The bodybuilding.com forums are far more scientific, and well-informed, as most forums are. Unfortunately, there's next to no boxing discussion there. As a boxing fan, I'm always magnetically drawn back here, and routinely disappointed by the litany of **** posts.
I've seen some fantastic roundtables on bodybuilding.com and there was one in particular on Facebook that included Eric Helms & Alan Aragon (they're releasing some peer-reviewed material together soon, actually). Eric Helms' ability to cite literature from the top of his head, especially when it comes to protein is just ridiculous.
