First, why train somewhere that carrying a hatchet is required to protect yourself against bears? Furthermore, what would your sparring partner have to do to throw said hatchet at him in a fit of rage?
Were they running through the woods sparring with each other? Just a very bizarre story.
This cracked me up though:
Slayton told the deputies Bell had become angry with him during a training
session in the woods and threw a hatchet the boxer was carrying for protection
against bears. Slayton fled, dodging large rocks Bell threw at him,
Whoever is fighting O'Neil Bell should realize that the throwing of the large rocks will definitely make his right cross a LOT stronger.
