That's entertainment
Boxing matches are hassle for sports departments — they end late, and imagery is tightly controlled. Still, we can make sure the big words land a big punch.

The main headline here is OK, but look at the drophead. It has some "entertaining" redundancy. It appeared this way in the print edition in the Sunday paper — not good, but again, deadlines are a problem. Maybe time didn't allow a revision. But the version you see here is from this paper's Web site long after the bout was over, with plenty of time to rewrite and repair rather than "repurpose."
