Tim Sylvia and the Willy-Nilly Freak Present

The armpit of The us? Whatsoever…we have listened to it all. Granted, the air all around our big airport is rather malodorous alright, it reeks, I’ll give you that. You can make pleasurable of New Jersey all you want, but at minimum our Athletic Command Board refused to sanction the proposed boxing match involving previous UFC heavyweight champion, Tim “The Maine-iac” Sylvia, and boxing’s personal “Cruel” Ray Mercer. Yes, you read me right, Ray Mercer! Regretably, you know what they say, “The display have to go on.” Genuinely? Does it have to?

Sylvia and Mercer will combat in the most important celebration of Adrenaline III, a further try by the developmentally disabled to merge MMA and boxing. The bout (if you can simply call it that) will now just take put on June 13, at the BJCC arena in Birmingham, Alabama. The “fight” represents Tim Sylvia’s “qualified” boxing debut. I will not know about you but, proper about now, I sense a minimal nauseous. In fact, I just dry-heaved. I officially have, what are known as, the “douche-chills” for Tim Sylvia. What the hell is this person wondering? I’m not declaring that a reputable endeavor at transitioning from a person skilled sport to one more is a bad issue. Even so, that is not what is going on below.

This, my close friends, is a goddamn circus sideshow! They may as well have “The Bearded Lady” vs . “Lizard Boy” on the undercard! Sure, Tim Sylvia has reached a great deal in MMA, no one particular is denying that. On the other hand, his greatest days are at the rear of him. Let’s deal with it, he is 33 several years old, and he dropped three of his final 4 MMA fights. I concur that it is time for him to locate a little something else to do with his time. But Boxing? You convey to me the final time a gawky, awkward, acromegalic fighter, who started his boxing occupation at the age of 33, produced a prosperous go of it. Go in advance, exploration it, I’ll hold out.

I suppose that is the cause he is facing a 47 yr-outdated Ray Mercer. Not to just take just about anything absent from Ray Mercer. After all, he did win an Olympic gold medal. He is also the former WBO heavyweight winner, and we all don’t forget that fateful working day in 1991 when he sent, what is arguably, the most devastating knockout in heavyweight boxing heritage. Properly, I know Tommy Morrison remembers. Arrive to believe of it, he might not keep in mind it critical head trauma has been recognized to cause memory reduction. Nonetheless, Ray Mercer’s most effective times are guiding him as well. Hell, they have been driving him 15 a long time back!!

Over the past 4 or 5 years, with the help of Dana White and many others, MMA has manufactured substantial strides in its ongoing endeavor to lose its facet exhibit picture. The past matter the sport requirements is this unholy union with boxing. I fully grasp instances are tough, and I get that Tim Sylvia would like to preserve functioning, especially in these dim economic occasions. Is there nothing at all else he can do? Does he have to provide his soul so quickly? Shit, even Gary Coleman held out for a even though in advance of getting to be mall protection guard!! Oh properly I suppose there is nothing at all we can do about it young children…the freak show is coming to town, irrespective of whether we like it or not.
