How is it a violation of the rules to do something that may expose yourself to more punishment in a game where the main aim is to knock the other person out?

Why do refs allow some boxers to violate the rules, while taking a point from others of the same damned thing?!

It's common sense. And a safety issue as well. I KNOW it's boxing, but they do have rules to PROTECT the fighters..

I guess you're part of that "Trash talking isn't disrespectful, it' COOL!" generation.

Damn, do you have to be a hater and an asshole at all times?

My point is, if it isn't in the rulebook (at least I think it isn't), why do refs enforce it like it is?

Just seems like a no-brainer. Who the **** wants fighters to talk shit in the ring anyways...

If a fighter wants to use words in the ring, then I see no problem - he does so at his own risk.

The majority of boxers are of very low IQ, and could perhaps be toppled by psychobabble.

Furthermore, it allows effective taunting.

Ali talked in the ring. Of course, he talked anywhere and everywhere so I guess it didn't matter.

i would be against it if it was a known safety hazzard, but i am in totall agreement of it being entertaining.....

if they can use their mouth to break the oppenent concetration then it may be insuring the own safety. some boxer punch with mouth open so im guessing it wouldent matter so much if they exchanged words instead of fists.

i saw roy jones and david tolesco go through a viscous verbal war which lead to roy deliberately corner himself and effectively counter telsco while show boating.

ali was also a talker in the ring and it may have helped his career and his style of winning fights.

if there was some proof that getting punched with your mouth open was life threatening then i would be against it. but from what i have seen, im am assuming that its nothing more then what it is.... trash talk.
