  Canelo Crumbles Rocky In 3  
By William Trillo
With 20,112 seats filled in the historical Madison Square Garden arena, Canelo Alvarez (50-1-2, 34 KO’s) came out and bludgeoned Rocky Fielding (27-1, 15 KO’s) for just over 8 minutes 30 seconds before the referee brought a grinding halt to the proceedings after Rocky hit the canvas for the fourth time.

Fielding proved to be no match for Canelo on any level. With no outside game to speak of the Liverpudlian had no choice but to fight in close quarters. That suited Canelo just fine. It wouldn’t take long for a hook to the body to start the knockdown parade. Canelo was just too much for Fielding to handle.

HBO “Old Yeller’s” WCB
By William Trillo

As defined by Urbandictionary.com : Old Yeller
To put something out of its misery. As in the ending of the Disney film Old Yeller, where the young boy puts a bullet between the eyes of his beloved pooch who's gone rabid or old or something.

On a cold and dreary evening in Carson, California HBO unmercifully brought a grinding halt to its World Championship Boxing series. The venue was as empty as I have ever seen it, and the few fans that were in attendance groaned, cat called and booed throughout the entire show. Whoever the dude was that was doing the Donkey in distress impersonation should be commended for his efforts. He alone kept the crowd entertained.
