By Robert Brizel, Head Real Combat Media Boxing Correspondent
Stockport, Cheshire, United Kingdom lightweight Jamie ‘Devil Child’ Quinn is the Real Combat Media ‘Ringer of the Week’. Quinn had won only one of his last 47 bouts in the past three years, going back to 2015.
Quinn miraculously outpointed 8-2 Thomas Dickson over four hard-fought rounds.
rounds on June 16, 2018, at the Lagoon Leisure Centre in Paisley, Scotland. The referee scored in 39-38 for Quinn, which makes absolutely no sense, given Quinn’s 3 wins and 61 losses coming into the Dickson bout. It has long been rumored the price of fighting a professional ringer is high. Quinn’s boxing ability suddenly ‘improved’ for on reason, which any person of reason would find hard to believe. British boxing has professional losers, who earn a good living and get lots of work.
While this is hard to prove it on the surface, Quinn’s sudden ‘victory’ over Dickson proves no all fighters play the game according to plan, or simply don’t get paid for their work. In the case of the latter, a miraculous win would seem to be the work of the devil.
