Diaz’ hearing postponed; 25 subpoenas on the way (access required)

The Arizona Boxing Commission rarely has to deal with dozens of subpoenas and the prospect of 10 hours of witness testimony for a simple licensing hearing. Yet that's exactly the scenario that was laid out by Joe Diaz' attorneys this morning.

  1. Is boxing any more corrupt than other sports or just worse at keeping it under cover? I don’t know much about this Diaz guy, but if I can make a generalization, when you’re surrounded by shady practices and shady people you likely know what’s going on. Even if he didn’t sign anything himself, I would guess he knew what the deal was. I’m not saying that was the case, but it’s easy to turn a blind eye to the bad and justify your involvement in your mind. Lord knows I’ve worked for companies who didn’t always do the right thing, or the legal thing, but I did and said nothing to protect my job and my interests.

    I guess what I’m saying is, in my experience, completely innocent people rarely get caught up in webs of lies and scandals.
