Las Vegas, NV- If you were to categorize boxing agent/cornerman Sean Gibbons, with the exception of being a decent parent, it would probably not be anything of a positive nature. A one time Coke fiend, Gibbons was named by the Oklahoma Atty. General as a centerpiece in a broad investigation confirming that Oklahoma boxing was corrupt to the bone. Then the FBI has him on tape fixing a fight, in addition to the statement of Dwayne Swift, who told me that Gibbons took him to Mexico where he threw a fight. The bottom line is that Gibbons is a piece of…..shall we say work!
As a major cog in the Operation Matchbox sting that went down the tubes because of a couple of dirty cops, in addition to government interference, Gibbons is still in boxing and making a decent living at that. Personality aside, Sean is to boxing what “Pigpen” was to the Charlie Brown cartoon series. It is with a great sense of disgust that we induct Sean into the Ring Talk’s “Wall of Shame.”
