What a ******. The judge will slap his hands, tell him to pay the cabby, give him a little fine and send him home. Although I agree Mr. Crap, about to many punches to the head, that doesn't excuse drunk and stupid.

To those of you who bash him so easily you might want to consider his mental state after repeated blows to the head over many years. Being very familiar with the sport I can assure you its only half his fault.

You wouldn't demean an ex-football or basketball player for his achy knees. Anyone spending enough time in the ring has left something there.

Does a man in good mental health with millions stiff a cabbie for $25?

I fault those around him for being there for the party but not forcing him into treatment. I'm sure they realize he has residual brain damage and impulse control.

Just my opinion...

He is old for a boxer,but young as a man.I hope he turns his life around.This is really not that bad.$25 dollars not paid to a cab is a lot better than a DUI or worse,killing someone while behind the wheel.It is a downward spiral that I hope he can stop.He was surrounded by "friends" when he was on top.Maybe at least one of them is a TRUE friend and can help him regain control of his life. Unfortunately.."laugh and the world laughs with you,cry and you cry alone"

Maybe he was there, they just couldn't see him that's why he is called the "Ghost". It's a shame for someone with his talent in boxing, to let alcohol ruin his career. But he is not the first to do that, and won't be the last either.

At least he was smart and took a cab instead of driving drunk.

Oh, and I'm sure it will be all the bartenders fault. Here's and idea Kelly. If you have a problem with the bottle,like I did, distance yourself from it.

Looks like the booze has a very firm grip on him. If he's not careful he'll lose it all.

He couldn't make it to court cause he was in Rehab! At Billy's Bar! Another Loser but he has Millions of dollars, just can't afford $25.00 for ride home. Lots cheaper than another drunk-driving charge.
