I bought us tickets to Leonardo and Gaspar’s championship fight on December 20.
Really? I’m so excited. Leonardo injured his right fist on his last bout with Elseman, right? This fight with Gaspar is going to be his first title defense since his recovery.

True. He’s one of my most favorite boxers of all time. Out of his 32 fights, 27 were knockouts and he only had two loses. Although, Gaspar is not one to be underestimated.
I know. I just think it’s a waste of time that he had to relinquish his super middleweight belts for this one fight. If I were him, I would do no such thing. What a big gamble! What if he loses? He’ll be back to square one.

He has made his name and is already regarded as one of the greatest boxers of our generation. So technically, he wouldn’t have to start from the beginning if he loses. Anyway, I’m rooting for Leonardo.
Want to bet? I’m for Gaspar.
