Perry Ballard: Middleweight Champion & Nice Guy Emeritus
Just when you think everyone in boxing is a scumbag or an idiot, you hear about a guy like Perry Ballard. The middleweight champion of some organization called the World Boxing Empire, Ballard put aside his 18 1 record and demonstrated something even more impressive in a boxer, selflessness. Normally boxers think only about themselves, but Ballard went out of his way to help out the less fortunate.
Ballard, you see, chased down, tackled, and restrained a robber who had stolen $473 from a taxi driver. The only flaw in the whole evening was that Ballard didnt demonstrate his power (14 knockouts in 19 fights) by popping the guy a few times while he had him restrained. That's good citizenship, kids.
I guess Ballard really is a nice guy, even to people who deserve a good beating.
