Jose Ribalta Believes The Sun Can Cure EVERYTHING?

I like to keep an eye on any seemingly legitimate account of boxers on Facebook, Twitter, etc. As best as I can tell, a man who fought a who's who of the heavyweight division for many years, Jose "El Nino" Ribalta, has been very vocal on Facebook, making sure to give the skinny on his personal experiences, on many occasions. Well, this one's a doozy, and strays a bit beyond ring talk. He says recently:

In plain text: "My .facebook friends, for those of you who have cancer or aids or any other body sickness. I tell you that being under the sun for three six hour streight. I guarantee that you will have a great chance of being heald by the sun. So please before you do this action just read about how powerful the sun is and how many sickness it will cure. Becauase is great for all kind of deseas that are body experience. So plesse remain under the sun for about at least three hours. Because I stay for about seven hours at least seven hours long,but I tell three hours for at least a month and five days a week you will feel great and your sickness gone."

As you can see, he goes on to defend this opinion when questioned by saying:

"David Bates,so then God is not who I thought he was. Because if you believe that foolishness,well then all African slaves had cancer. Men make things up. Even other nationalities that became slaves did not have cancer,maybe they died because of the hard work that was given to them,but never cancer was mention,all these sickness begin because the love of money. Because aids was intended for Afrcans from what I know."

"During slavery days,masters were dying but not the slaves,only when they werr being killed." 

I'm sure he means well, although I might take that with a salt shaker. A few grains may not cover you as well as sunscreen. File under "Social Media Spotlight."

Gennady Golovkin: The Number One Ring-Ranked Middleweight Contender Since 2013


Gennady Golovkin has been the Ring-ranked number one contender for three years. Through three different champions. Sergio Martinez, Miguel Cotto and Saul Alvarez. Young Mr. Alvarez feels he's being rushed into this match. This is an embarrassment to boxing.
