CANADIAN RENOUNCES TITLE AFTER WBU'S RACIST RANT
By Scott Shaffer
Canadian junior middleweight Brandon Brewer (20-0-1) has abandoned a minor championship title after the head of the sanctioning body went on a racist rampage. The statements were issued by Don "Moose" Lewis, who runs the fringe WBU organization. Lewis made the following statement on Facebook [caution, offensive language to follow]:
"I don't f@cking care any more. I almost went to jail today for assaulting an Uber driver. This f@cking Muslim b@stard picks me up since my car is in the shop and he looked and smelled like a herd of goats. I guess since he had been f@cking them the smell got on him."
When called out on his comment, Lewis doubled down, posting on Facebook, "Due to popular demand we are starting the all white boxing league. The aaba -all American boxing association. U have to be white. no black promoters or managers or boxers. No hispanics either. White titles for white folks. Cause y'all know there ain't that many white boys with titles. Yeah! Come on!"
In response, Brewer posted the following statement: "In recent days I have learned of statements made by the President of the WBU which do not in any way reflect the values of me as a professional athlete nor the values of L-Jack Promotions Inc. and our team. As a professional and a role model to many I have decided that I can no longer associate my name and our company with the WBU. It would be unfair to my loyal fans and sponsors to have these remarks in any way attached to the L-Jacks Plaid Army, L-Jack Promotions and our amazing sponsors. It is for this reason that I have decided it would be best to vacate the WBU Intercontinental Title."
