WBC featherweight champion Jhonny Gonzalez (56-8, 48 KO’s) retained his WBC title tonight with a 10 round technical decision on Saturday night (May 24th) against #12 WBC Guyanese champion Clive Atwell (12-1-1, 7 KO’s) at the Convention Center in Acapulco, Mexico. The referee stopped the bout after Gonzalez was cut over his left eye from a head-butt. The fight then went to the cards with Gonzalez, 32, winning by the scores of 99-89, 96-92 and 98-90.
Gonzalez dominated the entire fight with his hard power shots and stiff jab. Atwell was much too slow to get anything going with his offense in the fight and he ended up taking one-way punishment from the 1at round until it was finally stopped in the 10th. Atwell would fire back with his shots, but he was so slow that it made it easy for Gonzalez to get out of the way of his shots without getting hit

This was inevitable as Sammy is one of four significant captains in the almost nine decades of West Indies participation in Test Cricket—the others being Frank Worrell, Clive Lloyd and Vivian Richards. Note, I say significant; not best. What they all have had in common is that they assumed the captaincy and presided over the team at critical eras in Caribbean Post- Colonial history—Independence, Black Power and Radical Nationalism and Globalization/Structural Adjustment.
To get to what I am saying we have to go back to the appointment of Worrell in 1960 and, as CLR James would demand of us, extend our thoughts Beyond a Boundary. Read the rest of this entry
