After 13 years of full-time boxing coverage, I’m downshifting to take care of business in other areas. Call it what you will – boredom, a decline in the overall sport that doesn’t satisfy the way it used to, or the need to re-broaden my focus. While I will continue to cover some the bigger fights in Vegas, and the local shows where I’m, once again, residing, that being Albuquerque, N.M., expect to see my byline with less frequency. New projects, a return to full-time teaching and grad school may keep me from every night at the fights, but my pen, camera and smart-ass comments will not gather rust.
