In Rusty’s Corner

Rusty Rubin is a veteran boxing writer

Allow me to re-state something I have said many times before, that boxing people, as a whole, are among the finest people in the world 윈도우 gcc 다운로드. They are hard-working, blue collar folks, who when they get to know you, will give you the shirt off their backs in the middle of winter. That’s the main reason I’ve been involved with the sport for many, many years. 

The 100th anniversary of the Jack Johnson – Jim Jeffries fight will be celebrated in Reno, NV 다운로드. from July 1-4. Among some of the names expected to be on hand are George Foreman and Ray ‘Boom Boom Mancini’. For more information please call the Grand Sierra Hotel in Reno. 

It wasn’t hard to see the upset that I gave out in my last column 마리오 카트 8. This week an upset win is harder to see. 

American Olympian Andre Ward is fighting in his hometown of Oakland, California, and his opponent is not a big puncher 3ds max 2018 download. I just can’t see any major problems for him on June 19th. 

Ward, 26, and undefeated at 23-0, isn’t a big puncher, winning only fifty percent of his fights via the Knockout route 오늘의 날씨 다운로드. Ward is four years younger and has fought some tougher opposition than his opponent, 30 year old Allan Green. 

Green, 30, hails from Tulsa, OK 트랙스 다운로드. and sports an impressive record of 29-1 with 20 Knockouts. 

Greene has fought seven times more than Ward, so he’s far from a pushover. At 6’2”, he’s got a slight height advantage over Ward, but it’s negated because they both have the same reach. 

All things being equal, Wards big advantage is the home-cooking that Oakland provides. Not seeing any chance of a knockout here, you have to believe that the judges will be scoring every close round for him. 
Ward by unanimous decision.
