Tomato can

Real meaning: see bum

Internet meaning: see gatekeeper

This is one of my biggest bugbears around boxing. According to the internet definition 99% of fighters are bums. Yet these so called 'bums' pr 'tomato cans' are generally the bread and butter of the sport.

This term is often used on ESB and it generally shows ignorance and a lack of respect from casual fans who mainly get their boxing wisdom from the back pages of the Sun newspaper.

"He a G"

Real meaning??

Internet meaning: Boxer in question is a proper dickhead with a vile personality who generally acts like a cunt, and the poster who called him "G" has poor english skills.



"He's a proper character he is"

Real meaning: Someone who is funny, charismatic, tells interesting stories and is fun to be around.

Internet meaning: Someone who slaps, bites, spits, has convictions for public order offences, acts like a cunt, and when punished for said behavior proceeds to complain and make threats in a horrendous accent.
