ecbttpronj7yth0dw9of

Well, that was some final day at Leopards Creek as the Alfred Dunhill Championship came to a wonderful crescendo, but who held their nerve to win.

Why Tyson/Jones Actually Matters

Why Tyson Jones Actually Matters

I’ve made no bones about this; I’m not going to watch this “exhibition” and I wouldn’t watch it if it were free. My small protest against a fight that I don’t think should take place, never mind have awarded the “Legends” belt, or whatever it’s being called, to the winner. (An aside here; if it is an “exhibition” as billed, how can there be a “winner” of this belt?) All of that having been said, I do understand the attraction …
