The controversy to which I was invited to take part lasted greater than two hours and was not a debate. He solely recycled that everlasting tub of intolerance, aggression, deaf ears to the fundamentals, crude lies and a merciless insensitivity about boxing as a sport, which prospers each time the topic is Canelo, in opposition to whom he thinks in another way.
There have been no earlier guidelines, however I was anticipated with a meticulous choice of sayings or subjects touched on in my movies, in main questions, taken out of context and that clearly sought to discredit my work and my skilled picture. The information is that I knew beforehand that I was going to come across this poisonous panorama. And it’s clear that the query of any fan will likely be, why did I settle for?
In skilled journalism, the lacking knowledge shouldn’t be at all times reached straight. Many occasions, sadly, “to choose potatoes in Florida, you must plant them in Nevada.” The controversy left nothing, however the interview with the Las Vegas promoter, Hector Fernández de Córdoba (Ferco) did depart rather a lot.
It left a lot that it allowed me to shut the cycle of testimonials for the Kilos Mortales investigation sequence, with the proof that this seek for the purpose wanted for the weight of boxers and dehydration to be the purpose for thus many tragedies in boxing. Ferco introduced the position of promoters to public dialogue, as a result of in that ‘debate’ he made basic disclosures that contain all promoters.
This video is a doc that gathers that helpful perspective, which isn’t nice, it’s true, and which exhibits that at present’s boxing places enterprise pursuits earlier than well being not directly over the lives of athletes. However, it’s a actual, official testimony and from at present, each time somebody asks, “What trumpet do promoters play in the chaos of skilled boxing?”, It will likely be sufficient to evaluation this video and see what Ferco says and affirms.
Ferco’s voice is heard right here with authority, in command of every part that occurs at the desks the place fights are agreed and the future of boxers is determined. His testimony is what counts and it’ll proceed to take action, till different promoters dare to level the finger at him and publicly deny him. Till then, we already know that on this’ enterprise, the cash will likely be first, the present later and if attainable, then it is going to be the flip of the boxers.
Really, this isn’t excellent news. Nevertheless it was value enduring two and a half hours of an disagreeable debate, or a dialogue of the deaf, which didn’t add something to the clever dialogue, if in the finish it served to point out these confessions.
