    I've heard some strange (and disturbing) things about it.

    Damned shame too. He would've given Arguello hell. (You don't suppose his wife and tranny shared conjugal visits and reproduced, do you?)

    Thanks a lot. Now I'll have to go join a local monastery. (A Viagra OD wouldn't revive me now!)

    "I made Escalera suck my ****"- Tyrone Everett

    He probably wanted to do that too.

    One of the worst decisions of all-time.

    No it was not, it was a fix.

    Something like Chavez/Whitaker is a honest judge making a bad call, Everett/Escalera was an out and out fix, the judges were paid.

    Actually Everett is considered to be one of the most talented boxers to ever come out of Philly.
    He was a southpaw speed demon.I often wonder how an Everett-Whitaker bout would have played out if you could match them up prime for prime.Everett was that good.

    I told Carcaterra that I was interested in writing a story about a fighter I grew up with named Tyrone Everett, a lightweight, who had the ignominy of fighting for the junior lightweight title against a guy named Alfredo Escalera back in 1976 and losing by a decision, despite the fact that he clearly beat Escalera and despite the fact that Everett was fighting in his hometown of Philadelphia. But that wasn’t what made Everett interesting. Some months after the Escalera fight, Everett was murdered by his girlfriend when she found him in bed with his transvestite lover. (I used to work at the municipal courts in those days and had met the lover once when he was being arraigned for prostitution; in that line of work I think I met every prostitute, male and female, in the city.) What was even stranger was that the transvestite helped the girlfriend escape and tried to cover up the crime, then testified against her at the trial. (The prosecutor kept referring to the transvestite as “she,” he was so sexily dressed that perhaps he made a better woman than most women, at least in the minds of the men in the court.) The girlfriend got a 7-to-10 year stretch in prison. Carcaterra said he thought I had a story. I was glad a master of pulp thought I had something worth writing because Everett’s story is the only pulp story I know.

    Has this been proven? Or you going to give it the old "Tress was a friend of Daly who had interest in Escelara...blah blah". You'll find the same links with King and loads of judges.

    I think judges were, shall we say, influenced in both fights by the way.
