I've just been reading the thread about Travis "Tremendous" Simms and it got me thinking about one of the bravest fighters in the league - Bugsy "Long" Gawn.
"Long" has lost his last 8 bouts and has been somewhat ignored by my gym, but when I looked at his record I figured he just hasn't been given a chance.
Early in his career he took the legendary CyruS "Touch oF SleeP" ViruS to a majority decision. That was the closest fight TOS ever had. He also fought Travis "Tremendous" Simms 3 times and got a draw in 2 of the bouts. He never really had the opportunity to build a career for himself and basically became the fighter prospects beat on the way up. He's lost to Cyrus "Super" Virus twice, Maxy "Deep Freeze" Gawn twice, Prince Malik Abu-husson, Jean Pascal, Otto "The Fatty from Cincinatti" Blatty, Yusaf Mack, and Roy Jones Jnr but has never really had the opportunity to build up any of his stats because he always seems to be in against the best.
I have to pay tribute to him and I've decided I want to see him in with a handful of bums, just to give him a chance.
Big G...is there any chance Bugsy can have those bum fights? I know he's fighting Mr Untouchable next..but I'd like for him to face more opponents of that calibre...I think he's earned it.
