Unhappy Howard Eastman still fighting

Lost his 4th fight in a row on Friday to a novice in Guyana.

Only been stopped once out of the 4, the second to last fight was a MD.

Its not like he is getting beat badly so he should continue if he wants to.

Eastman is a solid veteran. I hope he is fighting for ego rather than money. The only real concern here is how good the Guyanese board's safety measures for the fighters are.

He lost his last fight to a welterweight.

Problem with Eastman was that his workrate was very poor, the guy looked half asleep sometimes in the ring.

I reckon it'll be for money Tbooze. He was never in love with training and was never that sharp with his cash either.

From what i remember he was far older than his official age he has got to be pushing 50.
