And sometimes, it is not a fan or a participant, but some maniac who needs to "fly" into the middle of a world heavyweight championship on the Las Vegas Strip riding a fan powered contraption!
|Foreword by WBA Heavyweight Champ - Mike Weaever|
Losing by a wide margin of a 15 round world heavyweight championship against an undefeated champion, in the 15th and final round, he landed one of the most shocking knockout punches in boxing history to win the title, leaving the favored champion lying still, face down in the middle of the ring! That in itself is a boxing legend, but the way Weaver lost his title in his 3rd defense is one of the tales in the book, and that is just as shocking!
You will probably recall seeing some of these events as they unfolded in front of a world-wide audience tuned in for a championship boxing match gone wrong. A few of these you probably will hear about for the first time. And two of them happened at events in which I was present! Both of those were in Albuquerque, and it is no coincidence that they both involved Albuquerque's own - Rudy "Bad Boy" Lovato!
|Chapter 4: "My first boxing riot!"|
You don't have to be a pure boxing fan to appreciate the craziness of these happenings!
The book is now available in both Paperback and Kindle format on amazon!
