Social media is a powerful tool. One tweet can get a professional athlete fined or suspended. For one boxer, one tweet pretty much ended any further opportunities in the sport.
Boxing promoter Lou DiBella axed one his boxers, Tor Hamer, on Twitter. DiBella tweeted:
By the way, Tor, you are released. WTF!!!
A cool three exclamation marks too. So yes, Hamer quit while sitting on his stool and gets dumped. This is not the first time Tor Hamer has quit. Back in December 2012, Hamer quit after the fourth round against Vyacheslav Glazkov.
Without a promoter backing him, Tor Hamer will have a difficult time trying to get a fight. Fights is what brings in the income for boxers.
Perhaps there is an underlying injury Hamer has that forced him to quit. For now, his name should be QuitTor Hamer. Okay, that was bad. Really though. The guy is a quitter.
