Default Tired of "injuries" before fight time!?

Tired of "injuries" before fight time!? Kessler injured himself, this guy doesn't want to fight at all since the Ward fight. I believe he need to retire, he's done with boxing no respect for the fans.

I will give him the benefit of the doubt. A lot of the old timers fought injured all the time.

So if heŽd stank out the joint fighting and disclosed his injury after the fact, would you be happier?

1. Not for this kind of money.
2. A loss then had a different meaning than a loss now. We are in loss averse age of boxing and its screwing up the sport.

But still managed to become WBC champion in his next fight against Froch.

Pretty good for a fighter who doesnŽt want to fight.

STFU. Kessler is a warrior. Injuries are a part of this game. Especially for fighters who have been around as long as Kessler.

You don't like injuries? Go watch team sports where they have subs. Boxing is hard. You don't play this crap.

Kessler is injured in training. Many, many fighters has cancel/postpone fights before cause of injuries. So this thread is useless and should be deleted.

I think i read on here that he was having problems judging elevation rather than horizontal distance.

Kessler said he found it hard to walk up/down stairs.

So now Boxing requires the same eye coordination and is as intense as driving?

Funny how we don't see many 70 year olds Boxing.

What is it with Boxing fans?

IDK with the coke bottle crack, but it's a sad set of circumstance anyways.

Had he been training for Bute, Kharma wouldn't have bit his ass.

There is no way Kessler would back out of this fight with a fake injury. Fighters who go through with a fight despite an injury for a payday, should keep it to themselves and not use the injury as an excuse, like Haye did. If any validity is given to the excuse, then we must feel manipulated and misled if we by tickets or PPV. Thanks to Kessler for demonstating some integrity.
