Pro Boxing only AA Ring Annonuncer Henry "Did-com-bob-u-lating" Jones was offered the job to announce, Friday, Feb. 22, 2013 in DC, by Boxing Promoter. The HJ entourage was making plans to travel, when Jones called President of HJ Fan Club to give this disheartening cancellation, "ESPN said they want to use their own."
A discussion was held, with questions, "Could this be modern day discrimination", "why wouldn't ESPN want to recognize Jones in Black History Month", "Did they know he was to receive an award from the White House" recognizing his contribution to this field? "Is it Racism?"
We want the world to know ESPN may be practicing unfair selections when it comes to AA. What else will be uncovered about this network? Jones should be recognized and contracted with ESPN as being a loquacious boxing ring announcer, educated and profession.
This petition is for ESPN to bring Jones on board. Message to ESPN: The people who fight looks like Jones. Enough of this practice of "using your own, " make Jones "your own!"
We, the undersigned, call on ESPN to cease and desist from this practice of "using our own (white)" announcers.
We charge ESPN with practices of unfair selection, hence, hire Henry "Dis-com-bob-u-lating" Jones to announce fights as equally as hired white boxing announcers.
