"Probably the most important thing in Dog Boxing is good eyes. you have to be able to watch not only the other guy's hands, but his head coming.
Roy Jones Jr. was very good at getting away with head-butting. That's what
made him such a great champion.
Oh, we also have to watch their tails and fangs coming, though. Rough sport,
isn't it ?"
(Canine Ring Magazine, October 2001)
"I tell you about the 2 losses early in my career. One was Shasta
the Bernese Mountain Dog. He attacked me from behind and knocked me down
and out. But that was before the bell rang ! It must have been a DQ !!
The other one was Speedy the Whippet. He just kept running for 6 rounds
and wouldn't want to fight. Somebody tell me why that chicken got the decision."
(Dog Sport illustrated, November 2001)
I usually trained with those heavyweights to prepare for my title fight.
This guy from South Africa is only 4 month old but already weighs 80 lbs.
"Skipper the Dog passed away right before he everyone in the world
started to realize he was the best dog boxer pound-for-pound. He would
sure have dominated his weight class for a decade, and quite possibly have
caught the Heavyweight title sometime in his career."
(Larry Merchandise, DOGHBO commentator. December 2001)
Eye injury. What a shame...
