JT is getting close to five-O. Danggit! When is he going to quit boxing. Probably not until the fans and fanfaronades quit throw their money away believing that Tapia is everlast. Well he is. NYET! Dude is past long in the tooth. The tooth has fallen out, and the last person that JT smoked crack with stole the tooth and put it under his pillow. But tooth fairy didn't came. So the druggies grinded up the tooth and smoked it up. Hehehehehe! Isn't there a boxing retirement pension in New Mexico, as there now is in California? If not, make one just for Johnny. Holla!
