Default Dumbest things you've heard from people about boxing?

I'll start us off.

"I read that Lennox Lewis is returning to fight Joe Calzaghe"

"When is Calzaghe gonna fight Hatton."

"Pacquiao will batter Hatton, obviously. He just beat Oscar De La Hoya who was Pound for Pound NUMBER ONE!"

Pacquiao breaking the record for titles in 9 weight classes. They should at least put an asterik on it if they wanna claim it.

People don't understand that boxing has evolved.

A Joe Louis, with today's training, drugs and diet could be a very good CW.

Haye-Harrison is definitely going 12 rounds!
Or maybe my mate who doesn't follow the sport suggesting khan and haye should fight!

Also there is an absurd tendency in British society to think of valuev as ugly and having lost his duel with haye

If that were true, SNV would be pulling down MASSIVE POONAGE for an ugly loser.

Dutch newspaper: "Evander Holyfield regained the World Heavyweight title by beating South Africa's Frans Botha in round 8 last weekend" (can't recall the exact words used, but it was something like this)

I believe it stems from bitter jealousy of the seamless way snv integrated himself in British high society. Even prince phillip , a notorious offender of foreigners and a general sceptic of everything ever, was won over by sugars dashing wit and flawless charm
