Unhappy We've All Had To Deal With Them...

Hey hey,

In the pub the other day with my friend and we started talking sports, I'm the boxing man and my mate is Rugby. We just waffled on having a laugh and then 'HE' showed up, that bloke in the pub who acts like he knows bloody everything.

My mate left and I was stuck with this old fart, he started going on about sports (he knows everything don't you know) claiming facts I've never heard of and quoting bollocks I don't care about. Then his smugness went to boxing, and he was talking crap... like Marvin Hagler is greatest boxer ever, he was adament about it.

Don't get me wrong Hagler is probably top five middleweight ever, but his refusal to listen to my counters like he never moved weights like Hearns, Duran and Leonard. Or that he fought a lot more naturally smaller men and he retired after losing perhaps badly against Leonard.

I was able to sneak out as he was boring the **** out of someone else, but my question to you is this...

WHAT IS THE STUPIDEST ARGUMENT YOU'VE HAD ABOUT BOXING?

I was working nights at Morrisons and boxing came up in the conversation. No one else knew the first thing about it but my boss chimed in "who do you reckon is the best boxer of all time then?" I said "either Robinson or Greb probably. You?" (Stupid question). He says "Mike Tyson".

I didn't bother saying anything else.

I was in the pub the other night

and this guy wouldn't listen to me telling him that Hagler was the best boxer ever

He kept talking about people going up and down weightclasses

like Floyd Mayweather Junior is doing now

and Manny Pacquiao

He was a stupid ****

But thankfully he left the pub

ive had people claim pacman is the best boxer ever , ofcourse these are fans of the man and not the sport

ive also had a fair few people explain to me that mike tyson is the best heavyweight ever and no one could live with a prime tyson

i just stay quiet because id just come off looking like a smart arse and causing an argument and to be honest when im in the pub i just wanna drink and have a bit of banter not argue with a clueless man

We used to have this prick in the pub years ago during the early 90's when Eubank, Benn and Watson were in the mix that always used to say..."Nevermind these...I remember when boxing was boxing..."...

I've had a few people tell me Calzaghe beat B-Hop, I assured them B-Hop schooled Calzaghe and was robbed.

I think Calzaghe took that fight by a round, if it had gone the other way there would not have been much debate...

The stupidest argument I've ever had in boxing was trying to convince this other guy that my fav fighter is better than their fav fighter while both of us are drinking in a bar. I should know better.

I have one friend who tries to talk boxing, its painful.

''That Chilean lad (Pacquiao) was good against that Mexican(Cotto) last night wasnt he?''

''You know that Amir Khan guy? And the way you tell me he should probably fight better fighters? He should fight that Swedish guy with the tatoo's that Calzaghe did''.

Some idiots on the general forum denouncing Calzaghe as the GOAT.

Havent really had any stupid conversations with anyone about boxing, except someone telling me Hatton was quicker than Mosley.
