Lacy scores KO over radio show host!

PRESS RELEASE: Undefeated IBF super middleweight champion JEFF "Left Hook" Lacy scored a box office KO over local radio star PACO, "The WLLD Morning Show" stunt boy, today at the St. Pete Times Forum!  Paco had challenged Lacy to a one-hour ticket selling duel at the Forum's McDonald's box office today to see who could sell the most tickets to Lacy's August 6 world title defense against IBO champion Robin Reid.  Lacy was the clear victor, selling the majority of tickets, worth several thousands of dollars to the fifty-plus buyers who braved the heavy rain to trek down and buy the tickets directly from their favorite personality."Paco took it like a man," gloated the victorious Lacy.  "I hope he takes it equally as well when he enters the ring as my sparring partner!"              

The stakes were high on this wager.  Paco is now entitled to a world championship trip straight to knuckle junction...a sparring session Lacy!"              

Calls to Paco's health insurance plan have not been returned.
