July is here, and that is reason enough for WBA to crown their boxer of the month: Gervonta Davis. It turns out, that he starts every fight with the sign of the cross. That is a Christian symbol which references Christ’s suffering. That makes an interesting choice in boxing because this ritual expresses an acceptance of pain.
Alex Ramos is ill
Since forming the Retired Boxers Foundation in 1995, proudly serving as the non-profit organization’s president since day one, Alex Ramos has devoted his life to helping his fellow retired boxers in need. Hundreds of phone calls each year come into the home of former USBA middleweight champion Alex Ramos. Most are from current or retired boxers that have fallen on hard times.
Many of these calls from Alex’s boxing brothers can’t or won’t even be followed up with a “thank-you” call after receiving that much desired help, yet one thing is for sure…all these calls will be answered.
Now Alex Ramos has fallen ill, and needs our prayers.

American Gladitors reinvented for Epiphany
NBC is reinventing the classic competition series American Gladiators and is currently filming a brand new series with new Contenders and a new team of Gladiators for their upcoming premiere season. Hulk Hogan and Laila Ali (Muhammad Ali’s daughter) will be the brand new hosts for the series which airs 6th January 2008 on NBC.
That day is Epiphany (Greek: επιφάνεια, “appearance” or “manifestation”) – a Christian feast intended to celebrate the “shining forth” or revelation of God to mankind in human form, in the person of Jesus. Some Christians commemorate the visitation of the Magi to the child Jesus on this day, while others use the day to commemorate the baptism of Jesus as an adult.
There is a myspace profile around that list the following hero:
“THE MAN THAT I THANK FOR EVERTHING HES DONE
IN MY LIFE! GRACIAS DIOSITO! SIN TI NO PODIA SER NADA!”
