Re: Sean O' Grady Discussion
Not sure what 'Papa' O'Grady's goal was, to send a 17 year-old teenager, with a
'padded record' over third-rate Bantaweights in Oklahoma City to 'The Forum'.
Sean, had never fought outside of Oklahoma, and had never been in the ring with
a capable fighter before, not even one ranked in the Top 40.
It had to be 'money'.
Later, 'Papa' O'Grady said that he wanted to 'test' Sean, to see how he would react
when facing a 'World Class Fighter'. He actually said, that he didn't excpect his son to
win, but that he only wanted to see how he would react to getting 'hit hard'.
Papa O'Grady, 'I figured Sean could get past the 5th Round, and maybe take Lopez
to the 6th or 7th Round. I never expected Sean to win, but I'm proud of his effort.'
