NBC TV GETS “67 SECOND” REST PERIOD BETWEEN ROUNDS
FIGHTERS SUPPOSED TO BE OFF THE STOOL BY 60 SECONDS!
The fighters are supposed to be standing and ready to box, and the cornermen out of the ring by the toll of 60 seconds. The boxers are “supposed” to stand around for an additional seven-seconds before the bell rings starting the round off officially. Again, I don’t think it’s such a big deal, but why won’t the ABC do anything positive for the sport that is rampant in scandal and corruption? Tim Leuckenhoff, head of the ABC should be impeached, for if boxing were baseball, football or basketball, he would be answering questions from Congress in addition to being thrown out of office. But again, remember what Howard Cosell said, “You can’t clean dirt!”
