    I have even more respect for Inoue. Good for him.

    “After duking it out with an amazing warrior in Nonito Donaire on Thursday, Inoue took the Ali Trophy via unanimous decision. In the aftermath, Inoue was offered the WBA strap Donaire previously held, which he grabbed with both hands. Seconds later, Kalle Sauerland attempted to give the ‘Monster’ the WBC’s Diamond strap, which was also on the line. Inoue immediately rejected the offer. Instead, Inoue grasped the Ring Magazine championship and his own IBF version before posing for photographs with his new trophy. It does seem to be a slap in the face for the World Boxing Council. The snub follows criticism levelled at the organization over their Franchise status.”

    Somebody needs to slap WBC right in the face. And Inoue stood up and did it gracefully. Can't ask any better.

    Inoue is one amazing little lesbian. He never stops surprising/impressing.


    Full credit to CST for the lesbian comparison. He referred to Inoue as "one tough little lesbian" a few months back. I still laugh at the remark.
