Like I said...leave it to Haymon...anything can happen. We never know! As much as I dont want to believe it, this could be one of those "WTF" fights that get sinked in '12...there's at least one or two fights a year like this.


i'd like to see williams win a few before he gets back in with martinez.

i'm not trying to get involved...but i think it's "an english teacher" (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)


Honestly from what I have been taught it can be either or. It is a tricky thing the use of "a" or "an". Either sounds correct. Some teachers or professors prefer a and other an... it all depends.

IN GENERAL,

AN is used as A would for words that begin with a VOWEL.

A bug
An ant
A zebra
An inch

There is variation, though. For instance: An hour. A horse.

A good rule of thumb is saying whatever thought you are trying to convey in writing OUT LOUD to yourself and listening to what sounds naturally better.

Final word: who fuckin' cares. this shit is trivial when speaking in colloquialisms to each-other on a message board. Maybe in the future when the internet is even more of a primary means of communication things will change.

UNTIL THEN...ain't matter STFU. lol jk

HAHAHAHAHAHAH Allmenjoi owned again lol.

BTW, it's not a teacher's preference, it's something you learn around 2nd grade. Maybe you didn't make it that far eh?

don't get it confused, i'm not throwing anybody under the bus. there is a great deal of ambiguity with all writing...I think allmenjoi is alright. in fact, i agree with her that gettin attacked for grammar in forum posts is gabbage but thats just me.

hahahhaha, I'm not the one claiming to be an English major fucktard. I openly admit I don't write that great, which is why I chose to be an accounting major. I proofread all my important emails and work assignments though.

Since you love to critique my writing, it's AN ENGLISH techer. Oh, and you capitalize the word after a period fucktard. You don't know shit about this sport, and it's pretty obvious in reading most of your posts. You ever been in a boxing gym? Nah, from what I've heard it sounds like the gym isn't one of your places to go if ya know what I mean.


I am going to end this: calling me names does not make you right or prove your point. I know everyone wants to make a name for themselves on this board which is great. But really your argument is oblivious. So let's get back to boxing. And you spelled teacher wrong.


Al Haymon is promoting boxing in a new way. He is letting the boxer actually make money before the promoter. This should be the case, in the past where boxers were openly taken advantage of this is a healthy start. The more money the boxers can make the more attractive the sport becomes.

An English teacher from UCLA has disputed claims that Shakespeare wrote all his plays and sonnets.

Your first example is either or, your second example speaks for itself. Again it is a preference. I have been on both sides of the boat. You keep arguing.

Because English is spoken differently in neighborhoods, states, and cities I would have to say a mixture of Southern California slang and Eastern Alabama lingo.
