Boxing Is Your Job
It is your job and you cannot be late for work. The weigh in was slated for 4 P.M. Friday afternoon. My heavyweight was at home in Virginia Beach and instructed to leave no later than 8 A.M. At 5:30 P.M. he was just coming out of the tunnel near Baltimore. The New jersey Commission scratched his fight and I scratched my head....right after it nearly exploded. The New jersey Commission is notoriously tough and most State Boxing Admins would have made an accommodation. So, Joey did not fight and I sent him back to Virginia with my sharp words and disgust still ringing in his ears.
I went to the fights anyway. It was a decent card with a few good bouts, some mediocre bouts, and one terrible bout.
We are looking forward to Pittsburgh next Saturday and Resort's Casino on April 27th. Stay tuned.In the meantime, anyone want a part time job babysitting a 23 year old 6'4" Italian-American Heavyweight...please apply.
