Will Teddy go Ape-Shit again? In the Williams-Molina fight, if Molina gets a homecourt decision? Do you think Williams will have to score a KO to win against Molina? It's in New Mexico, and I don't think that venue is gonna do justice to Williams should it go to the cards.

Is Teddy Atlas All That? Consider the Following:

1.) Even by his own admission, he won't give rounds with multiple knockdowns less than 10-8 scores. Yet goes on a rampage about bad scoring. If Atlas was as good as he thinks he is, he should know that conventional wisdom says you take a point off of the loser fighter with one knockdown a 10-8, the second, a 10-7, the third a 10-6. The losing fighter would really have to earn ground for rounds not to be scored in this way.

2.) He never pronounces Hoyfield's name correctly. It's like Holy is in religion. Know it all Teddy, pronounces it like the girl's name "Holly."

3.) He wants a national commission overseen by the federal government? Jeepers fuck! As if those clowns in Washington don't have enough problems and bullshit without trying to regulate boxing. This is so wrong. And what Atlas can't get through his skull is that boxing is an international sport, and cannot be regulated like other sports.

4.) Seriously what has he really done for boxing? I will give credit that he stands up for what he believes and is not a pom-pom shaker. His beliefs are genuine. But the sun won't rise and set for him controlling boxing like he wants. Teddy may be a firm believer, but he is also an arrogant, egotistical dictator, who lets his opinions loud his judgment. Why hold a shrine to this guy, because he once carried Tyson's spit bucket?
