I Am an other on any elementary school standardized test (which was used to classify us by levels of dumbness). Growing up there was no biracial bubble to circle in with my number 2 pencil, and I was okay with that because I was, an OTHER.

Fury: Me and Joshua is Four Round Fight – Either I Go or He Goes!
Former heavyweight champion Tyson Fury (25-0, 18 KOs) believes a showdown with IBF, IBO, WBA king Anthony Joshua (20-0, 20 KOs) would go no longer than four rounds. Fury vs. Joshua is the biggest fight in British boxing and one of the biggest contests to be made in the sport. Fury lost the IBF title for failing to make a mandatory defense against Czar Glazkov, and then he was forced to drop his remaining world titles in order to deal with his mental health issues. Fury is now in the process of reclaiming his license to box from the British Boxing Board of Control. He's currently training with new coach, Ben Davison, and rapidly dropping pounds for a planned April ring return. If the fight with Joshua comes down, Fury intends to come out guns blazing from the first round and feels confident that one of them will be out cold within the first four rounds. "I'm going to make a bold statement here," Fury told The Pound For Pound Podcast. "If I get the AJ fight, I'm going to make it a four-round fight. He can't underestimate my power and my size and strength. I want to make it a Tommy Hearns vs Marvin Hagler remake, but in the heavyweight division.READ MORE
Easter vs Fortuna: Fight preview and matchup
Robert Easter Jr Record: 20-0 (14 KO) ... Streak: W20 ... Last 5: 5-0 ... Last 10: 10-0 ... Stance: Orthodox ... Height/Reach: 5’11” / 76” ... Age: 26 Thoughts: Easter is big and tall for the division, just under six feet with a long reach that gives him a serious advantage against most opponents, which will be there again on Saturday against Javier Fortuna. Easter has a case for being the best lightweight in the world right now, with Mikey Garcia having moved up. This fight for Easter is going to be interesting, I think, because he’s at the point where he’s the favorite, and clearly so, but he’s fighting a talented opponent. He was hyped by Sampson Lewkowicz as a potential “next Pacquiao” or “next Sergio” at one point. He moved up in weight — cautiously — after that, and has won four straight since, three of those fights coming at home in the Dominican. The other fight was a November 2016 decision victory over Omar Douglas, where Fortuna came off the canvas and hardly dominated. Fortuna is a fairly small lightweight in general, and he’s facing a very big lightweight. Fortuna hasn’t looked great in his two recent notable fights, the loss to Sosa and struggle past Douglas, and he’s giving up a lot of size to Easter, too. Maybe this will be a fight where Fortuna fights to his best ability, maybe it won’t be. Grade: C- Adam Kownacki vs Iago Kiladze: Kownacki (16-0, 13 KO) is coming off of a very impressive performance against Artur Szpilka in July, where he dominated the former title challenger and knocked him out in the fourth round.READ MORE
