Default Re: Help Out Diego's Wife And Kids By Buying One Of These Shirts..

I am a boxing fan, but Ii agree that raising money for the wife of a dead boxer seems lets say strange. I do not know her or anything about her. Even if I believe that she has been left very little by Chico she is in a far better position than most of the worlds poor simply by being in America.

It is not having a go at her etc, but if I had a spare $30 to give to a charity it would be one that either benefits the mass majority of people, ie Cancer research or one that aims to change the lives of a few truly desperate individuals such as operations in places like Cambodia that try to stop the use of child prostitutes in the worst slums etc.

A well intended thread going nowhere.That Diego did not prepare for the future for his family is unfortunate,but he is certainly not alone in this miss step.
A corporate assistance program by the casino's and promoters is the only viable plan to correct this issue.

Some of you guys are going deep and unnecessarily so.

It's a good looking t shirt. I might get one. Only 15quid, cheaper then a Nike t shirt and the money goes to a better cause than some big company.

Fact is, what Diego did with his money etc is of no matter. He was a great representative for the sport.

"Only viable plan"? I don't mean to come across as callous, but the boxers don't work for the casinos, so I don't know why they would be responsible for a boxer's money woes. How about a little personal responsibility? Look at Bernard Hopkins. He got ripped off by a promoter early in his career and struggled for a long time with purses below what the should have been getting as the IBF champ. But even before the Trinidad fight Hopkins was at least comfortable financially, based in a large part on living within his means. Boxers like Chico get taken sometimes, but plenty of other boxers are able to handle their business.

Whether you make millions in the ring or 300 bucks a week at Wal Mart, it's up to you to take care of your money.

What are you talking about...the thread says...HELP DIEGO's WIFE AND KIDS, so the thread does pertain to what he did with his money...especially when it's asking for us to buy them.

it says help them because he is DEAD. thus you don't talk about the cons of what is going on. you have some RESPECT.

if your dad dies and he was a selfish cunt, i dont say 'he was a selfish cunt'. i have some respect EVEN IF I AM RIGHT!

I can't find the sort of Ts that I like. I wish I could. Generally what I see is a little whack.

One website had some sick shit, me and my mate spent over $300 but were then told about shipping taxes or some bollocks and left it or we would have been charged about $600 or something stupid.
