Re: What is the most misleading stat in boxing?
the ko percentage has been a relatively new sort of statistic to use in boxing. if it's amount of koes then yeah. but percentage was only adopted by boxrec to get a new trend. now they are splayed all over the forums as facts. completly ignore tough opponants or big hitters who never got the chance to catch there man.
personally it has to be the big 'O' on the record. because it implys being unbeatable as if you are a new tyson or something that is ready to take over the world. it inflates the rankings with untested overvalued young fighters who would benefit stiffer fights at a younger age to win the big one instead of losing at a hurdle and being thrown off the conveyor belt.
a loss should not be a backward step only an example of character.
