    Don’t BS me. You guys are talking **** on Ennis because his clothes are “too colorful” and calling Shields “Clarontay” and referring to Wilder as “scum”. Wilder has never been arrested nor failed a drug test. Why is he scum? This sport is filled with plenty of criminals and drug cheats. To insinuate there isn’t a tinge of racism to these comments is both equally insulting and hilarious. Let’s just be intellectually honest here.

    I’m white. For those of you who don’t know. Someone who speaks with a prejudice isn’t hard to spot. Hell many of these comments don’t even try to disguise it.

    :facepalm: Saying Ennis' wardrobe tonight made me want to vomit has nothing to do with what color he is. Someone (Wilder) who continually talks about wanting to kill someone in the ring is a piece of filth, again nothing to do with racism. Grow up cupcake/

    Good shooting, CCA deniers make me want to projectile vomit almost as much as poor CCA and garish ring attire does. They're even worse than glass chin deniers

    FTR, CCA ie. Colour Clash Awareness is a thing and if a fighter displays poor CCA and rocks hideously garish ring attire they get **** on for it, regardless of who they are. And likewise they get praised for displaying good CCA.

    Gvozdyk 'TBE' CCA and ring attire

    Danny ''The Six-toed Lego Hair Freak'' Garcia unquestionably the worst

    I'm no fan of Twink and I have nothing against Ennis who seems like a decent enough chap and a serious talent

    But if you turn up on fight night looking like a parrot on LCD making me feel giddy and nauseous as hell you're getting **** on every single time and likewise if you turn up displaying quality CCA and ring attire you get praised for it :deal:

    I'm a closeted boujee critic of people with terrible CCA as well. But I try to keep that side of me secret.:sisi1 But I'm your number 1 supporter when it comes to calling guys out whose clothes make us both hork up in our mouths a little.

    :lol: The general level of CCA among fighters is substandard and rather depressing. Same goes for the general level of their choices in ring walk music.

    People think I'm joking when I say garish ring attire makes me feel nauseous. Obviously it's a running joke on here and we members of CCA Patrol can be guilty of hyperbole on occasion. But make no mistake about it especially poor and garish ring attire has made my stomach turn on numerous occasions.

    Wtf? Disliking three fighters, each for different reasons, equates to a "tinge of racism" when all three happen to be African-American? You, uh, do know that black people are not a monolith, right? And that disliking Ennis, Wilder and Shields in no way forms a pattern in your little tea leaves or makes for some reliable predictor of whether I'm going to like a given other black fighter, right?

    Ennis is a hype job.

    Wilder is scum because, for instance, on multiple occasions he saw fit to publicly claim he wants a dead body on his record...in a climate where pro boxers are dropping like flies and you just can't be saying idiot things like that without being roasted for it (as he rightfully has been).

    Shields is a hype job like Ennis but without his skills ...and she's a brute power-shot winging inaccurate bully like Wilder, except without his devastating one-shot power. And she's a crass outspoken and undeservedly self-aggrandizing troll on Twitter and in every interview she has done.

    I mildly root against Ennis.

    I usually root against Wilder. (but was a big fan of his in the amateurs).

    I loathe Shields.

    Three different flavors of dislike. Again, not a monolith. No pattern here. Showtime happened to pair two black fighters in the co-main events who already weren't that popular in mismatches that weren't going to win over any hearts or minds...so blame the network if you must. (and they are the same ones crowing about Wilder as the baddest man in history, so yeah...fuck Showtime).

    CCA is a long established thing on this forum that has nothing to do with race.

    I called her Clarontay in a callback to SHIELDS HERSELF COMPARING HERSELF TO WILDER EARLIER ON THE BROADCAST, and the parallels many have drawn in their undefeated rises without either knowing any form fundamentals including how to throw textbook punches properly.

    Anything else? Because I just picked apart literally your whole body of evidence of imaginary "undisguised racism". Oops, you're indisposed I see. Tell me when you return.

    For all the women's boxing skeptics:

    Napoleon-Espinoza vs. Cederroos was the FOTN by far, and while that's a pretty low bar given the poor quality of both Ennis vs. Eyubov and Shields vs. Habazin, it was a pretty damn good fight, period.

    Oh no - @Diddy is going to swoop in (whenever his sentence is served) and say that we just think so because it was the match with the lowest net melanin on the card!

    It's laughable when Shields compares herself to Loma and saying she made 3 weight divisions the fastest in history. You can't compare someone who fights 2 minute rounds against extremely shallow competition wth p4p killers in the mens pro's. As long as women don't fight 12x 3 minute rounds that can't even talk about being on the same level. Women fighters who compete above 135 regardless if it's Boxing, Kickboxng, or MMA will always lack competition. Clarissa probably walks around 170lbs.+.That's a BBW in my book. Most women are much smaller than Shields, especially athletic ones.

    How is Ennis a hype job? He is 5'10, has good reach, handspeed, and is only 22 years old. He'll only continue to get better. He is clearly talented, and to the extent that guys are simply refusing to fight him. Ranked guys. Showtime had to increase the purse amount available for his opponent significantly, just to get the midget tonight to fight him.

    For the record that was an extremely ****ty stoppage by Larry Hazzard. There must have been a lot of money riding on an Ennis stoppage in round 4, because Eubov or whatever his name is, wasn't staggered, or hurt at all the last two rounds, and was actually very game, and landing shots, fighting back.

    Ennis has some of the fastest hands I've ever seen. Up there with RJJ or SRL.
