This press release / article / biased hate letter by Fiona Manning is a huge poorly written laundry list of complaints about our favorite guy in the world, CSAC head Armando Garcia. It’s full of fun stuff like this:
Garcia demoted Dean Lohuis, the Los Angeles man who WAS the Chief Official most boxing insiders always assumed was the head of the Commission since he is the only official ever seen at fights. Lohuis was stripped of all his duties in what most boxing insiders see as an obvious attempt to get him to resign. Left out of the loop, Dean was no longer permitted to assign fights, approve boxers or make decisions beyond hamburger or salad for lunch.
Under Garcia’s new rules, blood work bypasses Dean and this led to last year’s June 3 fiasco at the Doubletree Hotel in Ontario on a Thompson boxing promotion. Matchmaker Alex Campanovo received the blood work for super featherweight Tommy Perez, which he then sent to CSAC inspector Joe Borrielli. Neither man noticed that the blood work showed that Perez was HIV positive.
