Being A Fighter.

Being a fighter, you are really up when you win. Everyone is there, excited, wanting to be around you. I signed a few fight posters for people I didn’t know, but watched me fight that night, one time, the owner of the casino in Verona NY told me and my then trainer, my fight was the fight of the night, true story, he was a native American, he told me he enjoyed watching me fight.

Losing can be wretched, you feel like you left everyone down.
I lost a fight once ans was embarrassed to go outside and walk around, I was a trainer at Bally ‘ s fitness then, and though everyone was looking at me because I lost.

Being a fighter, the punishment continues after the fight, outside the ring. It’s tough. You never want to let anyone down, more so, yourself.
I have been so utterly disappointed with myself in Amis of tears, privately, alone, going over what went wrong.

You can be so high, then low.
And there is the spector, whom, can dish the harshest criticism, lacking the balls to ever get into that ring.

Being a fighter has aided me more ways than one in life, it has helped me rise from extreme failure, really from the ashes, to be better than ever.
Being a fighter has also taught me mote about myself than anyrhi ng else ever could.

I did the best I could then, but could have done a lot more as I look back, and that there allows me and pushes me to overachieve and be far better now, exceed, drive harder now.

It all comes full circle.

Canelo-Khan After Thoughts.

Khan

What a shot! Throw a low lazy jab and keep that left low and this is what happens. Canelo didn’t need to time him, he saw Khan’s pattern and waited for this opening.

You know, it’s not just that Khan gets knocked out. It’s how he’s knocked out, the way it looks and how his body reacts, particularly the Garcia KO.

Last night he was OUT, lying there, respect for Canelo for immediately kneeling down close to him, ( while fans we jeering him, and losers on FB posting mock memes of Khan) as it was equally startling the way he went down hard to the one who laid the hands, the concern from the sheer brutality of it, provoked Canelo’s sincere act of kindness/concern.

If I’m close to Amir, he has a farewell fight in England and that’s it, because, once he’s touched hard he falls hard and may never wake up again, if it happens again.
He made A LOT of money last night.

The end….

GGG vs Canelo will happen sooner than later. The time is right and the perfect set up fight for it was last night, Golden Boy knew Canelo would ice Khan, and Khan brought the name for that inevitable outcome.

The coals are now red hot as is the market value for this fight. Everyone involved WILL get paid VERY well far beyond than if this fight doesn’t happen.

I like Canelo but when he yelled something in Spanish that was then translated in English to “I’m Mexican, we don’t fuck around!” in regards to inviting GGG in the ring I can’t help but notice his fucking around with catch weights and demanding the middleweight kingpin to meet him and defend HIS legitimate world title at one.
Do you really think Salvador Sanchez, Chavez, Marquez, Morales, Barrera, would ever do such a cowardly act if they were in Canelo’s shoes???

Canelo Alvarez, the light heavyweight middleweight catch weight champion of the world.

The Most Underated Heavyweight Champion Ever.

How and who do you think Mike Tyson modeled and honed his icy and lethal intimidation from? His aura of destruction?

Who did the young George Foreman mimic his viscous punching power, fierce scowl, and unforgiving nasty ring presence after from their countless rounds of sparring each other?

The most forgotten, underrated, underappreciated, misunderstood, cold blooded, hardest punching heavyweight who killed and chilled with his looks, having opponents beat once they climbed the steps of the ring where they entered their fate…. Sonny Charles Liston.

Sonny knocks Rocky Marciano’s ass out COLD mowing through him. Liston tames and stops Joe Frazier in a head on collision!

The media painted and portrayed Liston as an angry, impressionable brute where to those who really knew him, knew the truth, WAS human and a good man, he just came and saw you come fight night with nothing but destruction on his mind, thinking fuck the pleasantries.

Sonny Liston may have been slow with hand and foot, but he had that touch of sleep what the hell just happened power fueled by his menacing attitude that made him a force to be reckoned with. Ask former world heavyweight champion Floyd Patterson who Liston iced quickly twice.

Enjoy…

Back With A Vengance & Making History.

COTTO

Props to Freddie Roach and Miguel Cotto. Great fight plan and better execution of it from Cotto..

Amazing on how 1 round can win you the fight setting the tempo of it. Miguel came out sharp and hungry,, 3 knockdowns does that.

It appears Cotto has more fight left in him than Manny Pacquio. Roach’s style really fit Cotto’s strengths while also strengthening his weaknesses.

Cotto looked amazing for the wars he has been through.

Props to Sergio for displaying mad heart. He gave no excuses and gave all credit to Cotto. Class act.

It appears the well has run dry on Sergio’s once marvelous Maravilla physical gifts. He simply does not have enough boxing skill/fundamentals to compete at this level anymore without those uber reflexes and speed he once possessed.

Happy for Cotto to be the first 4 division Puerto Rican World Champion.

GREAT fighter.

Damn! Nobody expected a 1st round like that last Saturday night. That round was the fight.

Cotto displayed he still has plenty left with the right trainer and strategist in Roach.
