Legs are not useless a lot of punching power comes from them.

Big legs are very helpfull. Most of the punching power comes from the legs and the abs/low-back regions.

Boxing below your level (underperforming) and getting robbed. Both just make me feel dizzy and sick when the decision is announced.

Definitely body shots.

That, and losing your consistency.

Agreed, I prefer to get hit on the face any day of the week(although obviously i prefer not to get hit). It really is ****ing amazing how some pros carry on walking through 10 20 body shots a round, i can't

I'll agree with bodyshots. A good bodyshot is many times worse than a good hit to the head.

thats not necessarily true. i've KO'd 9 of my 17 opponents and have met several hard punching amatuers. anyway, i hate roadwork and chasing after a guy who just jabs and runs. i hate it. oh, and i hate headgear. i find it annoying and useless. it prevents cuts, but i dont believe it protects anything else.
