Yeah I thought he was legit, but I didn't have anything to go by. But based on what he says, there is nothing to like about Cintron.
Speaking of Kauffman, I noticed the other week he had a win. I saw a headline up on fighthype links, and it surprised me. I thought he was in jail for a long time because he fucked a 12 year old. What happened? Why isn't he in jail? I thought his career was over as he was going to be in jail, but looking at boxrec, he has had numerous fights in the last year or so. Were charges dropped or something? I remember Avon defending him, saying that he didn't know and she looked really mature for her age. I definitely remember Avon having something to do with Kauffman though, like an adviser or something of some sort.
Okay, I will try to break it down the best I can.
I do not know Condiitioner 101 personally, but I do not know why he would make up that stuff, so I believe it. And if it is all true, Cintron is a turd and maybe I should stop rooting for him
. He(conditioner) is the guy who punched a guy in the crowd or some shit after Kermit lost to Margarito the first time in Vegas. I never heard what happened after that, if you even heard about that?
Kauffman was originally going to get jail time because I think he was going to plead guilty with his first lawyer from Reading. He then got a new lawyer from Philly and plead not guilty and got off. I have no clue how he got off, because I to thought he was going away for a little. I remember reading the paper in our area when that went down, I just do not remember the exact specifics. He also was arrested for selling drugs too, I think that was before the rape charges. I am not trying to rip on him either, because we all make mistakes, I am just trying to give you some info. I really do not want to piss any one off(like in his camp or something) by saying this shit.
I have seen him fight a few times locally, and he has fought some major soft touches. The one guy looked like he took a dive. Honestly, I am not overly impressed with him yet, though his last fight on Showtime about a month ago he looked decent. He did get knocked down too(just a flash), the guy he fought was 285lbs of pure jello with some okay skills. Travis just came in to his fights chubby, but his last fight he looked in much better shape finally. I know he put on a lot of weight going through all his legal woes, it just seemed to me it took him too long to get the weight off. I here he spars with a lot of top heavyweights too, so I hope he stays out of trouble and dedicates himself and can make some noise in this weak division.
I used to see Avon all the time at fight cards , I never spoke to him though and mentioned to him I post on boxingtalk.com. I trained at a different gym, so I really did not know there fighters or there people.
