I hear the fat lady singing. The future of “Ringsports Magazine” looks like a mirage. But there is some interest in its sister website “Ringsports.com”. While the site continues to remain in a state of limbo, I will have high hopes that a deal will be worked out 아프리카 다시 보기 다운로드. For the readers, it changes nothing. The same great sites that are publishing these articles will continue to do so.
As I will be taking some much-needed time off, this will be my last article for the year; I will endeavor to make some predictions on upcoming fights.
On Dec. 2, in Australia, Roy Jones Jr. returns to action against Danny Green for the IBO cruiserweight title 유니파잉 소프트웨어 다운로드. Jones should win, but it’s not going to be an easy fight for him.
Jones by TKO.*
On Dec. 5th, in Atlantic City, middleweights go at it when Paul Williams takes on always tough Sergio Martinez. ShowTime carries this action.
Good action fight on HBO, but Williams is just coming into his own as a fighter. He knows how to use his reach for a big edge 다운로드.
Williams by unanimous decision.*
On Dec. 12, also on HBO, a not so exciting heavyweight bout (when was the last time anyone saw an ‘exciting’ heavyweight?) takes place in Switzerland between aging Champ Vitali Klitschko and contender Kevin Johnson.
Age or not, Klitschko wins by stoppage.
Finally on Dec. 19th, on PPV from Ohio, Kelly Pavlik, recovered from a hand injury, takes on Miguel Espino 다운로드. Pavlik is just too good and gets some home cooking, although none will be needed.
Pavlik by early TKO.***
While the papers haven’t been signed, Manny Pacquiao’s fairly easy win over Miguel Cotto, should be the signal for a major money maker for both Pac Man and
Mayweather. Negotiations have already begun for this mega-match-up.
No matter the outcome of these negotiations, Mayweather thinks that since he is the bigger draw, he deserves a much larger percentage of the purse 티맥스오에스 다운로드.
With due respect to Floyd, the Hispanic fighters pack them in far more than Mayweather. This could give Mayweather an excuse for not fighting Pac Man yet, and instead take on the aging but dangerous Shane Mosley. Mosley can still fight and if he defeats Mayweather, the really big money goes out the window.
I just don’t see that happening. My guess is Pacquiao, a proud man, will take a decent offer and give Mayweather the bigger bucks 다운로드. Of course, Pacquiao will make big bucks as well.***
While it’s not exactly a boxing book, my good friend Johnny Ortiz has written a great must-read called “My Life Among The Icons”. This book offers a great insight into the lives of famous Los Angeles characters, boxing folks included. You can pick it up on the bookstores on Dec. 6th.***
Olympian Andre Ward deserves much praise for his surprisingly easy TKO of Mikkel Kessler 다운로드. The judges had Ward ahead on all cards. Kudos goes out to Ward and his team on a fairly easy win over a tough opponent.***
Glove 2 Glove:
Prayers for the soul of veteran boxing guy Francisco Rodriquez, who passed away recently.
Prayers asked for Oscar Terrell, brother of champion Ernie, who has fallen into ill health.
Prayers for cut-man Chas Hank Henry who is down but not out in his battle against cancer 웨이보 영상 다운로드. Hank would love to hear from boxing fans everywhere, and you can write to him at 468 Copper Creek Circle, Pooler, GA. 31322.
Needless to say we need prayers for the return to health of former champ Gerald McClellan, who is confined to wheelchairs.
On behalf of these great fighters who have given their all in our great sport, we thank you for your ongoing prayers.
If you know of any boxing people in need of spiritual uplift or prayers, just drop us a line 애플 itunes 다운로드. Membership is free to all and no one will ever contact you except for prayer requests, or put your name on anyone’s mailing list. To join drop Rusty a line.
Glove2Glove, which has been an integral part of the magazine and website, is a program I wish to continue a long after I have left the sport. I want to thank Dave and Deborah Wilcox, who have offered to take over the program and promised to continue it indefinitely 다운로드. This generous offer means a lot to me.***
Thanks and God bless.***
