Tiger Eye 13

Not sure if this is the right place to ask this questio and apologize if its not.

You know the Sick KO posting made me think about the old Tiger Eye bunch. Does anybody know what happened to them? Like I said they were based in LA but spent a lot of time in the east coast gyms and Miami. But I think they were from all over. A few of the names I remember are Keith McGurn or maybe McIrn. Matt Ressopi or something like that. Then Mac Bugan or maybe Bugano? The last one is the one I mentioned in that Sick KO posting. This group ran through all the big gyms in the US and the best of em the 13 worked as sparring partners for some of the top pros. I know Bugan worked with some of the best cause I saw him in some big camps in the 80ís and 90ís. Saw him knock a famous champís brother through the ropes sparring one night. Anybody know something? Was up last night thinkin about it. Funny how things can jog my pea brain after years and I canít get em out. Thanks guys. Sam

Something else I just thought of last night. All the Tiger Eye guys I saw had tats of a tiger on one shoulder. The 13 had a tat of a boxing glove on the other one numbered 1 to 13. Those were the bad ones. I remember helpin tape Mac Bugan’s hands once and he had a big scar on one looked like from a knife. Thanks. Sam

I know the tiger eye 13 guys you talked about. I seen them fight all over since the 1980 s. A couple still into 2000 s. Keith McGurn, Matt and the rest. The guy you call Mac Bugan his real name is Scott. I heard Mac was his nickname. So was MTK. Only tiger eye guys called him those names I think. One of the toughest I ever seen. Ever period. Some the best at what they did. Only worked with top pros. Classy to. I seen Scott knock a top Cuban fighter out the ring at MSG. Beat him like his daddy. Heard about that gym fight you seen. Seen him do worse once in Detroit like something out a Steven Segal movie. Nice quiet gentleman ya wanna meet just with on off switch. Another story another day. McGurn same but his switch always on. Matt a joker but real tough. I heard same as you about the tats. Only the baddest got the 13 in the gloves. LA via Mulberry Street you got that right bud. The darlings of Ravenite. Real pros. Some answers for ya Sam so get some sleep.

We call him SB or Boss or Sir. He was my team leader. I'm former military. After worked as a contractor in the big sandbox. Came to work executive protection with SB in 2011. When I got hired everybody on teams but him was x-military or x-gubment. Scared us he wasn't. His gym work was something to see. Never saw a speed bag that small work that way. Never saw a 150lb heavy bag bounce like that. Never saw anybody dance with a rope that way. Sparring humbled us. Never thought I'd be afraid of a 50 year old guy either. Team exercises got him respect. As good as any with a weapon. Field work made us believers. In two years with SB the team had three violent incidents. Threats were put down in seconds. Principals never were in danger. All by the book. Took care of his team like a daddy. Last to eat. Last to sleep. Never expected anything he wouldn't do. Taught lessons about shadows I never heard before. Nobody I'd rather have at my 3-6-9-12. A real operator.

I just retired. Things getting too crazy. Done living the life. Travelin and gonna meet up with SB here in a few for a drink. Doubt I'll tell him about this. Low key as he is it piss him off. Just gonna be his wing man tonight. Guy gets more tail than any of us. Funny as hell.

Sides hurt from laughing last night with SB. Didn't talk about this. Did tell him heard some old Chicago LE friends were looking to buy him beers. Hope OK. Talking old times reminded forgot to clear rumors I read on here. Team was was involved in a fatal shoot when I first joined. That rumors true. SB got winged by a pellet below his vest a month or two after. Thats true. Last holidays guys jumped a lady on our team trying to jack one of our GMCs. SB got to her first. Saved her life. One bad guy got a broken neck. Other got knocked cold. There ya go. Sounds like some of you saw him fight 20 years ago. Must have been something. C
