This.

The mafia is still here, more or less...

By the way, I scored both of your examples LITERALLY 12-0 to the "loser."

Here is Gravano's testimony on boxing. This is from about twenty years ago, and there is no evidence of current Cosa Nostra involvement in boxing in the US.

You think the mob isn't involved now? Are you THAT naive?

Who do you think profits the most from a BS decision, the promoters, or the bookies?


Can't figure it out? OK: When Bradley "beat" Pac, who got rich?


Now quick: Who do you think controls / owns the bookies?

Show me the evidence of mafia involvement in boxing and then come back and tell me I'm naive. Bookies make money off every sport not just boxing.


I should clarify that there is no current involvement. There was extensive involvement in the past.

they're still here my man. the americans have them judging and reffing their fights. they give the decisions to the losers (americans) each and every time. the yanks love them.

So lets get this straight. Rocky Marciano fighting Ezzard Charles twice, Jersey Joe Walcott twice, Roland La Starza, Don ****ell and Archie Moore was the best fighting the best was it?

yeah, and they made sure Primo Carnera stayed HW champ for years when he probably wouldn't even be the toughest guy on your block.

Carnera got his big ass off the floor many times in the fight with the dancing Baer.
