By William Trillo
I suppose the first lesson you should all take heed to is this one. When William Trillo places a bet on any fighter and you become aware of it, run don’t walk to the nearest casino and plunk all your money down on the other guy. The chances are very good your bet will be a surefire winner.
Okay, Okay. So I was hopeful Chris Arreola was going to crown Deontay Wilder and take his title. Yes, I know all the writing was on the wall and all signs pointed to Arreola being well past his prime. I was going with my heart and not my head and hoping Chris had enough left in the tank to pull off the upset. By the second round my head took over…Arreola had zero chance to defeat Wilder. That’s about the same chance he had when the fight was signed. The lesson, never bet with your heart, especially on broken down fighters. (This won’t squash the unfounded rumors about my supposed gambling addiction).
Another little lesson we learned this weekend, and all due respect to Brian Kenny, that PBC trio announcing from ringside which included Kenny, Virgil Hunter and Danny Garcia was abysmal. Poor Kenny had to try to hold together a team that consisted of Hunter who talks down to everyone as if he is the only one who knows anything, and Garcia who clearly doesn’t, (know anything). I couldn’t hit the mute button on my TV fast enough. As soon as I figure out this Facebook live app I am going to do commentary of the next decent PBC card from home, I will invite you all to join me. Now all we have to do is wait for a PBC card with intrigue….Don’t hold your breath.
Lesson # 4 Erickson Lubin is not good, not even close. Here is another guy PBC will attempt to shove down our collective throats. They brought in a “stiff” from Mexico to make Lubin look like a world beater but the hungry fighter from Mexico, Ivan Montero, made Lubin look pedestrian at best. Hence Lubin’s new nickname. From now on he will be known as Erickson “Lubejob” Lubin. Who does the match making for Haymon? Or are they just picking names out of a hat? How do I apply for that job?
Last but not least, if you want PBC related results of any kind do not log on to Pound4Pound.com. For the umpteenth fight in a row PBC’s putrid publicity staff sends out a few press releases during the week but does not send any weigh-in results or fight results. I don’t know if that’s across the board and no one gets results or they are punishing us because we call them on their crap. Whatever the case may be we are done with this “too good for most of the media” operation.
