SUGAR RAY NEWS

Boxing – A Dying Sport In America

Who can forget the days when Muhammad Ali dominated the ring, Larry Holmes retained his championship, or Sugar Ray Leonard razzled and dazzled the crowd?  It seems like yesterday when Mike Tyson was knocking out everybody and nobody could beat him.

A Bad Week for the Commish

Unless you are an Amish hermit, you saw that Commissioner Goodell had a pretty lousy week last week. At his air clearing, “House cleaning” press conference, he looked like a man quite skilled at giving the answers he wanted to give regardless of the questions asked.
