How a Bullet Ended a Haitian-American Boxing Rivalry
Stan “Iron Man” Stanisclasse, Florida’s former Golden Gloves champ, liked knocking out opponents, including fellow Floridian and second-generation Haitian Darrell Telisme. The two boxers became friendly … until Telisme, during a November night out, goaded his rival into a gloveless fight and took quite a beating. He reportedly admitted to police that jealousy drove him to shoot and kill Stanisclasse later that night. Since then, Telisme has pleaded not guilty, and now he’ll face the fight of his life: standing trial for murder.
