This is really something. Simply unheard of. Plain and simple.

Well, this must be part of a plan to parlay his career into something else down the road in the very near future.

It was a very brave and risky move in the macho man's man world of boxing.

Especially, in our Latino culture.

As an aside. I wonder if he was being threatened?. Hmmmm.

Why else would he do this?. I can't see an upside.

I have to read the inevitable autobiography.(I'm sure that there is already one in the works. If is publicist is worth his weight in gold. There will be one).

Good points!

No better way than to revive a career or push some product.
