Boxcino 2015 Ends An Era In Boxing

The Boxcino Finals on ESPN2’s Friday Night fights produced great action and superior stories. As John “The Apollo Kid” Thompson IV obliterated Boxcino veteran Brandon Adams, one could not help but to fall in love with the storyline.  Thompson, a last minute replacement, and only claim to fame prior to the tournament was getting crushed in the second round against Frank Galarza, took his Wally Pip moment all the way to boxing’s cat bird seat. The sky is the limit for Thompson now, and bigger pay days soon await for this talented pugilist/artist.

'One Man Riot' Jody Meikle back fighting after prison sentence A year ago you were involved in an incident which resulted in a prison sentence. Can you tell us what happened

I was involved in an incident with an Iraqi gentleman who was causing trouble with my friend; I initially acted as the peacemaker until he wrapped a bottle around my head. I basically battered him inside the pub, was thrown out by bouncers and while I was on the ground being restrained he came out and hit me. The outside was captured on camera - I've got up and battered him again; I put him down about seven times but being that off his nut on cocaine he kept getting up.
