(8 customer reviews)

£0.99

JD Morgan was a boxing-obsessed teenager who remembers watching this extraordinary event and offers a unique descriptive insight into Round Seven as he witnessed it unfold.

Re-live two of the most extraordinary rounds in boxing history when ‘Sugar’ Ray Leonard made Roberto ‘Hands of Stone’ Duran quit without throwing a single significant punch! What was it that made Duran, then pound-for-pound the toughest fighter on the planet, turn his back on an opponent he had defeated just five months’ earlier in Montreal? (2,500 words)

Description

Sugar’ Ray Leonard v Roberto ‘Hands of Stone’ Durán II

‘During a one-hour gym session last year, when I was being physically ‘tortured’ by a youthful and exuberant trainer, I remember calling out to him, ‘No más!’, ‘No más!’, after he had ordered me to plunge my head  down yet again on top of an already sweaty floor mat and give him another forty press-ups! And, as I said it – having convinced my body to obey his command – I realised immediately that his lack of a visual response to my pleas for mercy had revealed that I was referring to a sporting event about which he had no prior knowledge – as I knew him well enough to realise that he understood the Spanish for ‘No more!’ Therefore, for anyone who cannot recall the ‘No mas!’ event, or does not know its significance in the annals of boxing history, I am going to attempt to relay its monumental importance in the space of a few short pages.’ (Full story available for 99p using PayPal)

    Catch another glimpse into the life of J D Morgan. His use of colourful analogies and skilful use of alliteration sparked my interest from the start and brought life to this tale of boxing history. This will appeal to all readers, not just those with boxing knowledge.

    Wonderful blog! I found it while searching on Yahoo News.
    Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News?
    I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there!
    Appreciate it…

      Thank you! Best of luck with all you seek to achieve! I only really know about Google, so cannot help there, I’m afraid. Why not ‘Ask Jeeves’, or go on YouTube on a ‘How To…’ help website…?

    Hi there! I know this is sort of off-topic however I had to ask.
    Does managing a well-established website like yours require a
    massive amount work? I am brand new to writing a blog but I
    do write in my journal everyday. I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my personal experience and views online.

    Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips for brand
    new aspiring bloggers. Thank you!
