A WEEK in LA.

The Staples Centre was nearly empty when I first arrived
there on fight day, a few technicians, the ring-card squad, officials in
blazers and Jack Reiss sitting quietly in an empty row of seats.

Big Jack was having a reflective moment, perhaps gazing
at the 6.9 of canvas space once occupied for about eight seconds by Tyson
Fury’s sleeping body. Reiss, Fury and the last-round miracle, our own boxing
nativity.
