Topic - Terrell Gausha
U.S. Olympic boxer Terrell Gausha is so disgusted by the acquittal of George Zimmerman that he's vowed never to wear Old Glory again.
Rau'shee Warren has no regrets. He waited through a decade in amateur boxing and a U.S.-record three Olympics to fight for a gold medal, only to lose his first fights in Athens, Beijing and London.
Gausha added that he refuses to represent a "nation with so much racism and hatred."
"It was definitely a disappointment for everybody, but we can't go back and change anything," said Gausha, who dramatically stopped his first London opponent. "I really don't have any complaints about amateur boxing. I had a lot of success, and I got to see the world. I feel like I left everything in the ring for USA Boxing, and now I'm ready for what comes next."
