts. I’ll take Darchinyan by KO, but picking a specific round here is very difficult. The fight can and probably will end with one punch, but what round that blow lands is anybody’s guess 2019 최신트로트 다운로드.
