01:35 * As the two fighters back away a step, you can see blood on the chest and shoulder of Hamed but it's not his.

01:39 * Referee Cole is stopping this fight. He's calling for the ring doctor. The ring doctor is taking a close look at Abe Attell... Attell's corner is pleading its case.* No! Cole waves it off. The fight is over! The doctor is not going to let it continue. The winner by TKO is Naseem Hamed! 4:4

Hey Curb yer enthusiasm...........we are still picking up the pieces after the commishes office was gutted by a ransom ware attack......probably the ruskies! Or it could have been an insurance scam, the cause remains unclear..... the suspicions and disappointment are running rampant.

This is not a time to celebrate a selfish victory, it's a time of great concern, sadness and reflection.

Although......this season shall pass ......and a welterweight/LHW season devoid of such atrocities could be in our future.


But that's an optimist for ya.....always annoying those of us grieving in the dark, by aiming a laser light right into someone's eyeball.
