Female Boxer Dies After Bout

...Becky Zerlentes, 34, of Fort Collins died Sunday afternoon, said Howard Daniel of the Denver County coroner's office. A preliminary cause of death was blunt force trauma to the head, but results from an autopsy conducted Monday were not immediately available.

Zerlentes was hit by a punch by her opponent, Heather Schmitz, and despite wearing protective headgear fell unconscious to the canvas during the third round of her match late Saturday, USA Boxing spokeswoman Julie Goldsticker.

The fatal blow, captured by CBS station KCNC-TV, shows a right hook landing on Zerlentes' left temple.

Ringside physicians jumped into the ring but Zerlentes never regained consciousness and died several hours later at a hospital. ...

This is the first true sanctioned boxing death of a woman. Some first Sad May she rest in peace.

In reply to: ask the Romans

?But know this, that in the last days critical times hard to deal with will be here. For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, self-assuming, haughty, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, disloyal, having no natural affection, not open to any agreement, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, without love of goodness, betrayers, headstrong, puffed up [with pride], lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God, having a form of godly devotion but proving false to its power; and from these turn away.? (2Ti 3:1-5)

Relevance? ?Jehovah himself examines the righteous one as well as the wicked one, And anyone loving violence His soul certainly hates. For Jehovah is righteous; he does love righteous acts. The upright are the ones that will behold his face.? (Ps 11:5,7)

could have applied to anytime, not just the last days. Make your predictions vague enough and people will drag them out every couple of years and say "See! This is exactly what he was talking about."

Dan, I knew you were too clever to fall for it.

You immediately recognized that

{ One World War- to end all wars- being followed immediately by another and worse World War, and that
Wealthy countries piling up more wealth by selling more weapons to the poorest countries, and that
Rape and mass murder becoming weapons of war more useful than fission, and that
Rape and mass murder becoming weapons of war especially useful to those who fight for their God, and that
The 20th century having two- count 'em- two worldwide plagues, the second worse than the first, and that
Marburg virus and avian flu waiting in the wings of Africa and Asia, and that
Men and women everywhere becoming faint out of fear of daily life, and that
Men and women, who are already too wealthy to be able to spend their money in a human lifetime, committing felonies to amass more money, and that
Men and women making their own kind into idols, and that
Crockery being replaced by schoolchildren as accepted subjects of anger, and that
Broken treaties being made into "roadmaps" and "roadmaps" leading their cartographers off into quagmires, and that
The AIDS lifestyles being encouraged everywhere by popular entertainment, and that
An all-time high in numbers and percentage of the population starving in the midst of plenty, and that
The most "highly-evolved" species "going down slow," and that
Moral leaders- the clergy- abetting their own immorality and greed }

is merely a collective 2.0 on the seismometer of history. Business as usual. Or, as one writer put it, "Why, from the day our forefathers fell asleep [in death], all things are continuing exactly as from creation?s beginning.?
That makes you smarter than Jesus and tougher than Paul. Congratulations.

And your answer to life's problems is? Desperate minds want to know.

adventuring into gender equality -- if men can do it, why can't women. (proving something not worth proving, IMO)

To hit and be hit, a pain sport, aiming for the knock out.

There's short term consequences and long term effects. Some suicidal attempt in slow motion, yearning for recognition, dead or alive -- in the end, always a hero for some.

Virtual death of men's boxing?

I'm not sure about that Rob. Seems to be pretty popular despite the semi-mess the whole "belt" thing, Tyson, etc. has become for the heavyweight title.
