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 crap 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.
