Don King, on Mike Tyson


"Why would anyone expect him to come out smarter?
He went to prison, not to Princeton."

and the dancers hit each other."

UFC 217 results: Georges St-Pierre chokes out Michael Bisping to capture middleweight title



 

Georges St-Pierre choked Michael Bisping completely unconscious to win the middleweight title at UFC 217.


 The top of the UFC 217 billing saw longtime UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre make his long awaited return to action, after nearly four years on the sidelines, to choke Michael Bisping unconscious to win the UFC middleweight title.

GSP had a strong start to the fight, wobbling Bisping late in the opening round, but began to slow down a bit towards the end of the second. GSP would drop his foe in the third round with a blazing left hook, and proceeded to strangle the life out of the tough Brit.

Wow, just wow! St-Pierre is just the fourth two-division champion in UFC history, joining Randy Couture, B.J. Penn, and Conor McGregor on the list of fighters who’ve achieved this.

Aaron Hernandez had CTE


Aaron Hernandez had CTE, the brain disease associated with repeated concussions

BOSTON (AP) — Aaron Hernandez's lawyer says the former New England Patriots tight end's brain showed severe signs of the degenerative brain disease chronic traumatic encephalopathy.

In a news conference at his offices, attorney Jose Baez says testing showed that Hernandez had a severe case of the disease.

CTE can be caused by repeated head trauma and leads to symptoms like violent mood swings, depression and other cognitive difficulties. Hernandez killed himself in April in the jail cell where he was serving a life-without-parole sentence for a 2013 murder. His death came just hours before the Patriots visited the White House to celebrate their latest Super Bowl victory.

CTE can only be diagnosed in an autopsy. A recent study found evidence of the disease in 110 of 111 former NFL players whose brains were examined.

CTE has been linked with repeated concussions and involves brain damage particularly in the frontal region that controls many functions including judgment, emotion, impulse control, social behavior and memory.

A star for the University of Florida when it won the 2008 title, Hernandez dropped to the fourth round of the NFL draft because of trouble in college that included a failed drug test and a bar fight. His name had also come up in an investigation into a shooting.

In three seasons with the Patriots, Hernandez joined Rob Gronkowski to form one of the most potent tight end duos in NFL history. In 2011, his second season, Hernandez caught 79 passes for 910 yards and seven touchdowns to help the team reach the Super Bowl, and he was rewarded with a $40 million contract.

But the Patriots released him in 2013, shortly after he was arrested in the killing of semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd, who was dating the sister of Hernandez's fiancee. Hernandez was convicted and sentenced to life in prison; the conviction was voided because he died before his appeals were exhausted, though that decision is itself being appealed.

A week before his suicide, Hernandez was acquitted in the 2012 drive-by shootings of two men in Boston. Prosecutors had argued that Hernandez gunned the two men down after one accidentally spilled a drink on him in a nightclub, and then got a tattoo of a handgun and the words "God Forgives" to commemorate the crime.

Detention

Stability and Endurance for Boxing | Stance Training

Inline image 1








In this video I discuss the importance of stance training and static position holds and how they apply to boxing. Improve stability in your legs and footwork, increase punching power and muscular endurance. Improve your ability to decelerate with footwork so you can punch wherever you land.

Connor McGregor showed good foot work against Floyd "Money" Mayweather but terrible punching technique and power.

Sad Story of Prichard Colon: A fighter who was left in a persistent vegetative state after a fight

How one fight changed Prichard Colon's life.Outside the Lines tells the story of up and coming boxing prospect Prichard Colon, who after a bout in 2015 was left in a persistent vegetative sWINTER PARK, Fla. -- In his bedroom at his mother's house, Prichard Colon, 24, is surrounded by images of the boxer he used to be.

His head, elevated by pillows atop the incline of a hospital bed, comes to the mid-section of his depiction on a fringed, life-sized tapestry hanging on a wall of diagonal wood paneling. He's shown in a fighter's stance, and above that, victorious, with arms raised.
Colon appeared to have the skill and the will to fulfill the dreams that he first expressed as a little boy in this central Florida home where his parents raised him. Now he lies here as testament to the peril that accompanies prizefighting promise.

"He always knew what he wanted in life -- he'd say, 'Mommy, I want to be a professional boxer, and I want to represent Puerto Rico, and I want to be a world champion,'" said Nieves Colon of when her son was in elementary school.

ESPN recently visited the Colon family for Deportes' SC Reportajes and Outside the Lines features airing over the next week.

"Imagine this is the ring, you had your heavy bag, (and) right here, (the) punching bag," said Colon's father, in the garage where he schooled him.

Jose Uzcategui Sucker Punched By Uncle Of Andre Dirrell


 
Published on May 21, 2017
Uzcategui,
26, was disqualified for the hit after the eighth-round bell had
already sounded, sending his opponent to the canvas at the MGM National
Harbor in Maryland.

And as the referees deliberated the result
and doctors attended to Dirrell, 33, his uncle got into the ring and
hooked Uzcategui in the jaw.

According to ESPN’s Dan Rafael:
“Dirrell’s uncle, Leon Lawson, who punched Uzcategui after the fight was
over, is wanted by cops and they don’t know where he is.”

Lawson, who is part of Dirrell’s coaching team, was clearly riled by Uzcategui hitting his nephew after the bell.

But according to some witnesses, the disqualification was a harsh call on the Venezuelan.

In
video footage of the fight, the referee could be heard several times
telling members of Dirrell’s team to “sit down” before saying repeatedly
“I need a doctor” as the Michigan fighter knelt sprawled on the canvas.

The referee then said “he got hit after the bell” three times as Dirrell received medical attention.

Dirrell was then turned on to his back and the referee announced he would disqualify Uzcategui.

Then
as broadcasters were looking at replays of Uzcategui’s late
combination, landed less than a second after the bell sounded, replays
were shown of Lawson’s nasty response.

The stunned Venezuelan did not retaliate after the sucker punch from Lawson, appearing to look on wide-eyed and stunned.
