Getting knocked out in two consecutive high-profile fights has to be a devastating blow to a fighter’s confidence. And the idea of Tim Sylvia banging your ex-girlfriend, sure, that would make anybody want to throw up until they died. But we weren’t expecting this troubling bit of news from a fighters.com article posted yesterday:
* I’m taking this to mean that he made his confession to Fighters.com last night, not that he played Russian Roulette last night.
Hopfully the poem that the priest read him was so good that it made Arlovski not want to put a gun to his head anymore, but some ongoing professional help would probably be wise in this situation. To play Russian Roulette even once would suggest that you might be one chair short of a dinette set. To do it more than once would suggest that it’s only a matter of time before you die tragically.
Arlovski went on to say that he’s still working with Freddie Roach and plans to have his professional boxing debut in the fall.
