The NY Daily News ran a story today on heavyweight champ Wlad Klitchsco's next fight. It mentioned he does magic to help him with his hand speed. His manager, Emanual Steward said,
"With those tricks it's all about making the eyes move where you want them to."
It also mentioned Ali used to do magic as well.
Heavyweight boxing is not what it used to be, but there are still some good fights from time to time. Klitchsco's next could be one of them...thanks to his magic training.
