Hector (The Hard Way) Bello  Made His Amature Debut At Gleason's Gym ​on Saturday May 19, 2018

Saturday May 19, 2018

Hector fought valiantly and represented The Rising Storm Boxing Team well. My fighters’ consistently give maximum effort, and that is something I’m very proud of. The referee gave Hector an unwarranted 8 count in the first round; my presumption is that it was intended to influence the judges’ scoring. I don’t like Boxing’s culture, patronage and favoritism is pervasive in my experience. The person who was vehement about having to reschedule Hector’s bout (Hector’s match had to be moved for a litany of reasons I don’t care to get into), ended up presiding over his fight, a very interesting coincidence. Hector was hurt in the second round. He failed to keep his right hand high in close. With both hands low, he gave his opponent’ too many offensive opportunities, also, he didn’t throw sufficient combinations, two or more punches at a time, he, primarily, settled for one which allowed the other pugilist to easily reset. The referee stopped the contest with seconds left in the 3rd, if they didn’t end it in round two when Hector was most hurt, why would they do it in the third? They should have let him finish the fight, he wasn’t in distress (distress, to my understanding, is when a fighter's body language and demeanor indicate they don't want to be in the ring) and he wasn’t disoriented. The fight was not administered  fairly. The premature stoppage seemed to be out of spite. The other fighter was really tough and he was the better man that day, and he deserves his credit; I just don’t think the fight was objectively terminated or handled in good spirit.

Please Help Get Justice For Hector (The Hard Way) Bello May 26, 218

Saturday May 19, 2018

I am filing a formal complaint against Gleason's Gym. Not only was Hector's bout administered to unfairly, they changed the opponent without notifying me. We agreed to fight 20 year old Kevens Desorches who had a record of 1W 0L, instead they switched the fighter to Ceaser IIivecura. According to the matchmaker, Ceaser is 35. The matchmaker later told me Hector's opponent was actually 34 after speaking to Ceaser's coach. I spoke to the matchmaker over the phone who eventually said, "I'm tired of dealing with this Sh-t" and gave me Ceasar's coaches' phone number. When I called, I asked for the exact spelling of the fighter's last name because I wasn't sure if it started with two capital I's or L's. The coach would not confirm although I felt I provided sufficient information and details to be certain of who I was, Ceasar's coach kept saying, "I don't know who you are."


Also, although the matchmaker provided the coaches' number, the name was not. I asked the matchmaker to text it to me immediately after sending the number, the individual did not follow through and I found the interaction unprofessional and worth reporting. The Chairperson of the licensing committee told me that Ceasar was 35 and a senior fighter. There are clearly conflicting accounts that need to be sorted out.


Nevertheless, whether Ceasar is 34 or 35, it is no consolation. Fighter's are generally matched close in age and experience, particularly someone who is competing in their first bout, obviously that was not the case in terms of age, egregiously so. Hector is only 22; his body is still growing, you don't hit your prime until 26 to 32. We have a GoFundMe account, $30 has been raised so far. We need to garner, at least, another $120 to file a formal complaint with USA boxing against Gleason's Gym. Please support our team and this cause not just for Hector, but for every coach and athlete who came before us. This is not the first time I have been dealt with in what I felt was an underhanded fashion with USA Boxing Administrators'. These type of incidents have to stop, as Civil Rights Activist John Lewis says when you see injustice, you have a duty to "raise your voice." I want USA Boxing to bar the referee who presided over the fight from refereeing any of my athletes' future contest. I also want the loss expunged from Hector's record. You can go to the following URL to donate and help us get justice, https://www.gofundme.com/92fu9t-road-to-the-championship, thanks.
