You can call a boxer cowardly, though...by the standards of boxing, just like you can call a sprinter slow, by the standards of sprinting.

I take your point, I just didn't want to start all that up again, when SleazeNation branded Calzaghe a coward the other day. The difference between Audley and somone like Enzo Mac is that even though Enzo was bricking it against Haye (in most people's opinion) he still had a go, Harrison just turns into a *****cat and tries to survive.

I still don't like that word when applied to boxers, its too personal, abusive and absolute. I don't think you can be a relative coward like you can be relatively slow.

I though this was settled the other day - un-brave.

Well...there are cowardly career soldiers...so...

cowardice like guts is relative, like beauty...etc.

You can be an ugly miss universe contestant...compared to the others...

...etc.

you can be an unfit marathon runner...compared to the others...

But in those situations would you use the words "ugly" and "unfit"? They arn't words that lend themselves to be tempered, most people use them as absolutes. You either are or you arn't.

Overcautious to a fault, that's the basic problem.
