After having had 8 fights in 2001, the year he turned professional, and then
losing his only fight of 2002, Bojado has been inactive.  I seem to recall
reading they had a hard time keeping his attention on training and off
women/girls.  It looks as though the "next Duran" will not be happening any
time soon.

Maybe he'll wind up on an upcoming Shobox.

        Spending a loooooong time at the drawing board?  Haven't heard
a thing locally.  Will ask around.

He's living up to his true potential by laying on his couch eating
potato chips and kicking back a few Coronas and watching reruns of the
Honeymooners.

Actually last I heard he weighed in at 180 lbs (ONE HUNDRED AND
EIGHTY) and let's keep in mind this guy is about 5.6 and a
professional athlete that is paid quite handsomely to be in
outstanding physical condition to perform in his chosen sport.

According to Pedro Fernandez over at Ringtalk.com he was working with
Fernando Vargas' trainer, but was kicked out of the gym because of lack of
focus/not being serious.
The next Roberto Duran? I don't think so.

        Sounds like a move Mr. Garcia would make under those
circumstances.  

        Panchito was probably*** out with Fernando too much.

He's too young to be watching that shit.  I didn't know that show until a
few minutes ago thanks to google.  Man that is ancient shit... 1940's or
somethin.

The Man Show ... that is where is at!

     That "shit" (and Jackie Gleason) are still better than 90% of what
passes for "TV comedy" today.

        Yes.  Bojado was pretty well graced with natural talent from
the time he started boxing at the age of 10.  He could hit harder than
any other boxer his age and the power grew as he got older.

Everyone's entitled to their own rankings, and I can't understand combining
shows from so many different genres and formats (sports, news, entertainment,
etc.), but TV Guide had The Honeymooners as the third-best TV show in history,
behing #1 Seinfeld and (cough, gag, ptooey!) I Love Lucy.  (Of course, in a nod
to the short-attention span crowd, and in a reflection of pure marketing, as a
way to attract readers who are attuned to recent shows, they had The Sopranos
fifth.  Go figure.)  I lost interest in that list when I saw that Buffy was
ranked only 41st, much, much too low.  Ridiculous.  Anyway, if you never saw
their list, it's at  http://www.tvguide.com/50th/features/020429a.asp .
