I'd give him the benefit of the doubt, he got up from every knockdown, his lack of boxing skills hurt him for sure, but he was learning and adapting and his corner pulled the carpet from under him....oh...it was the uniform? Not the fact that he simply can’t box for shit?
Right, Flopontay. Right.
The Breland-Volbrecht fight was originally scheduled as a title elimination bout, with the winner earning a shot at champion Lloyd Honeyghan of England. But Honeyghan, who is black, said he would not fight Volbrecht if he defeated Breland because of South Africa's apartheid government. Honeyghan, who also owns the World Boxing Council and International Boxing Federation titles, relinquished the WBA championship to avoid meeting Volbrecht.
