Guti Almost Caught A Beatdown From Helen Keller
Real Madrid’s Guti is breathing a sigh of relief after almost getting beat down from a boxer. A deaf and dumb boxer. There’s no shame in getting whupped by a professional but is there any if he’s disabled?
Guti used to be tight with boxer Jorge Muñoz who is deaf. Some reports claim that he is also dumb. Muñoz has been unable to get a boxing licence from the Spanish Boxing Federation presumably because of his disabilities. Guti stood up for him and even wore shirts supporting his cause. For some reason, Guti stopped supporting Muñoz. Bad move.
Muñoz became furious over Guti’s withdrawal of support. He began smashing windows like the Hulk and stalking the Real Madrid star. Things came to a head on Saturday when the two exchanged words and engaged in a car chase in which Guti tried to shake Muñoz by speeding into the Real Madrid training ground parking lot. Security tried to stop him but he slammed his car into them. We’ll let the Guardian’s Sid Lowe take it from here.
Two more security guards arrived on the scene to try to apprehend Muñoz but, as Marca brilliantly put it, “they came across a man who is very strong, physically prepared and his pugilistic knowledge.”
Muñoz laid one out before the police arrived and eventually detained him, leaving him in custody and under a restraining order, Guti with bodyguards and some poor sod to clean up the blood at Valdebebas, while the headline writers gloried in Madrid’s unimpressive but devastatingly effective 2-0 win in Santander: a victory that, according to both Marca and AS, demonstrated Madrid have “the knock-out power of a champion”.
It’s one thing to have a groupie stalker. It’s another to be stalked by a deaf professional fighter. Why not add a jealous bear (animal or man) to the mix just to make it more interesting? When he says he can’t hear you as you plead for mercy, he’s not being facetious. It’s also not clear how one can exchange words with a dumb person but I’m open to any explanation.
**Munoz is only deaf. He says that he is only 37% deaf. I suppose it’s not quite Helen Keller.
