Re: Chavez Jr., Lee Bout at Sun Bowl Cancelled

I don't understand this decision. The Sun Bowl has hosted events such as football games, monster truck events, soccer matches, and yes boxing. There was one televised on nationwide TV just three days ago, at UTEP's Don Haskins Center without incidents. Even a soccer match was held three years ago at the Sun Bowl between the Mexican teams Juarez Indios and San Luis at the time when the violence at the other side of the border was at its peak and the match went on without a single incident. If this doesn't prove what its already a fact that El Paso is the safest city in the nation then I don't know what is. I am just wondering what was the basis to for UT officials to assess this event as "dangerous". The reason given to cancel this event is completely unfounded and it makes everyone wonder what is the real reason behind this decision......... Just an opinion. It is sad that our community was cheated out of a high profile event that would have put El Paso on the map. I hope they reconsider
