Good thread mate. In fact people just like that disrespect others and not just boxers for no reason. And about boxers, one can talk only when he knows how it is to take a punch.

All glass this and all that are bullshit.. totally..

Classic section is a lot, lot better tho.
and so is the Boxing Training/Amateur Boxing ..

I have seen more worse international forums than this.. But dosent mean ESB is anywhere close to being properly maintained.

Cretain types of people have always disrespected boxers more than other athletes and it's a shame. The reason? It's easy.

- you're only as good as your last fight (no 82 game season like the NBA)
- all the politics in boxing set up a culture of complaining
- in football if you blow a play it might cause your team a touchdown or something, in boxing you screw up and you're KTFO'd

I could name a bunch of examples, but you get the point. Boxing is an individual sport, so the fighter gets all the glory and all the blame at the same time.

The internet culture has made it way worse b/c you have these internet tough guys who read a little boxrec, watch some youtube videos and wanna call themselves boxing historians/experts.

I cant stand people who disrespect professional boxers. They obviously dont know how hard it is to make it as a pro and how hard the sport is.

I don't get it. There is a line between being critical of a fighter or the choices that fighter makes and disrespecting a fighter. I do my best to stay on the right side of the line.

The anonymity of the internet age has led to people typing things in forums that they wouldn't say in real life. I'm pretty confident that most of the posters you are referring to would not spout the same non-sense if they were live at a fight card. Real fans would identify them.

Yes, an internet team formed to defend the honor of Joe Cal, disparage every American fighter, and team up on posters with differing opinions. It is probably the lamest thing I have ever encountered.

A bunch of allegedly grown men using fake names who still don't have the balls to stand on their own merits.

Because most people here have never Boxed a round in their lives. It's easier to log on to a forum and pass judgement.

I despise the majority of armchair fans, because they still refuse to respect men and women who put their lives on the line.

They talk about this and that but they could never find the courage to step inside. They won't even go to a boxing gym. They don't know what it takes. Simple as that.

I was hoping that we could get someone to explain themselves on why all the hate, but us real fans know the truth.

... If they had, they would have a totally different perspective.
