ANOTHER BOXING TRAVESTY

December 9, 2010

OLIVER MCCALL

Congratulations to Oliver McCall. The 45-year-old drug addict added another “championship” belt to his boxing resume Tuesday. The acknowledged crack addict defeated veteran Fres Oquendo to capture the IBF Intercontinental Heavyweight Championship.

McCall was the heavyweight champion of the world in 1994 after defeating Lennox Lewis. In the 1997 rematch, McCall had one of the most epic in-ring meltdowns in boxing history. In two of the rounds McCall literally refused to fight. He actually CRIED in the ring. A confused Lewis (refusing to fight a defenseless, crying man) staggered to a decision. McCall was discovered to be suffering from a variety of drug and mental health issues.

Besides the Lewis crying debacle, McCall is famous for having a nervous breakdown and attacking a Christmas tree in a Nashville hotel. McCall has also been to drug rehab “numerous” times, been tasered by police and once spit on a cop.

PACQUIAO POUNDS MARGARITO

MANNY PACQUIAO BLOODIES ANTONIO MARGARITO

Sports Illustrated called it a “dominating performance.” Pound-for-pound boxing champion Manny Pacquiao picked up his record EIGHTH world championship with a unanimous decision over Antonio Margarito Saturday night at Cowboys Stadium in Dallas.

Margarito was lucky to even get the match after disgracefully cheating in a match against Shane Mosley in January of 2009. Pacquiao’s camp even accused Margarito of cheating before this fight after apparently finding a banned supplement in his dressing room.

However, even though he was smaller and lighter, Pacquiao pummeled and battered Margarito. Pac-Man won round after round and turned Margarito’s face into a bloody mess.

The results for UFC 118 were just as we had predicted. Boxer James Toney exited The Octagon as a disgraced fat man.

Frankie Edgar defeated BJ Penn yet again to solidify his UFC lightweight title. Other winners on the UFC 118 card included Nate Diaz and Greg Maynard who beat Kenny Florian.
