Wild Card Boxing Club, Hollywood, CA: It Ain’t Easy

“When I was a young fellow I was knocked down plenty. I wanted to stay down, but I couldn’t. I had to collect the two dollars for winning or go hungry. I had to get up. I was one of those hungry fighters. You could have hit me on the chin with a sledgehammer for five dollars. When you haven’t eaten for two days you’ll understand.” – Jack Dempsey

“I hated every minute of training, but I said, “Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion.” – Muhammad Ali

Many people think I spend all my time in nightclubs, Gentleman’s Clubs, Restaurants, on Planes, getting Custom Suits Made and at Topless Beaches swooping fly girls during summertime.

I have to admit, there is some truth to that. Especially the swooping fly girls at Topless Beaches in summertime thing.

However, what many don’t know is that I usually take a month off from the difficult lifestyle of an International Playboy and get back to my roots. And when I say, “get back to my roots” I mean spending a month in Hollywood, in a small apartment, with no car, and go to The Wild Card Boxing Club, Hollywood, CA every day, all day.

I literally live on Vine Street. Minus a few trips to Beverly Hills to work on a little “project” I have going on. I did this in March and April this year.

I get real “street”. Every day I wake up go to the gym, chill for a while, then come back and workout or spar. I don’t wear Custom Suits until the weekend comes. And I swoop a little fly Mexicana girl I know from the hood some nights. Other nights I just stretch and read. Real soulful.

If you have never been to The Wild Card Boxing Club, the place is crazy. It’s small. It is about the size of four boxing rings (it has two boxing rings). There are about 100 people in there at any given time. The place has unbelievable characters. The intensity is off the charts. It is a straight up Madhouse.

But truth be told, I feel more at home in The Wild Card Boxing Club than almost anywhere in the world. I straight up love the place. It keeps me grounded. It keeps me humble. Freddie Roach might be the coolest cat in all of America. His MOM is a sweetheart. Pepper is funny as hell. All the regulars are cool as hell and are always helpful. All the pros are mad cool. Manny is The Man. The trainers are dope as hell. I love the energy and vibe. And even though I am basically at the bottom of the totem pole there (I am being humble as usual, I am really not at the bottom, more like a significant level below the Pros and real fighters), I do earn people’s Respect there, and that is really all that matters.

In fact, I think I will make at least a two week pilgrimage to The Wild Card Boxing Club for the rest of my life, no matter where on the globe my travels take me.

I probably won’t be going this summer to The Wild Card Boxing Club, but I do have plans to hit up another legendary boxing gym in another city. I typically do this when I travel.

Now that I think about this, this would be a great idea for a TV show: Have cameras follow me around the globe going to different Boxing Gyms. They could also follow me going to different tailors I know and get Custom Suits made. If it is a beachtown, I could bust some cutbacks and get shacked at some dope surf spots and swoop Topless girls at the Beach.

That would easily be the dopest show on TV. Maybe put it on HBO so we could show Topless girls. It’s kind of crazy that I just came up with this idea and no one else has.

I probably would want to wear a ski mask to keep me low profile.

I don’t want to jeopardize this whole “International Playboy thing” I got going on, after all.

Thoughts?

The Two Best Shows On Television Right Now

The Two Best Shows On Television Right Now

I haven’t had the time to watch a lot of Television lately, as I have been traveling a lot and swooping fly girls, but I did check a couple of shows recently that were dope.

They are:

1. On Freddie Roach

2. Luck

Both on HBO.

Interestingly enough, they are on two topics; Boxing and Horse Racing, that are G Manifesto favorites.

Looks like the world is coming back around to dopeness.

Side note:

I saw the first episode of Luck and it is beautifully shot. I love the horse races. Although I probably won’t check it too much as it’s an hour long, and I need to hustle right now.

Plus, I have spent my life at The Track. I have probably been the most prolific writer about The Racetrack since Damyon Runyon (check the archives).

Hell, they should have consulted me for the show, as I am sure my reality at The Track is doper than the fantasy of the show.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. VS Victor Ortiz: Final Thoughts

Floyd Mayweather Jr. VS Victor Ortiz: Final Thoughts

Since I have finally got over my back injury and started sparring again, I have been watching a lot of Boxing tape.

Last night, I had the pleasure of watching Floyd Mayweather Jr. VS Victor Ortiz again:

Now, I have already given my thoughts on the fight.

However, upon watching the fight a second time, it only strengthens my views.

1. Floyd was completely controlling the fight. He was doting up Ortiz with almost every punch. Ortiz was only going to last 3 more rounds tops.

2. Ortiz was butting Mayweather constantly in the fight. He did it in the first. He did it in the second. The third and at least three times in the fourth before the “final headbutt”. Floyd didn’t complain the entire time. Now that’s G.

3. The Referee gave at least two verbal warnings for head butts prior to the “final headbutt”. There might have been three warnings.

4. Floyd’s Knockout punch was completely legit and shouldn’t have even been questioned by anyone. Especially when you consider what happened previous. Payback is a b*tch. I think James Brown said that.

It is amazing and a travesty that Floyd was thought of as the villian in this fight.

There was only one fighter who did anything wrong, and his name was Victor Ortiz.

Just kind of shows you where the world is at these days; backwards.

But then again, you got guys in America where skinny jeans and shirts with glitter in modern society.

So maybe it shouldn’t be a shock.
