Chris Harper is now a boxing legend.
The man lost in seconds.
He left the ring on his own two feet
after staring into the other boxer’s eyes.
He later said it was about the money.
It was his protest about not getting paid enough.
I understand that.
Many of us have done shitty jobs
or felt we don’t get paid what we deserve.
Also, this is Boxing.
The job involves getting repeatedly hit – usually in the head.
The boxer who left the ring doesn’t look in the best shape to me.
His opponent, Efe Ajagba –
with a record of dispatching
all his previous opponents in the first round,
looks like he could do real lasting damage.
Chris Harper made the right call. The money wasn’t worth it.
