Gatekeepers fighting other gatekeepers are the best fights to me..you never know. There is no shame on being a gatekeeper. You get good pay and usually dont get knocked out regularly like tomato cans...All boxers deserve respect. Except those that take dives and dont try to win.

True.

But they're still gatekeepers.

Like in sixth sense, they just don't know that their careers are dead and that they've become gatekeepers.

He surely isn't much to be impressed about. I could even see him losing to certain gate keepers.
