In case anyone is curious, this is what Bruce Seldon is fighting tonight on the Johnson/Vargas undercard.
Well, it's not the whole thing. I imagine Mr. Bello needed to wait until those astronauts fixed the Hubble Telescope to shoot the rest. Needless to say, Gabe Brown -- who weighed in at a svelte 359 -- is not a fitness freak. It seems almost insane that this sort of thing can happen in an age when proper diet and nutrition isn't exactly a mysterious dark art, known only to weirdos like Jack LaLane. And even though this is an extreme case, it just seems like the current heavyweight crop is rife with more tub-lardiness and blobbosity than ever before.
The problem might be that large, athletic, disciplined guys are just getting coaxed into other sports these days at an earlier age. I don't mind that boxing isn't as broadly popular as it was when I was growing up, but I do feel a little twinge of shame anytime I see fights like Toney/Oquendo or Chambers/Peter (...or Arreola/McLine or even tonight's Johnson/Vargas). If young kids happen to channel surf onto stuff like that, the chances of them being transformed into lifelong boxing fans or even future fighters are quite a bit slimmer than Mr. Brown's waistline.
