R.I.P. O’Neill Bell

It was announced that former Cruiserweight champion O’Neill Bell died by gunfire in Atlanta on November 25, 2015. The ex-champ was 41 years old at his time of passing.

I’ll never forget the time “Supernova” pulled a come-from-behind 10th round knockout against Jean Marc Mormeck at Madison Square Garden. It was an ice-cold night in January of 2006, I was making my first ever visit to New York City. I was stationed in press at the Mecca of Boxing to witness a true Cruiserweight classic , covering the action for a now-defunct newspaper called Punch News.

With the victory, “Supernova” walked out with the WBA, WBC & IBF titles – becoming the first fighter to unify the titles since Evander Holyfield. This fight would mark his greatest night as a pro and his last big victory in the ring.

This rumble set the tune for the main event where an Argentinian no-name Carlos Baldomir burst onto the national scene by pulling a huge upset over 15-to-1 favorite Zab Judah to win the undisputed Welterweight crown.

The former world champion was 40-years-old at his time of passing.

  10. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of neighbors will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune Social is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
