Yes, boxers should eat good (and well). They need their vitamins and such. If they’re making a weight limit, of course they need to restrict their diet accordingly (no cake for desert, etc.) But in general, the thinking on what’s good for athletes shifts every so often and while some think it’s progress and ‘advancements,’ I’d like to challenge that and see if there’s discussions o be had. For instance: Ray Robinson ate steak as his prefight meal and had the chef/cook drain the ‘cow blood’ (juice) into a glass and drink it. Likewise, Duran feasted on steak regularly. They turned out pretty good. Is there a school of thought that their diet limited their accomplishments in a major way? Do we really think a Ray Robinson would have been that much greater (he’s generally regarded as the greatest pound-for-pound fighter of all time) if he had eaten something ‘better’?
