Post Comments Thread For: Jermain Taylor Returns To Boxing, Lou DiBella By His Side

By Thomas Gerbasi - It was probably the one conversation Lou DiBella didnít think he would ever be having, at least not about Jermain Taylor. But it was going to be a necessary chat where the answer would determine where the relationship between promoter and fighter stood.

ďHereís what I want to know,Ē said DiBella to one of the specialists that had checked out Taylor, a former middleweight champion attempting a comeback after two years off from a sport that had seen him lose four of his last five bouts, three by knockout. ďIf this was your kid, would you let him fight?Ē

ďNo,Ē said the doctor. ďI wouldnít let my kid fight, period. But if youíre asking me if I would let this man fight vis a vis the level of risk versus any other athlete who gets in the ring and participates in a combat sport, I canít tell you that thereís any reason why this man canít fight and at any greater risk than anybody else.Ē

DiBella accepted the answer, like he accepted the others he received from the Mayo and Cleveland Clinics, as well as the Nevada State Athletic Commission, which voted 5-0 in favor of licensing Taylor in October.

Two years earlier, in December of 2009, DiBella resigned his post as his first world championís promoter, not wanting to see the Arkansas native risk his health in the ring after suffering a scary knockout at the hands of Arthur Abraham on October 17, 2009.

ďI walked away from a number of other fighters, and Iíve released fighters who I knew still had some economic value and wound up fighting for other promoters because I just felt in my gut that the time had come for them to call it a day,Ē DiBella told BoxingScene. ďItís not an easy decision, and ultimately, you gotta live with yourself. You gotta look in the mirror. This is often referred to as a hurt business, and itís an unforgiving business. And when itís unforgiving in the sense of a bad decision that costs a guy his economic career, thatís unfortunate and terrible; but when itís unforgiving in the sense of a guy thatís never the same mentally or emotionally or psychologically, or dies young like the Quarrys and leaves family behind, thatís tragic. If I could avoid a tragedy for a few bucks, it doesnít make me Mother Teresa to do that. It doesnít make me a great guy to do that; itís just the right thing to do.Ē [Click Here To Read More]

Default The Fat Man and the Arkansas kid

Ever since DiBella with his paunch stepped on the ring mat in the second round of the first Pavlik fight, when JT shoulda put Pavlik away, it's been all downhill for JT.

DiBella in his anticipatory reaction to being the first in the ring for the KO that never occurred, put the hex on JT....who would suffer for the next few years...

A fighter doesnt get KOed TWICE in the 12th...

Ultimately, it's al haymon's call...not DBE and it's enabler of a promoter.
