Howard Dobson emotional following close defeat

Shane Cameron’s close cruiserweight defeat to Danny Green was too much for TV3’s Howard Dobson who broke down during an interview with Radio Live Sport.

Chatting to Ian Smith and Nathan Rarere following the fight, Dobson was fighting back tears when discussing Cameron and the atmosphere in the dressing room after the loss.

“He’s just a staggering chap…. he’s done New Zealand proud,” Dobson told Smith and Rarere.

“He wants to carry on, right now he just needs to recover…. But he’ll be back, he’ll be back.

“His father said he let nobody down and they love him …… and it’s just staggering what happened.”

    I was quite surprised at that gutless, week & pathetic crying display from Howard, for God’s sake the fight was an open contest & one should never assume the result.
    I can understand someone crying if a family member died with cancer or some such thing but not for a sporting event & in my mind both Howard & Shane are finished.
