Default Re: Did Flintoff degrade pro boxing?

No, it just showed how much skill it actually takes to be a boxer, you may see a boring a fight every now and again, but very few tha thave you cringing and laughing at the same time

when McGuigan, the leech, was shouting at ringside, I jokingly said "he's only shouting because he cares" to which my grandmother replied "if he cared he might have taught flintoff how to ****ing box" she then wen on to nickname flintoff "slap happy"

lol to be fair, most people didn't think of it as Andrew Flintoff having a pro fight, more like Andrew Flintoff having an exhibition against a guy who clearly did not want to hit him back (and when he did....)

no, if he has a twenty fight career of that fight then it would be bad, as it is it should not affect how less than casual fans view the sport.
also it was hillarious, and fair play to him, he was aggressive for all but half a round
