There are some who do not believe in coincidence, but try this! While composing yesterday's Post, which strongly featured the beautifully interesting city of Omaha, Nebraska, I was eagerly awaiting the World Boxing Organisation Lightweight Title bout between
US contender TERENCE CRAWFORD (left) and
World Champion Scot RICKY BURNS
While no aficionado, it was easy to see that Burns was making heavy weather of his defence even during the early rounds, and went on to lose on a unanimous decision to a far better fighter on the night. The surprise (and coincidence) came when it was revealed that Crawford not only hails from Omaha, but was born, bred, brought up and still lives in that city. He is the only man with that credential to win a World Boxing Title - a CREDIT to his hometown! Congratulations go to Terence while Ricky deserves similar as a Sporting and Magnanimous loser.
