In this article, Cunningham reiterates a point I made some time ago when addressing another boxing robbery. A loss isn't just a number in the "L" column; it represents, among other things, a loss of future earnings for the affected athlete. "Robbery" isn't just slang.

I sincerely hope that the noise being raised over this latest controversy has a positive effect for the future of our sport. I encourage Steve to continue his public indignation. Corruption and incompetence are killing boxing, especially for the "little guy". The fans and the fighters have to care. Otherwise, no one else will.
