4 thoughts on “Gabriel Montoya: “Something of the Year”, including a thinly-veiled (and admittedly hilarious) shot at Dan Rafael

  1. Well done, Montoya!

    Rafael’s a polite, unoriginal bore; the very sort for whom such lifetime achievement stuff is made.

    • While Montoya could probably do without some of the self-righteousness that has crept into a couple of his recent articles, he is dead right when he lambasts Rafael’s BWAA journalism award.

      Though I often enjoy his output, it’s a pretty pathetic choice. I wonder if the award is for his toe jokes or his water pressure reports, because it cant be for the strong journalism and consistently eloquent articles he produces, because neither exists.

      He is a disseminator of information, relying on the likes of Schaefer on his speed dial, and never does any actual significant investigative work on any of boxing’s most important problems
