    Bowe was in the same league as Lewis, even if on the downslide.  Strange how panic attacks sneak in on insecure cat’s feet.  I don’t know if bernie is right or not, but if so, makes me wonder if the HBO commentators were also in on the open secret.  If so, it’s pretty creepy . . .

    The first thing which needs to be said about this fight, is how Golota had a panic attack in his dressing room 30 minutes before the opening bell. A Doctor was called, who sedated the fighter with medication. The Lewis camp aware of what was happening, then immediately “Jumped on Golota” at the opening bell.
