Last week I posted on Joey Torres, the convicted murderer who claims his comeback fight was fixed. Sunday's LA Times has a lengthy feature on Torres. There are several notable elements in the article. First, it explains how Eric Davis, Paul Molitor, and other stars got involved with Torres: from jail, he convinced them to contribute to charity projects he initiated. Torres knew how to hustle.
The Times article also discusses what appears to be an extensive FBI investigation into corruption in boxing, involving "thousands of professional bouts." This could get interesting. Finally, the story of Joey Torres - born Kim Joseph Torrey - itself is simply bizarre.
