Oy Vay are you going to hear it today…So Saturday night as the Yenta Club headed up by my darling wife Sadie played Gin in my living room, I watched the Sergey Kovalev – Andre Ward PPV with a longtime associate of my dear pal the late Myer Lansky. I will leave his name out of my column, but I will tell you this, he knows boxing and was involved with the sport back in the 50’s. Enough SAID! When the decision was announced, he turned to me and said “Packy, Sergey Kovalev was screwed without grease!” I couldn’t agree more!
Sergey Kovalev… All I have to say, is give this warrior a rematch immediately and let’s settle this once and for all! I respect the hell out of Andre Ward and give him credit for having a big set of bagels for coming off the canvas to fight back, but he won that fight and Donald Trump’s hair is not comb over!
Luis Ortiz – Malik Scott… I know a fix when I see one and that was fixed for sure! For all of those who don’t think so, I have some nice riverfront property in Jersey I can sell you cheap. Don’t worry that it’s built on quicksand and around a swamp!
My Pal Al (“Bad” Brad’s Father)… Many fights were viewed in Al’s day and mine together at the Closed-Circuit locations both in NYC and Miami Beach. He would have loved the Kovalev – Ward fight and trust whomever he thought won, nobody would be more vocal!
The Chutzpah Award… The Chutzpah Award goes to Vinny “Glory Days” Lucci. This cat has huge bagels and calls it like he sees it. He has one of the highest Boxing IQ’s I have seen in a long time as evidenced in his columns on Ringside Report. Keep doing your thing Vinny and break bagels when you have to with the truth even if folks can’t take it!Contact the Feature Writers
