THE PROFESSIONAL BOXING REFEREE: RUNNIN' AND HOLDIN': Is it always a foul?

By Armando Garcia: Holding is one of the most obvious poor tactics in the sport of boxing. It not only infuriates the fans, but it negates action during the bout. Add to it a little 'running' and you have a not so delectable recipe that quickly creates irate fans. THE PROFESSIONAL BOXING REFEREE: RUNNIN' AND HOLDIN': Is it always a foul?

THE PROFESSIONAL BOXING REFEREE: The powers of the referee and 'dealing with gray areas'

By Armando Garcia: With power comes responsibility. My basic philosophy (taught to me by one much wiser) of police work was that you have such tremendous power and authority that you should never be a jerk when exercising it and you should always strive to be fair.
