Marvin “Papi Gallo” Jones and Ramon Luis Nicolas were in the middle of a bout when the black phone slipped out from Jones’ black and red shorts.
Normally I wouldn't care who reigned victorious in some foreign boxing match between two fighters I will probably never see again in my life. In this instance, however, it is imperative to the story. Ramon Luis Nicolas needed to win and he needed to win convincingly. Did you need anymore motivation Roman? You're opponent was so preoccupied sexting his post match booty calls and arranging the afterparty that he couldn't even remember to take his phone out of his shorts. If there is one sport that absolutely commands your focus prior to a match, it is boxing. Lack the slightest of attention to detail and you could be picking your teeth off ground and eating through a tube for the
foreseeable future. To not only disrespect the match by playing on your phone minutes before, but to lack the foresight to even leave it in the locker is the epitome of a 2015 problem.
What an indictment on society. Can't even cut ourselves away from the world of technology when it could result in getting beaten to a bloody pulp. Little piece of advice Jones, never bring a phone to a fist fight. I wonder if it was intentional. Can't sacrifice the authenticity of the post match selfie. Can't live tweet a fight if you only update post round. Those are just the internet rules of the increasingly narcissistic civilization. I'm starting to wonder what's worse, that this guy forgot to take his phone out of his pocket or that boxing shorts even have pockets to begin with? That's got to be a new phenomenon. Can't float like a butterfly and sting like a bee if you got your keys, wallet, and phone clanking around in boxing trunks. I don't even like running when I have my keys in my pocket, can't imagine trying to dodge a hard left with the distractions of a group text. Hell, if I got caught in another one of those mid round I would probably ask the opposing boxer to put me in a coma.
