    After seeing the damage that’s brought upon to Adonis Stevenson, it still irks me how people can just call any fighter, even ones who hold a title, a bum when these guys put their health and lives on the line.

    It's easy to call people bums from behind a keyboard. It's one of the things I dislike about a lot of the threads on here. Someone is either a bum or an ATG. It does little to stimulate discussion of fighters if the views are so extreme.

    What does the term have to do with Stevenson and the predicament is in? Who ever called Stevenson a bum (other than trolls). I'm not seeing the connection here.

    No they don’t, they do it for monetary gain. A vast majority of fighters, even the ones that are idolised, couldn’t give two ****s about fans. That being said anybody who steps in the ring deserves respect

    Ali called Henry Cooper a bum

    'Prior to the fight, Ali called Cooper "a tramp, a bum, and a cripple not worth training for."

    So Henry dropped Ali on his bum for calling him a bum



    After the fight Ali said Cooper wasn't a bum anymore

    'Immediately after the fight, Ali retracted the abuses he had directed at Cooper before the fight and declared: "Cooper's not a bum any more. I underestimated him. He's the toughest fighter I ever met and the first to really drop me.He's a real fighter."

    There's a moral to this story, you ******* bum!

    Tomato can, journeyman, cab driver are fine. I think its more the lingo. A bum is a terrible derogatory term to call a fighter considering a lot of these guys are more likely to have serious brain health problems or end up in the street.
