Teddy Atlas Suspended For A Week By ESPN

Wednesday, January 30, 2008


You always love to see producers and the talent argue or fight at a.....umm fight, but you hate to see that confrontation almost come to blows. Via the boxing site Boxing Scene...

As the story goes, Atlas confronted Loughrey over allegedly showing favoritism to certain promoters and matchmakers, who were abusing their ESPN connections by taking fighters from other promoters with promises of potential ESPN dates. The verbal exchange was aggressive and heard by many who were present at the event.

This past Friday, Atlas was suspended by ESPN for a period of one-week. Several sources have indicated to BoxingScene.com that an internal inquiry is taking place to find out exactly what transpired between Loughrey and Atlas, and the basic facts of the subject matter involved in the argument.
I'm pretty sure the last person I'd want to get into a fight with is a boxing trainer. Also, it's been a suspension type few weeks for ESPN hasn't it? Who's next....Rachel Nichols???

I don't know about a suspension, but after the Super Bowl, ESPN usually cryogenically freezes Ed Werder's mustache until Cowboys training camp begins.

I like Teddy Atlas.

I don't get him confused with Tony Atlas.

Sounds like Teddy probably said something like: "I am gonna find yer wife, see, and then when I'm done hitting her repeatedly with rights to the head, I'm gonna go for da body and then take away her will to take any more punishment in hopes of scoring a knockdown. If I can do that, then I can win the fight. So know dat."

Teddy Atlas makes Emmitt Smith sound like a Mensa member. Methinks he took a few too many blows to the ol' noggin.
