I currently reside in Rome Georgia and have been published as a writer along with being an avid life long fan of the "Sweet Science" chiefly among other sports.
Among my favorite memories as a child include staying up late to watch ESPN and USA network boxing coverage and then watching the big premium weekend fights while visiting my grandparents.
As an adult, I watch all the fights a through z and consider myself somewhat of a modern historian.
My favorite fighters include the late Arturo Gatti, Kostya Tszyu, Evander Holyfield and Manny Pacquiao just to name a few.
I'm excited to see the sport I love back on primetime network t.v. and am optimistic about the future of boxing.
Former #1 middleweight contender Tony Ayala Jr. was found dead of an apparent drug overdose inside of his family's boxing gym in San Antonio Texas.
Fringe contender Michel Soro scored an upset fourth round TKO over once beaten "Jersey Boy" Glen Tapia who was coming off three consecutive knockout wins, most recently over former title contender Daniel Dawson in March.
When I sit down as a boxing fan to carefully examine and mull over just which degree of greatness Floyd Mayweather's long, wealthy and illustrious career in the sport will be deemed at I come away a bit confused myself for a variety of reasons.
After an interesting, if not so thoroughly entertaining chess match for the heavyweight championship of the world, I, as a boxing fan feel as though we may yet bear witness to the changing of the guard much sooner rather than later in a heavyweight division that has been ruled with an iron fist or "steel hammer" so to say for over a decade.
