no offense white ppl, you guys just usually lack natural rhythm thats really important in fighting. noracist srs.

I trained in the bronx and the white fighters always looked slightly stiffer. I'd be blatantly lying if I said otherwise.
Slicker bodies and also inmune to cuts due to their unbreakable skin that rarely ever swells

Black people have many advantages in boxing

more power to the few, naturally handicaped whiteys that manage to be succesful then

There's more money for a 10 fight MMA fighter than a 20-30 fight boxer on average. Heck a guy who had 4 fights was making $10K in the UFC while Figueroa was fighting Bailey for a TITLE Eliminator for $8K.

You're a retard. Willie pep invented slickness, calzaghe had faster hands than a prime roy jones jr, marciano hit harder than tyson. The only reason so many blacks box is because they are poor as shit and have no other option.

You got nothing son. I will also destroy you at ANY athletic test, any.

Well it is obvious that Blacks are naturally more athletic then White people. Just take a look at the NBA and NFL.

Of course there are some exceptions, there are a few white athletes that can match blacks in terms of athleticsm (Steve Nash, Wlad, Martinez, Tim Tebow, Ronaldo, Messi etc)

That is an excellent thought to ponder. However I think that boxing will always be a mixture of the old and new. The beauty and artisry of the sweet science will be told and explained from father to son,uncle to nephew, mother to son or daughter and so on. Boxing will never die, because when its done right, there is no finer sport.

Boxing would build more appeal if there were more regular fights on TV.

The guy is on to something with the WWE/UFC crossover. They definitely share an audience.

It seems like every discussion on the internet eventually leads to a race war.

Beginning of thread: is boxing mainly an old man's sport?

rest of thread: blacks are superior/white power

smh

Horrific racism from a retard.
THe United States does not equal the world. Especially not today as the USA keep dropping....


The world's most WATCHED sport is not the 'NFL' its not 'THE NBA' its definitely not 'boxing'

The world's most WATCHED sport is

The Premier League
The Serie A
The La Liga
The Bundesliga


the world's richest teams are Manchester United. Real Madrid.Barcelona. Cheslea FC. Manchester City.

These are the teams, leagues, and sport that gather over 700 million people for their championship games. Go look at the make up of these teams..
