Just prior to last night's light-middleweight bout between the "exciting, unbeaten and seemingly unstoppable" James "Mandingo Warrior" Kirkland and Japanese boxer Nobuhiro Ishida, promoter Lou DiBella Tweeted "YOU'RE KIDDING,RIGHT?" when asked who he liked to win. As in, c'mon, Kirkland.
Reality: Ishida dropped the ex-con three times. In the first round. Oops.
DiBella follow-up Tweeted a few minutes later, after Ishida raised his record to 23-6-2, with his seventh KO.
