Another example of boxing being fucking retarded

Okay boys and girls. Gather around the fire and let me show you another story about boxing being the dumbest sport in the universe. This is a story with all the drama of a soap opera, with earnest challengers being denied, existing champions ducking fights, people being sued, fighters getting paid to not fight, purses being argued, and even a Champion Emeritus coming out of nowhere to fuck shit up!

No, Champion Emeritus is not a spell from Harry Potter, although this retarded story is almost as bad as being put under the cruciatus curse. If up until today you haven’t been able to put your finger on what’s wrong with boxing, take 10 minutes and read this article. Then when educated boxing fans ask you why MMA is better than boxing all you have to say is “Maskaev vs Peter” and you’ll look very smart indeed.

    Also, the clinch and the standing 8.

    Who’s Kelly Pavlik again?

    that whole article seems about the same level of stupidity that the UFC has gotten up to from time to time. Has any major boxing sanctioning org put it’s fucking welterweight belt up on the shelf for 6 freaking months so that the champ and challenger can compete in a fucking reality show?

    just checking

    Speaking of, didn’t that hole in Forrest’s head remind you of something.

    Come on now. A great fight is a great fight period. Last weekends fights were awesome. This weekends will be as well. Every sport goes through rough patches but anyone absolutly hating boxing blows my mind. MMA is still in its infant stages and already starting to struggle putting together great fights. I love the sport of MMA but no way can I say its the end all be all of combat sports.

    Did you watch the Pavlik vs Taylor fight? Just wondering

    I’m gonna have to check it out apparently. You’ll never be able to convince me that boxing isn’t rotten to the core, but I’m very ready to agree that good fights happen from time to time. It’s just too bad there’s so much crap going on outside the ring that messes everything up all the time

    Sometimes you get a certain person with so much power you just can’t seem to boot him. Example Don King or President Bush. Doesn’t mean the sport or the country as a whole is rotten. Just the times. Boxing needs to go to work for sure but I really believe their doing what it takes to get it turned around.

    By the way I was screaming as loud for Pavlik as I was Couture. Great is great period.

    What I scream when I watch boxing matches now is “KNEE! KNEE!”

    then i go get my meds

    Hell what do I know I was screaming when Italy won the World Cup as well.

    The bottom line is boxing sells. I’ve never went to work or heard of someone at work saying, ‘did you see that armbar this weekend? Or how about that triangle. It was so devastating!’ Even when Mir broke Silvia’s arm only real mma fans talked about it that Monday.
