The Boxer's Prayer
Huffington Post - about 2 years
Many professional athletes pray before they compete, but boxers' prayers are special. Last Saturday night, Artur Szpilka was carried from the ring inside Brooklyn's Barclays Center on a stretcher after a brutal right from Heavyweight Champion Deontay Wilder rendered him unconscious. I watched the fight and when I saw the punch land, I thought Szpilka was dead. Szpilka recovered from the blow and wants to fight again, but Prichard Colon, a welterweight from Puerto Rico, currently lies comatose in a hospital bed as a result of his October 17th fight in Fairfax, Virginia. The Twitter handle #PrayForPrichard provides updates on the fighter's condition. Boxers put their lives on the line in every time the bell rings. The perils of his chosen profession are not lost on Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero. "This is a sport where anything can happen," the former world champion said. "One punch could change your whole life.

Mayweather even signed a contract using a 18-karat gold pen that’s also worth a cool $4,000. So how is it that he’s able to earn the nickname Money Mayweather? In a related report by the Inquisitr, WWE wrestler Brock Lesnar claims both Floyd Mayweather Jr and Manny Pacquiao could not beat him even if all three men were to tussle at the same time. While that particular fight is unlikely to ever happen, Las Vegas bets and odds have already been released for the upcoming Floyd Mayweather Vs. Manny Pacquiao fight. The contract was signed with a gold pen called the Peerless 125 by Cross. This particular pen only has 124 brothers out in the world. Cross says Mayweather is in good company with the likes of President Barack Obama and Oprah. According to Cross, using the Peerless 125 for the contract signing now makes the gold pen a “part of history,” and you have to bet it ...
