Could fifteenth, 2021
There’s a heavyweight “title” on the road tonight in case you consider the promoters in Germany as Mahmoud Charr returns from an extended layoff.
His opponent is Christopher Lovejoy. An getting older American with a 19-0, 19 KO file. Sounds good.
However look nearer at Lovejoy’s file, and also you’ll see all of his bouts came about in Mexico towards no opponent within the prime 200.
Additionally-rans, journeymen, and debutants don’t make it a world title-challenging file. Anybody with any information of the state of affairs is aware of there’s no strap at stake tonight.
Reporter Eric Armit takes up the state of affairs now as he delves deeper into the deceiving C.V. of Lovejoy that offers him the worst undefeated heavyweight file of all time.
A typical case of the road being blurred nicely previous any cheap level was the suggestion that Mahmoud Charr’s struggle with Christian Lovejoy could be for a model of the WBA heavyweight title.
That now appears to have light, however the truth that by way of Don King’s affect, Lovejoy stored popping out and in of the WBA scores in itself was disgraceful.
Lovejoy has a 19-0 file with all 19 wins by KO/TKO. Primarily based on that file, some followers may really feel that his score was not unacceptable.
However in getting Lovejoy rated, each King and the WBA went manner past what needs to be acceptable.
So to make the case of why Lovejoy shouldn’t be anyplace close to the highest rankings, there are particular details concerning Christopher Lovejoy’s “spectacular” file, which boxing followers ought to know.
Then, they’ll assess whether or not it’s unfair to the events concerned.
If you look at the data of the fighters, Lovejoy has overwhelmed a horror story unfolds. The names are merely irrelevant.
The data of his 19 victims are:
*By no means beforehand had a struggle
#Had by no means beforehand received a struggle
The whole wins/losses and attracts for his opponents are 51 wins, 192 losses, and 19 attracts. Twenty-six of these wins got here from two of his opponents, so the opposite 17 had solely 25 wins between them.
