Not at all, I didn't take it personally...there are some fights...that don't need to be watched or shown ever again as far as I'm concerned. Some will say well you can watch Holmes vs Ali to signify the passing of the torch. Not for me. I mean, I'll probably never watch Barrera vs Pacquiao I again...but I had to at one time. Sorry if it seemed like I was snapping.

would you watch other fights where boxers got hurt or died again like Kim vs Mancini

Now i am not saying i want to watch these fights as i wish they never happened but i'm not being sick but i want to see these fights if you understand me.

One of the men gave his absouloute all in something he liked doing. He lost his life doing something he loved, and its terrible. But i feel i need to watch these fights to pay my respect to the fallen warriors.

I think it would be a disservice to the fighters in question, say, for example, Benn and McClellan if we were to review great fighters but put a bar or taboo on viewing their fight.
Greatness and glory can sometimes be mixed with horror and tragedy in this sport.

People are quick to watch Manila and millions of fights that probably caused chronic brain damage.
People are quick to watch Jerry Quarry fights.

So, ultimately, I disagree with the unwritten rule TBooze refers too.

Don't think I'll ever bear to watch Ali-Holmes.

I've tried, but it was too one-sided and unpleasant to watch. There are thousands of fights I want to see before I watch that.

That fight was pretty close at the time of the stoppage. It wasn't the whitewash some people make it out to be.

I wont watch Delahoya and Pac,because this was not the real Oscar he looked as shot as Ali did against Holmes. My son wanted to watch it today(he dont like Oscar) I told him no! Then he wanted to watch Hearns and Duran(hes fuc*ing with me Now! We saw that though, But for the longest time I couldnt watch that one either.
