    Horrible. Wilder and his **** riders will be elated though.

    You play other sports.

    You do NOT play boxing.

    Here you can see they type of tragedy that can quite easily occur.

    This is why I have UTTER contempt for people like Oscar and Canelo; they cheat at every possible level and sell us this "greatness" charade.

    Warning to Horn

    This upsets me I was a fan of Zerafa. Now the tables have turned. I now want Horn to beat Zerafa

    I would be surprised if it weren't from a heart condition.

    You're bloody obsessed with Wilder and there you are in the other thread calling me obsessed.

    What has sparring death got to do with Wilder

    Wasn't it fury who recently removed padding from his gloves in SPARRING?

    You got this part right.

    But how the hell do you go from that to this?

    "cheating at every possible level"? WTF are you talking about?

    From a body shot and in sparring? Sounds like he might have had some pre-existing undiagnosed condition. Either way, that's tragic.

    RIP and sincerest condolences to his loved ones.

    Yep, sounds like he shouldn't have been in that ring. Freak accident could mean anything, but I too think he was likely injured before.

    Juicing

    Weight draining

    Hydration clauses

    Judges on the payrolls

    WBC protection

    Hand wrapping concerns

    Political protection

    Positive drug test being swept under the table with a very small 'ban' and no financial penalty involved.

    Need I go on?
