Wait I thought Dzinziruk had like a 90% KO ratio or something. Was the last article about him a typo or this one?

Dude's kayo ratio is 62 percent and some change, according to Boxrec. One can do himself a favor and not depend on 100 percent accuracy of anyone. We humans are faulty, as electrical wiring is sometimes. Knowing for yourself is mightily grand and could help correct errors for the benefit of all. Nobody with a brain wants to intentionally put out wrong information for no purpose. We [sic] boys and girls -- meaning friends -- here, not the CIA, FBI or cops. Those suckas sre trained to pretend to make errors and to talk straight out lies. The authentic WiliLEAKS rocks! Holla!
