News Crawford Grimsley, the flamboyantly named but workman heavyweight, has been forced to pull out of his clash with former champion Michael Moorer was met with sobs from the three ticket holders eager to see the monumental encounter. They were all soon placated when Sedrick Fields was named as the replacement to ensure the mediocrity and flab promised would be delivered. I’ve decided I’m no good at satire, I know you’d reached that conclusion weeks ago.
Setting Grimsley, who once ‘famously’ – my that word is used easily these days – took a vintage George Foreman twelve rounds, apart is the reason for his withdrawal. Diverticulitis. Now this requires surgery apparentley. Not one to leave the reader short-changed, I did some lengthy investigation into what the condition actually means.
“Diverticulitis occurs when small pouches bulge out from weak points in the intestines, forming ‘diverticula’, which then become infected or inflamed. It is sometime described as being similar to a balloon of air bulging out of a bicycle tire.”
Which seems mildly symbolic of the paunch surrounding the heavyweight contender list these days, but further enquiry suggested it was caused by poor diet. I think this could run rife through that same contender list. I can think of 25 heavyweights who should see a doctor immediatley.
