    I have to give props to Sheldon Westcott. I know he wanted to keep it quiet before the fight, but he was involved in a car accident about 9 days before his fight with Thomas Denny. Sheldon didn’t want anyone knowing about it prior to the fight in case he lost because he thought people would think he was using it as an excuse. I saw his vehicle and I knew he wasn’t 100% going in and I wuold be lying if i didn’t say I had my concerns.
    I talked to him today and asked him if I could share the news and Sheldon said it was fine. Just wanted to again say how proud I am of Sheldon and he showed a lot of balls by going through with the fight!! We always hear when guys pull out of fights….but we don’t always know when guys put on for the fans when they aren’t 100%. My hat is off to you Mr. Westcott!!
