Back in the day boxers FOUGHT, put those arms up, bob and weave followed by action. I even seen people call it ART nowadays lol. Seriously, will we start seeing trans***ual crowds at the fights with purses and shit 30 years from now? Tell me now because I don't want to find myself in a fight surrounded by a scent of sweat mixed with Elizabeth Garden make up around me.
Is this a new fruitcake generation? It's disgraceful for real. There's still a few of us left but the more the years pass the softer males get to a point where it's just embarrassing. Men were tough back then, what happened?
agree with you on any title fight being stopped because the guy "could get hurt" . if he IS hurt, yes stop the damn fight if he has been clocked too many times. but shit like Calzaghe vs Manfredo being stopped when he didnt even get hit, Manuel Charr fight being stopped on a cut in a heavyweight title fight before anyone is allowed to even work on it between rounds. shit like that hurts boxing.
