Default What will Boxer A do after he smashes Boxer B?

There seems to be plenty of these kind of threads popping up. What is this with these idiotic threads? Do boxing fans who make these statements think that they are some kind of superstar boxers? When a boxer is making these kind of outragious statements, it is accepted way to hype up the fight. When it is done to on message boards it comes across as very stupid.

I think boxer A should stop taking easy defenses against guys like Boxer B and give Boxer C a shot, he's been ducking him long enough.

It always depend on how critics, haters or nuthuggers react after that smashing thing happens. Everyone is entitled to speculate or making statements.

I think he's saying that posters are trying make difficult fights sound like formalities? Like 'Who should Kelly Pavlik fight after he beats Taylor', it makes the original oppostion sound easy to beat and upsets their fans.

Its a mild form of trolling....

"
Trolls can be existing members of a community that rarely post and often contribute no useful information to the thread, but instead make argumentative posts in an attempt to discredit another person, concentrating almost exclusively on facts irrelevant to the point of the conversation, with the intent of provoking a reaction from others. The key element under attack by a troll is known only to the troll.
A troll is a person who approaches a board with the specific intention of stirring things up, either as a goal in and of itself or as a means of attacking the board perhaps motivated by opposition to the ethos of the board. For example, a neo-Nazi approaching a Jewish forum with the intention of attacking the members, purely because the neo-Nazi knows the forum to contain Jewish members, will be considered a troll.

A troll's main goal is usually to arouse anger and frustration among the message board's other participants, and will write whatever it takes to achieve this end. One popular trolling strategy is the practice of Winning by Losing. While the victim is trying to put forward solid and convincing facts to prove his position, the troll's only goal is to infuriate its prey. The troll takes (what it knows to be) a badly flawed, wholly illogical argument, and then vigorously defends it while mocking and insulting its prey. The troll looks like a complete fool, but this is all part of the plan. The victim becomes noticeably angry by trying to repeatedly explain the flaws of the troll's argument. Provoking this anger was the troll's one and only goal from the very beginning."
