He's right. It should be legalized full stop. A boxer could hypothetically go out on the batter the night before a fight, turn up at the fight ****ed up and get seriously injured and he's not breaking any rules. At the same time, a fighter that has a few puffs before his training camp gets a ban.

There's something not right there. Personally, I don't think any boxer who tests positive for any drug that's not performance enhancing should face disciplinary action.

You could argue it is performance enhancing due to the fighter getting a buzz without piling on thousands of calories that he would through alcohol.

It's a pretty weak argument to be fair. It's up to the fighters to have the discipline not to have unhealthy habits.

Could you imagine it though.

Sky Sports Adam Smith ''Lets go down to changing rooms with Ed Robinson he's with the challenger....'' Ed's in smoke filled room and is struggling to see the fighter..

Ed ''Thanks *cough cough!* Adam, *Wheeze* i'm with ... How you feeling moments before your first world title fight?''.

Boxer ''Errrr ''

Imagine how many boxers would be drugged up 24/7 if it were to be legalized. Think about it.

I've thought about and your point of view makes no sense. Weed doesn't make you lose weight so your point is null and void. You'd swear it curbed your appetite, it's has the opposite effect. Posting a video of Arnie smoking a joint proves what exactly?

When he had cravings as all men do to go out on the lash and unwind he instead just got wasted on gear in his house. No calories init.

It shouldn't ever be legal in boxing for obvious reasons.

Honestly the whole point of sport is that it is pure and boxers are rolemodels like it or not! Weed is a drug end of and has no place in boxing!
