            After the Count: The death of Davey Browne
              

            After the Count: The death of Davey Browne (EPUB ebook)

            By Convery, Stephanie

            When Sydney boxer Davey Browne died in 2015 after being knocked out in the final round of a title fight that he was about to win, boxing once again came under intense public scrutiny. For journalist Stephanie Convery, the story of that fatal fight raised questions she became dete...rmined to answer: who should be held accountable when someone dies in the ring? Did the actions of the referee, the ringside doctor, the combat sports inspectors, and the trainer affect what happened that night? Is death inevitable in a sport in which the only sure way to win is to knock your opponent out? And why aren't boxers, professional and amateur, told more about the dangers of concussion and head trauma? These questions were especially compelling for one reason: at the time of Davey's death, Stephanie had been training to fight in a boxing match of her own. After the Count not only investigates the fight and the aftermath of David Browne Jr's death, but it also interrogates the culture and history of boxing, its gender dynamics, the visceral appeal of the ring and the inherent contradictions of a violent sport that refuses to face up to the consequences of that violence. It is a book that explores the grit and euphoria of combat sport as it digs deep into our collective relationship with physical power, masculinity and violence.

            Nichts war fur mich unbekannter und fremder als Afrika. Nicht im Traum ware mir die Idee gekommen, nach Afrika zu fliegen. Mein Ziel war die Selbstandigkeit. Eigentlich sollte ich in den Ruhestand gehen, aber das war und ist nichts fur mich. Ich hatte schon langere Zeit im Hinter...kopf wieder als Ernahrungsberaterin zu arbeiten. Nie hatte ich aufgehoert, mich fortzubilden. Ohne Internetprasenz geht heute gar nichts, also brauchte ich eine eigene Webseite und einen Blog. Eine Webseite braucht jeder Selbstandige, ohne geht nichts mehr. Bis dahin war alles ziemlich einfach. Bald hatte ich alles vorbereitet, doch noch war ich nicht online. Ich brauchte die Sozialen Netzwerke, mit denen tat ich mich schwer. Bis jetzt war ich ein totaler Gegner und nun sollte ich mich beugen? Ich fing an grundlich zu recherchieren, wollte wissen was mich erwarten wurde. Es war erschutternd was manche Frauen und Manner zu berichten hatten. Welche Angriffe auf Firmen stattfanden wusste ich schon, aber die Vielfalt interessierte mich. All das passte in mein Bild uber die Netzwerke. Naturlich gab es auch positive Berichte. Als ich genug gelernt hatte und gewarnt war, entschied ich mich fur die Anmeldung bei den groessten Netzwerken. Meine Homepage war nun online und mit den Netzwerken verknupft. Anfangs war alles ruhig, doch nach ein paar Wochen erhielt ich ploetzlich Freundschaftsanfragen von fremden, gut aussehenden, interessanten Mannern. Sie hatten alle angesehene Berufe, sie waren Offiziere, Geschaftsmanner, Ingenieure oder Anwalte und sie waren selbstverstandlich vermoegend. Es machte mich neugierig, ich antwortete und schon begann das Spiel. Fur mich war es eines, fur sie war es ihre tagliche Arbeit. Sie waren Betruger mit abenteuerlichen Geschichten. Sie hatten nur ein Ziel, sie wollten mein Geld. Man nennt sie Scammer, es gibt unendlich viele. In jedem Land der Welt sind sie zu finden. Ich habe die verschiedensten Storys und Typen kennengelernt bis ich das Interesse verlor. Ein Jahr na
