The Barbershop – October 2, 2013

By Allan Scotto

Happy Wednesday, fans!
Welcome to this week’s edition of “The Barbershop,” a column designed to give you a forum to speak your mind about our question(s) of the week or any boxing-related issue you would like to comment on. We welcome and appreciate your participation, so take a minute, scroll down and leave your comment below.
Now on to today’s question(s):

Well, it would appear Santa Claus gave Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. an early present, courtesy of another disastrous decision. “Oh well, that’s boxing!” is a statement not ringing true with many fans lately, especially on the heels of C.J. Ross’ card in the recent Floyd Mayweather-Saul Alvarez fight. A growing number of fans are suggesting sinister things that have to do with gambling, similar to insider trading. They point out that these judges are only accountable to these Mickey Mouse commissions who do nothing about improprieties. Well fans, this is your sport; what do you believe?
You pay the bills, fans, so what do YOU think?
Don’t forget to join the fun on Friday nights as I join Randy Gordon and Gerry Cooney on their “Friday Night at the Fights” satellite radio show on Sirius channel 92 and XM channel 208.
We’ll discuss the “Barbershop” question of the week and anything boxing-related you’d like to share or talk about.
The show runs from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., ET, and you can call in and let us know what you think by dialing 1-866-522-2846.
We look forward to hearing from you!
