New York, NY(7/24/14) - Tonight in NYC at B.B. King Blues Club and Grill middleweight contender Avtandil Khurtsidze returned to the ring after a nearly three-year hiatus to claim a victory over Allen Conyers on the DiBella Entertainment Broadway Boxing card.
After the bout Khurtsidze commented on his victory and ring return.
"I have not fought in almost three years time and it felt tremendous to once again be back inside the boxing ring. An athlete's lifespan at which they can compete at the highest level in their respective sports' is very short and precious, and I am so thankful to once again be able to compete in the sport I so dearly love."

What I find strange to me, is that when someone gets knocked out, boxing fans seem to forget the rest of the fight. When they called Juan Manuel Marquez punch a lucky shot, never understood that he landed this punch over and over in the same fight. Manny Pacquiao was hurt several times in this fight, so his knockout seemed to be academic. You would think that media and boxing fans would take time out to learn about the sport.
I know this is old and many are going to say why are you bringing this old fight back up, because it spoke volumes. It turned the sport around 180 because it was the first time, fans weren't asking for a Mayweather vs Pacquiao fight but will Pacquiao ever fight again, and the door opened for new talent to…Continue
