Brad Tavares wins the Internet today, as he does a good deed simply to do it.
Our main man, Evan Shoman posted about Norman Parke’s involvement in a shady deal where he took a fan’s money for some fight-worn gloves, and never produced the gloves, or returned the guy’s money. It’s been dragging on for a long time and the fan, Honky Extraordinaire again took to Twitter to explain the situation. Brad Tavares saw the tweet and stepped up proving he’s a good dude.
When Brad saw that the fan had not received his gloves or his refund, he offered up a pair of his own fight-worn gloves to help take the sting out of the deal. It was a really kind gesture by Tavares and shows that there are good people out there who will do nice things, simply because it’s in their nature to do so. Here’s the back and forth on Twitter.
So there you go, just like that, Brad has done something great for a fan of the sport. Now, hopefully, Norman Parke will do the right thing and refund the money or make good on the gloves. My understanding is this has been going on since LAST JUNE.
