How can anyone take the sport seriously when the commentators say about this fight:
"Kessler has sent shock waves through the boxing world tonight"..seriously?? By beating a 37 year old washed up nobody??
"McGee is a boxing legend"...really?? Honestly I never heard of him until I saw the video on You tube.
Its like if they say it in an excited and husky voice then it must be an exciting fight..pathetic.
Give me Larry Merchant and HBO any day...
Give the British a break, they once ruled the seas, so they hype whoever they have - or whoever beats them - like bosses of the world. And when the Hayes are in a rude awakening, they find a Welsh or a Scot great to embrace as their own, even if they treated them like ****s before.
