He isnt announcing, of coure. Hehe. That role was made immortal in the WWE by the great visionary Vince Mc Machon - who for much of the WWEs rise, the fan actually thought "Gorilla Moonsoon" called the shots and Mac Mahon was just a solid color commentatory and ring announcer.
Nothing like that, friend!
Like Jeff Bezos at Amazon, he chose that position because he wanted to see everything UPFRONT AND CLOSE AS THE BOSS!
The best way.
If you want something done right, do it YOURSELF. And some tasks just cannot be delegated, PERIOD!
Now, back to Trump - he's doing color commentary basically, and I've seen some interesting discussions about "who might win the bout".
I dont know - to me, if its a boxing match which it seems it is - - then thats Holyfield's "forte" I'd say ...
If its UFC, then it's Belfort's area of expertise.
And all else being equal, I'd say whoever's "area of expertise it is" - all else being equal - WINS!
If it was a pure street fight, all else being equal, I'd go with the uFC guy, but of course - and again, too many variables involved in a street fight, but note I said IF ALL else is equal!
Which of course, it rarely is
Then this bout - is it an exhibition match, or a real one, or a combo therein, or something like that?
I'd say perhaps the first. Hehe.
Of course, I'm not sure!
And there sure ain't no Rocky around here, both of these guys are solid and well estabilished in their own fields, but again, since it seems to be purely boxing, I'd say Holyfield.
And one look at the former champ's shoulders, Holy SHMOKES!
He looks to be in shape if nothing else! Hehe.
Much ik eMike Tyson and the rest - but so does the light heavyweight former UFC champ.
Should be interesting no matter what happens!
I for one look forward to hearing what the ole Trumpinator says, hehe.
I dont know if he's got much actual knowledge of boxing, but hes got the VISCERAL part down pat!
And he'll likely emerge as a winner in that regard to his die hard fans any way.
God knows he needs that luck.
Most ex Presidents have for years had it very "cosy" post retirement, extremely so!
Trump - not so much!
The precise opposite.
Not only have most of his source of funding dried up - but his hotel and real estate businesses are struggling - and tons of loans are coming due.
He personally likely wont be indicted or anything as a lot of reports say - I mean, think about - a former Pres?
THAT will probably keep him off the hook personally, though people might try ...
But being he hasn't done anything outright illegal (I know, I know, the assault on the Capital wasn't warranted, I'd rather personally have had that sort of thing done LEGALLY i.e. protest LEGALLY!!! - but then as people have said, "what do you do when the courts dont listen!" - but then Trump's legal defense was shitty and shoddy to be honest - even his biggest supporters know that - and it's an unGodly mess, but whether or not Trump "directly" did it ... well, that can be debated forever!) ... and being "not showing tax returns" really isn't something they'll ultimately put an ex Prez in jail for, at least thats my take on it - he should himself emerge relatively unscathed, unlike a few others at his companies...
But, financially, he's in the hole - big time.
(not to mention that he's the only Prez in a long - ex Prez - time that has not been offered a book deal by any major publisher - they're ALL staying away, despite offering Pence and the rest solid deals on everything)
(Hey, Trump may end up ... self publishing, if you can believe that!)
(I am not sure why the publishers dont want the cash cow that would be a book like that, but I think they've figured the potential hassles would outweigh the money on this one, and being the rest like Pence are all non controversial, well...)
Back to Donald though - he may be in the HOLE - NOW - but that doesn't mean hell stay there though ...
Trump's a doer, and will eventually, I predict return to the top, but he's got a battle on his hands!
Anyway, for now, thats my take on it.
And how this applies to YOU?
Well, as I said before ...
The exercises in the 0 Excuses Fitness System are what UFC guys - boxers - wrestlers - and martial artists of EVERY caliber follow, my friend. And even if you dont fall into one of them categories which most of you guys don't - they will benefit you more than anything else you've ever done, and keep you in the best shape of your life.
And if you want boxing specific, just for the heck of it - hey.
PS. - Remember to place your pre-orders in for Lumberjack Lodestone Fitness, time truly IS TICKING ont hat one.
PPPS - Last, but not least, the Trump VS Biden "boxing match" I alluded to Trump referring to before?
Biden's reputed to have once said that he'd "beat the hell out of Trump if in high school".
I'm not so sure he could do that. And, it's hardly high school either now, is it. Hehe.
Regardless, if ole Sleepy "Creepy" Joe could actually, you know, meander from one end of the ring to the other without either falling asleep - forgetting what he was there for in the first place - or throwing a hissy every time things didnt go his way (and really, ole Creepy has a VERY HARD time controlling his temper, as we all know! - which to me is yet another reason he's so NOT Fit to be Prez - not to mention he handled the REAL war in Afghanistan so terribly for one!)- he might just (not) have a chance. Hehe.
It's hilarious though, and I suspect as I said before, Trump knows this very well!
Anyway, if you're of the frame of mind that "Tramp and Biden" dont matter and you dont "need either", and/or if you're like Andrew Yang, whose reportedly forming a "third party" (what that party is and can be that hasn't already been tested, tried, dusted, dried, and thrown out the window is anyone's guess) ... then I got NEWS for YA.
Politics is the last thing I'm usually interested in, and only COVID and Trump forced me to sit up and take note.
All crooks of the highest order ultimately, or most.
Trump - well, thats his saving grace - and what I like the most about him - he's a businessman.
What you see is what you get!
And as for you, my friend, if you want to channel your inner beast and turn into your own version of Holyfield or who have you - well - HERE is the course that will do it - Animal kingdom Workouts!
Whoever said boxing was a “barbaric” sport and not cerebral is an idiot.
And my own family has plenty of them, unfortunately.
Boxing is probably one of THE MOST cerebral sports my friend, and even if you don’t know the B of boxing, you gotta be dumb if you think comments like the above (made by Muhammad Ali no less) don’t show a SUPER BRAIN behind said comment.
Or, a comment like Mike Tyson’s “you can have all the plans in the world, but they ain’t gonna help in the ring when you get punched in the MOUTH!”
Or, sheer BRUTALITY combined with intellect.
“ I want to punch his nose through his brain (or something like that!) “ (Tyson)
And back to floating like a butterfly and stinging like a bee, the best of both worlds is exactly what that is, and is precisely what you need to be a champion boxer.
As I wrote in the last email, brute strength is great, but you gotta match that up with THINKING.
If you give me two massive guys, one dumb and one smart, the dumber one being bigger, all other things being equal I’ll take the smart guy.
Take a look at Marc, for instance.
And when I sparred with him, he put his defense down, and invited me to “hit” him (touch him while sparring obviously).
And I tried my ass off.
You’d think it was easy with the guy’s hands down, but dude’s a big guy, but has lightning fast footwork.
THAT is what you call black mamba in the ring!
As he once told me.
Snake’s tongue, Rahul. Snake’s Tongue (when I was jabbing).
I think I could barely keep my jab up during round #3 of sparring.
And I got him - - sum total of ONE time, and that too when he probably let his guard down a bit (and it was never fully up!).
Or, when he once showed me a bare knuckle punch.
IT came out of nowehere, and hit me on the shoulders.
I FELT it. Believe me. It didn’t “hurt” me, but I’ve been hit far worse, and he didn’t do it to hurt me obviously.
But point is, it came out of nowhere, and though I was expecting it – POW!
He later told me that was 70% of his regular striking ability. Man, I can just imagine what he’s like at 100%, hehe.
And this sort of thing is precisely why I advocate bodyweight training, jumping ropes, squats etc as opposed to the mess at the gym.
These things keep you lean, mean, moving QUICK like a jungle cat. Or a fighting machine!
And they build your strength up to the point you can float like a butterfly all day, but when It comes time to strike?
Black mamba, or perhaps a BEE.
And that, my friend is the message I want to give you in this one. Take it or leave it - - up to YOU!
