He's necks right tyson. Fury for schwartz deontay wilder still fighting luis ortiz necks so tyson fury doesn't have the ability to fight deontay wilder so for you to lie and say that oh that's why our energy was different because he could afford no. He can't wilder announced his next fight knock fury so now that wilders busy furious fighting who's available totally the same scenario for crawford county.

I mean, this, which seen this model for year? Yeah, I it works. We buy it. We keep buying these things. So not buying another Mayweather Pacquiao I am not buying that. Never. That's going to be a disaster. That is just an awful idea, but people will buy it. They will the thing and it'll be a hundred bucks watch and it'll be some dope like me. That will have a bunch of neighbors over. I'll go. Well, only one of us this. Eighty five bucks eighty five. It was worth. It was worth it. It was a very entertaining fight was there was no downtime. In that fight there they were fighting yet. Bryan was at that fight. He was did. It was the ending was dramatic because. Nobody had it scored the same way. Right? Lampley and Kellerman and Roy Jones. They were all I don't know away max seem to favor Cannella because he felt he wanted the story of the fight. That was his this thing. Yeah, the story of the fund and then Roy Jones seem to favor canal a little bit, but wasn't surprised by triple g I saw on the LA Lampley was all over triple. Yeah, he was. I saw the times reported that, I guess out of like fourteen or fifteen reporters there that the majority of them had them had as draw again real. And then there were a couple of people favorite Cannella and then more people than in favor of triple j as opposed to Cannella. But the majority were dry. I think I think what it came down to if you were going to count the most landed punches that would be triple g the aggressor and probably the most power punches was canal. So the interesting part of all of this guys is that eights Sosa objective each judge in professional boxing. Is looking at it through their own personal prison and judges those fights. Also at the same table, they're in different different angry. Yeah, that plays a part in it too. And I on like in amateur, boxing, where you gotta score with the white of the gloves. I mean that that is a little more that's a little easier I think to judge per se. But when you're talking about professional boxing, the different angles and just everyone kind of Ewing differently, some people rewards the aggressor. Some people want the guy who punches more so and there's no, there's no set standard will lay right. You know, it's like you're right. It's it's sorta like I of the behold, right for sure. Really, no doubt. I waited until George human bring this up because I know you you've covered to Wayne Wade. He announced he's coming back for one more year. Thinking about some second greatest shooting guard ever behind Koby, maybe, well, Jordan, third behind Jordan, Jordan, I kind of put has put Jerry West. Is he a point guard or shooting guard if he's shooting. Guard? Dwayne, his fourth, that's a good question me. He's way too far. Jerry always. You're wearing your Lakers shirt today. I know it's so far back. You can't think that is as our blur fairly grasp. George. Like if Jordan played today, we would call him a wing, right? Yes, rather than a shooting guard and some people on Twitter would call him overrated Jordan. Yeah. So I think Koby clearly a shooting guard weighed clearly shooting, or where do you Jerry West? That's the question him and Gail gooders kind of split the point guard duties, like Ron Harper. Jordan did. Yeah. So I guess that decides he weighed never got a max max contra took less money, a ton of times to kind of build up the team. He did it with LeBron and then subsequently after five times by Mike count, he took less money. Wow. In his career, you see now he's at the end of his career.

She treated victims of gun and knife violence every day and would come home from the hospital. You know, after having experienced real violence and it'd be met with these images of more violence at home dolls, husband was an avid boxing fan. She began watching televised matches with him in June of two thousand. They watched the welterweight title fight between defending champion Oscar de LA Hoya, and Shane Mosely on pay per view. The was fascinated by Moseley and he was so quiet and reserved and almost gracious in a prefight interview Moseley asked a rhetorical question. Why be afraid of what you want that. Resonated with doll very much so because I don't think I really thought about the world in those terms. I wasn't thinking about what I wanted. I was just thinking about what I was obligated to do. That's from a first generation immigrant mentality, but also as a physician, it was all about responsibility. Doll was an easy target in the highly competitive and mostly male world of surgical residency. Her upbringing in a Syrian family, trying and often failing to assimilate in North Dakota, imbued her with a go along to get along approach to life. She was ill prepared for the power struggles between residents. Is incredible. Moseley upset till a Hoya for the title and boxing captured. Linda dolls, imagination. She began thinking about what she really wanted a happy marriage, respect, professional accomplishment, a better paying job by two thousand four. She was divorced and working in a well established private practice on the upper east side. One day she asked patient about his line of work. She did that at the beginning of every exam in he mentioned that he used to work for HBO sports, and for some reason, it just clicked in my head and immediately just blurted out. I want to be a fight doctor to achieve responded. Why when I do this and he said, all right, I'm gonna make some phone calls because they love the idea of a woman doing this. They were the New York State Athletic Commission dollar mmediately submitted her paperwork, and then nine months later, I got a phone call with an assignment. Gol would work her first matches a fight doctor at a charity event. On October fourteenth, two thousand four. I was ringside and it was incredible. I was terrified. The surprising part of it was that I felt so excited by the hitting and the sound of the hitting and the look in their eyes and how they transformed into these different people when they're in the ring. I had never even seen a life fight. I knew nothing about the rules. I didn't even know what doctors did. She leaned over to one of the other fight doctors and asked for help. It kept saying their book is training manual and he said, no, you just kinda show up and the guys will teach you. It's all on the job training over the following months. Dog got to know many of the boxers she protected in the ring. I loved that. They reminded me a lot of the boys and young men that I met in the Bronx that awaited channel, whatever difficult circumstances they grew up in in the ring, and they all came from really awful circumstances. There was just so much compassion for each other. They were so open to connecting with. I think a lot of Sammy is a maternal figure, but the fighters were sometimes squeamish about being examined by female doctor, like the time when doll work the Curtis Stevens Marcus Premiera fight in July two thousand six. Curtis dealt Marcus low blow. Again. That was by accident, and it created this traumatic hernia and Marcus was crawling across the ring, screaming in agony, and it really reminded me of cancer patients and the kind of screaming that would here in the hospital when people were going through treatment or or dying. It was horrifying. The only way of his could be checked with the doctorate. His corner who happened to be me, checked him at the ring, but because woman he didn't want me to Marcus Premiera was given a five minute break by the referee.
