LANCE 'HURRICANE' HOBSON
The enthralling and very personal story no mother wants to tell, but Marea Hobson must if she is to save others from the fate that befell her only son. A must read for every parent.
Lance was small for his age and new in town, the perfect target for school bullies. The once cheerful child now came home in tears, and to give him back his self-confidence his parents encouraged him to learn boxing. So it was at 10 years of age that Lance discovered the love of his sport. He made friends and avoided the bullies, rose through amateur ranks winning numerous titles, excelled at football, and tried out for the Olympic team before turning professional.
Was his death in the boxing ring an inevitable result of a ‘Perfect Storm’? Did the bullies’ bashings to his head set off a chain of events; did the lack of headwear for young boxers contribute; should the referee have seen what his mother could so clearly see on her television screen as her son’s eyes glazed over?
