SUCKS for all sports. Can't believe Dana White is still trying to put on UFC 249. Khabib is stuck in Russia. Was really looking forward to March Madness and a few boxing fights. Wanted to see the Kirkland comeback. Plus, wanted to see the Postol/Ramirez fight. Hopefully, this pandemic dies down within the next month or so and we can get back to semi-normal sports entertainment again.

It's all been one big Shit Show and an inconvenience as far as everything's concerned. My heart and prayers go out to anybody that's lost someone during these times, it's truly sad. 

 

This whole pandemic is exposing our healthcare system and just how much more help we need in that department, not to mention high medical plans and hospitals not having enough space to house the ill. Smh

 

I can't believe what's going on right now, but here we are. 

 

We may as well scrap the boxing schedule til at least August or September, just to be sure and not give our hopes up. On the bright side, this pandemic has given others a sense of perspective, drive, and that final look in the mirror to say, "Hey, take care of yourself from this point on (e.g. saving money/investing, find an essential job or start a business, etc). It's also given people an idea of what they can go on without and some (including me) have realized I have sooooo many things in my house that does me no good (e.g. lots of clothes and shoes, etc). 

 

At the end of the day, I feel like things will get back to it's normal state and people will exercise more precaution....by choice or by force. I'm currently cleaning up my house, finishing up some projects and getting into 5th gear with that final level of self-sufficiency...owning my own business (plumbing, home renovations, housing development). 

 

I've been at my current job for 10 years (in June) and it feels great, but I'll admit...the past 3 years have been rough because I struggled to get my spark back and keep working as hard as I used to. Now, shit just makes me madder and madder, but it's more geared towards me dealing with the same type of people for so long. 

 

I see a lot of things changing around us and I'm sure a lot of it will stay this way as far as jobs and the new need in the workforce. If people aren't out here working to have their own and/or learn new skills, then I truly feel sorry for them. 

 

There's truly a silver lining in this shit we're going through...folks just have to find it and embrace it.

I was looking forward to Lopez and Lomachenko. The fight for 15, I just realized Lomachenko has only 14 fights and he considered pound for pound.
I was definitely looking forward to March Madness, especially on the women's side.
Opening Day for baseball! This is completely ridiculous. My sons have been home for almost a month, my ex fiancee been working like crazy, she is an ER physician and her schedule has been crazy. She has had 10 patients with Coronavirus. She won't see our sons out of fear she might be infected. My wife is shook because our daughter just turned and she is extra cautious. I haven't left my house in two weeks. Bless everyone out there still working with the public.
Ryan Garcia's mocking of Davis has been fun to watch, but Davis clips Garcia in 7.

Glad to hear everything's pretty stable on your end! Man, you've lived a long life from the strippers to the crazy club nights....now look at you....all responsible and shit! :lol:

 

Now that I look back...we've been around these forums for damn near 10 years talkin' shit about life and boxing! Lol

 

Blessings on your end as well, bro! I'm sure this situation will be under control within the next 2-4 weeks and truthfully, I like being in the house, lol. I can't do the whole panic nonsense that I'm seeing out here, but it isn't as bad as the media's portraying. 

 

Seriously, fuck the media! They're making it seem like the world's coming to an end with their reports. Moreover, I have classmates on social media posting fake news and fear mongering like never before. All this time, most of them average 2-3 likes on memes and post word salads all day, but they want everybody to believe their conspiracies. FOH!

 

Then you have people that'll go to work alllll day, then get on social and post stuff to make others afraid, but they're planning vacations for the fall. I can't just get with it, but that's how things are now. Lol

I stopped watching the news. Like half of America I been watching Tiger King and all things Netflix. I meant to say my daughter just turned 3, so it is definitely a change. My life has been interesting, 35 changes your prospective. I love being home, the best. Los Angeles looks like a ghost town compared to what it normally looks like. All the thugs were out last night on the anniversary of Nipsy Hustle's death. That was interesting. I rewatched Holyfield and Lewis, then I watched De la Hoya and Ike Quarty, I swear Oscar lost that fight, gift city.
