    ...okay, I was going to let that be that, but...no, I can't leave well enough alone here.

    ARE YOU ****ING KIDDING ME?

    Somebody can dominate on sheer athleticism while not exhibiting a lick of pure boxing skill or being the least bit aesthetically pleasing to watch. All three of those are separate things. You can be slick & skilled and pleasing to watch and dominant, or you can be just one of those things, or you can be two. Shields is one: dominant - because of physicality. Nothing else.

    You arguing that her style is a pleasure to watch just because she pitches shutouts is ludicrous, and makes no sense. It makes even less sense that you then suggest that she is displaying some high level of "skill" that she could lower to make herself entertaining.

    You are SO DUMB. You're, like, allergic to nuance.

    If you think Shields is unlikable and repugnant you should check out her fans on YT.

    And :risas3: at them comparing Shields' achievement to Loma's. As if they're remotely comparable lol

    And acting like moving down in weight beating up on leprechauns and munchkins>>going up beating much bigger, heavier, longer, stronger and harder punchers than you

    It takes an unbearably smug despicable tone deaf creep to root for a unbearably smug despicable tone deaf creep evidently. Her matches are borderline torture to watch and I actually like women's boxing. She's sloppy as hell and has insanely poor technique, if she were a male you'd be on the RBR bashing her for her lack of skills, that oh so frequently do with the vast majority of aggressive fighters, you hypocrite. Her skill level COULD NOT BE ANY LOWER, so that's not really possible is it?

    She's giving a boxing lesson to no hopers and now puny fighters two divisions smaller than her. If she wants to impress us, try fighting Savannah Marshall, who schooled her in the amateurs and like her is an actual Super Middleweight that unlike her fights at Super Middleweight.

    She isn't even giving her low-level victims "boxing lessons". She's giving them sloppy low-accuracy combination power shot winging lessons.

    That fight was honestly better than Ennis vs. Eyubov in the co-featured men's bout.

    Like, a lot better.

    Who said I root for her? I was mentioning how much you all seem to root against her . I couldn’t care less about women’s boxing. Wake me up when someone can actually challenge her.

    being there are fifty one women at that weight in the world, becoming a womans boxing titlist is by far the easiest path to success in any sport.

    Yes, most of us root against sloppy unskilled weight bullies with zero ring IQ's. Male or female. White, black, or Chinese.

    We also root against their annoying shills, and don't welcome them in our community. Don't let the door hit your ignorant ass on the way out (unless you duck and take it across your upper back & nape, because then you'll know how Shields' opponents feel when she's doing most of her "best work"...)

    If you don't care.... then why do you feel it necessary to open your ****ing mouth and accuse everyone on this thread who dislikes a painfully unlikable repellent person that most normal rational fair minded sentient beings find horrid... of being a racist, you ****ing idiot?

    Bootleg D can come across as likeable at times and I used to actually quite like him. However, personality-wise Shields is just thoroughly repugnant and unlikable, unbearably so in fact. Both have truly grotesque fanbases though (extra heavy emphasis on grotesque). Well at least on YT they are.
