Re: Many people consider Sugar Ray Robinson the GOAT...
If you want to go on believing boxing is the only sport which has not advanced in the last 60 years because it is 'special', then be my guest.
It is so obvious I'm not even going to elaborate further, we don't even need to look at the causes.
You are classic boxing fans, so you think boxing is somehow different, whatever the reasons, pretty much all sports have progressed over that period of time.
I am aware you will come out with counter-arguments, I don't care though. You can argue pretty much any ridiculous thing (flying spaghetti monster for example). The fact is advancements across the board in sports in substancial evidence. All the subject rubbish Pep-perts come out with is not. Debate over.
