Forget the Excuses: Ruelas Just Got Beat

As reported by your newspaper ["Pasta, Flu and a Ghost," Dec. 3], I've enjoyed Gabriel Ruelas' many excuses for losing to Azumah Nelson. By the way, when is this excuse coming: that he was soundly beaten by a 37-year-old true champion.

Ruelas, the Goossens, the pay-per-view announcers and the promoter wanted the fight to be Ruelas' revenge, but Azumah Nelson's remarkable skills in the ring turned it into his revenge. Hey, Gabriel: Quit being such a cry-baby.
