Simon - You are a twenty something year old man with a family…a contract killer by trade who puts on the kibosh when called to do so….You get a big job to kill Mr Evil.    The conditions are you work with another trigger man, we will call him ….”Smiley.” This contract is the kind of money that can set you up….as you look at that family of yours you silently determine that Mr Evil is going... http://ow.ly/2ExsOU

Zab Judah: Gatekeeper and the Fight for Brooklyn Cred - By D Simon - Boxing is nothing without traditions. Two guys fighting each other in a yard, even when one of the guys is Kimbo Slice, a decent sort and a gentleman….amounts to little more than violence with a few provisions.

It is a place where a man like Floyd Mayweather Junior who could not sell a drink ... http://ow.ly/2CSYrH

Ronda Rousey vs Miesha Tate 2 - A Fight for the Ages - By D.Simon - Dana White has been called many things. It amuses this writer that people want to group him in with the likes of Bob Arum when in fact White has already shown the capacity to change his mind, admit error and benefit from changing horses midstream……something one can hardly attribute to Arum, a man who would allegedly rather publicly exploit the loyalty of his star fighter Manny Pacquiao, than... http://ow.ly/2CyRL9
