    This guy from Canada gets a lot of the big ones in NYC. I never could understand that. There are plenty of decent refs like Lipton and others that could replace him at a lot less expense. Very strange goings on here but then I have always been amazed at the nauseous politics of boxing where they use a shotgun rather than a sharp knife to hurt one another.

    There’s an article here and I’m going to write it.

    Who is the referee? Wonder if Lipton will do this one. He seems to be blocked out of the big ones. SAD

    That is pretty damn awesome for the Krusher!
