Making A Case For Sports Therapy For Invisible Disabilities! In my life dealing with my own invisible disabilities. I fell nothing has helped me more then physical exercise and participation in sports. It has helped to improve my eye-hand coordination, and how to work with others. What kind of sports do I think are best for someone like myself? I really like team sports like football, basketball, soccer, water polo, baseball or volleyball for example. When it comes to individual sports. I think combat sports like boxing or MMA. Since when you train you to work with a partner. However, at the end of the day, the best sport is the one you or your kid will willingly participate in.

Anthony Joshua Andy Ruiz Rematch Announced, But Not Agreed On!
Back in June Andy Ruiz Jr. Shocked the world and upset Anthony Joshua to win the WBA, WBO & IBF Heavyweight Championships. His contract had a rematch clause that favored than champion Joshua.
It was announced by Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn and Matchroom Boxing that the rematch will take place on December 7th in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia. However, despite the rematch clause, Ruiz has not agreed to these terms. The question is who has the most leverage? Joshua has the contract that Ruiz agreed to, Ruiz has 3 of 4 Heavyweight Championships. Who has the most to lose? If Ruiz refuses the current terms?
I am of the opinion that one way or another Joshua is fighting on Dec 7th in Saudi Arabia.with at least one if not all three of the A Heavyweight Championships he lost to Ruiz in June on the line. If it’s not against Ruiz don’t be surprised if it’s against Oleksandr Usyk who is the #1 contender with the WBO and a Matchroom fighter.
If Ruiz holds his position. He is promoted through the PBC and as long as Deontay Wilder wins his rematches with Luis Ortiz & Tyson Fury. He should get a shot at WBC Champion Wilder.
Should The XFL have A Younger Entry Age Than The NFL? Vince McMahon is giving his XFL football league a second go this winter/spring. It’s likely that McMahon has grand plans for the XFL. It will likely be an uphill battle. For him to achieve those plans. The NFL is too established, and other attempts to compete including the first XFL season in 2001 have failed. There may be a way for the XFL to sustain its self. That is by offering contracts to 4 & 5-star talent before they are eligible to be drafted. This would be before their Junior or Red-Shirt Sophmore seasons are complete. I think most players will opt for college, but a few might choose to play a few seasons in the XFL untell they are NFL draft-eligible. This may be enough to sustain the XFL or any upstart league
People who face Invisible Disabilities like my self may be living shorter lives than those of you who don’t. I made two videos taking this issue on.
Regis Prograis Pulls Out Of World Boxing Super Series! Prograis the WBA 140 pound champion was set to face Josh Taylor who holds the IBF championship at 140 in the finals of the World Boxing Super Series. Has pulled out of the competition. The scheduled unification bout was expected to take place in October. In July Jose Ramirez added the WBO championship to his WBC championship. Ideally, the winner of Prograis & Taylor would have faced Ramirez for the undisputed championship at 140. That is now on hold.
I Lost My Glasses A short True Life Story. On the way to the gym. I was wearing my sunglasses and placed my prescription glasses in the pocket I also keep my phone in. My guess is that when I took my phone out to check the time my glasses fell out and I did not notice. I really liked those frames, as a matter of fact, I just had an eye exam and was having new lenses made for them. There is a silver lining. If that’s the right term to use here. A few years back someone left a pair of glasses lying around my home. After talking to my housemates no one could figure out who they belonged to. I liked those frames and used them for my next pair of glasses. I hope that someone found my glasses yesterday and is putting them to good use for themselves. So I am without glasses for a week or two. Unless I misplaced them in my room somehow.
What’s next for Keith Thurman After Losing to Manny Pacquiao? Thurman will take a bit of a step back, but I don’t expect it to be that big of a step back. I don’t see an immediate rematch happening. Maybe there will be a rematch sometime down the line? He won’t get the best of the best like the winner of Errol Spence & Shawn Porter, or Terence Crawford. This being said I don’t see Thurman taking a big step down. I fell that the loser of Errol Spence & Shawn Porter could likely be his next opponent. Other possibilities include Danny Garcia, Mikey Garcia, Yordenis Ugas & Sergey Lipinets.
Coming off his big win over Keith Thurman. What’s next for Future Hall Of Fame boxer Manny Pacquiao Don’t count on Pacquiao or any PBC promoted boxer to be in the same ring with Terence Crawford anytime soon. However, he still ha plenty of options. I believe that the PBC is going to match Manny Pacquiao up with the winner of Errol Spence Jr & Shawn Porter who fight to unify the IBF & WBC welterweight championships scheduled for September. If that falls through. Pacquiao has other options within the PBC. Mikey Garcia & Danny Garcia have the most appeal, but there is also Yordenis Ugas and Sergey Lipinets. What about a rematch with Floyd Mayweather? I think that if it happens it is likely to be next. I think that if Mayweather wants to make the fight now is the time to do it. I really don’t think Pacquiao beats Spence, and despite coming off a win over Thurman. I’m not sure he beats Porter either.
Everyone Needs To Fell Loved! M Is For Mental Health Wellness & Growth Season 1 Episode 1 Feeling loved is a human need. Not feeling loved leads to depressed feelings which leads to a lot of other issues. I fell that as adults we make other adults fell loved by saying and doing nice things. A simple “I love you” to another adult goes a long way. However, when it comes to children. Saying and doing nice things is something you should still do. It’s not how you make them feel loved. So How do you make children feel loved? By being supportive and encouraging. By allowing them to learn, grow and develop into the best version of themselves than can be.
Boxing is the subject that I fell the most comfortable and confident talking about, and that does not just go for sports. Sop when tragedies happen in boxing like they did this weekend. I fell I need to talk about what can be done to best prevent future tragedies from happening.
Boxing Must Enact Protocols To Best Protect Its Participants every boxer who gets into the ring knows there are risks. They know that they might not come out the ring the same or at all. These risks are not exclusive to boxing, but I believe magnified in boxing. This includes other combat sports as well as non-combat sports. Just because these risks are understood. It does not mean these risks should be accepted or understood as “part of the game”. There needs to be standardized rules and protocols in place, that are not subject to Athletic Commission or Sanctioning Bodie’s selectivity. I am not a doctor or a medical professional, but I do have some suggestions. Have a trained medical professional in each corner to observe the boxer to look for any indications something might be wrong. The referee can stop a fight to allow a doctor to decide if a cut is bad enough to end a fight. Also, allow the referee to stop the fight and have a doctor look over the boxer f they feel something might be wrong. Get boxes to post-fight medical exams and to any medical help they need right after the fight. If the placement of padding inside boxing gloves makes a difference. Standardize the gloves. The truth is that even with the best protocols in place we can’t prevent something bad from ever happening. However, we can greatly reduce the risk and how often they happen.

I fell there is a lot of bad information when it comes to helping those of us who experience what is often referred to as “Invisible Disabilities”.

Manny Pacquiao Beats Keith Thurman Reaction! Manny Pacquiao becomes the WBA welterweight champion of the world by winning a 12 round split decision over Keith Thurman! I had picked Thurman to win the fight going in. I just felt he was the better boxer. I was proven wrong! My personal score may have been closer than most, but I still had Pacquiao beating Thurman. I have to tip my hat to Manny Pacquiao for beating Keith Thurman who I also have to tip my hat to for showing humility in defeat. It’s a trait we see far too little of in boxing.
