Screw him.
On August 2, 2012 Gausha lost to India’s Vijender Singh in a pre-quarterfinal bout, thus getting out of Olympics.

That should work out real good for ya Terrell.

“Every incident, good or bad, teaches you something. I also learnt a few things. I realised who are my true friends and who are the hangers on. I realised that difference because all my good friends formed a ring of support around me,” Vijender said.

Wake up Terell.
You are running with the wrong crowd.
