Re: When Did Heavyweight Boxing Become Modern?
About 10 years ago. Modern medicine and training have produced the boxing superathlete, clearly superior to all predecessors in skill and ability. You look at these so-called "champions" of yesteryear and can't help but guffaw - why, George Foreman couldn't even win a local amateur bodybuilding contest! Larry Holmes was practically bird-chested!
Yet these are the ectomorphs so-called "experts" hold up as great. Ridiculous.
