Female boxer gets shot by father right before title fight

This is just messed up:

Rola El-Halabi, an undefeated 25-year-old German prizefighter, was prepping to fight Irma Balijagic Adler of Bosnia for the IBF lightweight title Friday night when her 44-year-old stepdad, Roy El-Halabi, shot her in the hand, knee and feet.
He also shot two security guards before cops overpowered him and arrested him, Berlin police said. The three were taken to a hospital for surgery. Doctors said that the fighter’s injuries were not life-threatening but could end her career.
“Her operation went smoothly, but the shots were intended to end her career and it seems almost certain that will happen,” her promoter Malte Mueller-Michaelis told Australia’s Herald Sun newspaper.
The two security guards were also said to be recovering.
The attack could have been a revenge hit because El-Halabi fired her stepdad from his job as her manager in January, Berlin’s Bild newspaper reported.
“I was with my coach and manager in the changing room when Dad rushed into the room, threatening us with a gun and shouted ‘All out!,” El-Halabi told the paper. “Then he shot me in the hand from three feet away, I cried and cried, begging him to put the gun away.
“He threatened to shoot himself, but he was too cowardly,” she said. “He took his time aiming and shot me in the knee, then in my right foot.”

I wonder what all the other fathers in the world are going to do with themselves now that Best Father of the Year 2011 has been wrapped up so convincingly. Rola was 11-0 (6 KOs) with two belts and was fighting for the IBF Lightweight championship the night her dick of a father decided he was going to end her career.

    Serves that cunt right! That’s what you get when you make a smart move like separating family from business.

    With a name like that, I was thinking at first that it was because she wanted to drive a car or vote or something.


    “You fire me, I FIRE YOU!”  *BANG*

    More reason for me to stay away from Arab chicks. A lot of arab chicks are pretty bangable. Her included. I don’t know if good Arab pussy would ever justify the risk of getting shot by a crazy Arab dad or brother though.

    ^dont forget the sand

    Her dad looks like Michael Schiavello with hair.


  • iamphoenix says:

    he’s punching her but through his clenched teeth he’s like “just pretend it’s a gun it will make sense”

    he was probably gonna kill himself because he found out only douchebags and fat people wear addidas track suits.

    Let’s take a moment to analyze the picture.

    First, he is posing punching HER in the face. She is the boxer and she is the champion.

    She looks nervous and uncomfortable in the picture. He looks over dominant as if she is not supposed to be the center of attention. He was probably a major failure and he is living success through her. He probably tells everyone she is only successful because of him and he showed her everything yadda yadda ect…

    My theory is that she probably didn’t do the dishes that morning. Don’t fuck with the dishes and NEVER drink the last of the orange juice.
