    What are you talking about?? I never suggested that I was "appalled" at Rocky hitting the man. I never even claimed that Rocky's response was inappropriate--just that it might not have been legally justified, depending upon facts that none of us know. You're imagining things and making stuff up. I couldn't care less about what went down between Rocky and the guy he knocked out but I happen to know a little but about self-defense law, so I figured I would contribute to the discussion. Maybe you just need to reread my posts more carefully and see if you disagree with anything that I've actually written? I usually enjoy reading your posts on boxing but it seems like you have some kind of personal emotional stake in this topic that's preventing you from having a rational discussion on it. I hope you haven't had any traumatic experiences or anything, but either way you're jumping to conclusions based on your loaded generalizations about "these thugs," "life in the ghetto," "thugs just like this guy," etc. You describe them as "a bunch of thugs" and claim "that was a typical American hood with typical thugs hanging out and acting like fools," even though you know next to nothing about the situation or any of the people involved. Maybe this type of talk (and your posts about the ridiculous knockout game hype) passes for street-smart wisdom to some people around here, but to me it mostly just sounds full of generalizations and fear. Sorry if me pointing that out offends you, but I have black friends who have been in very bad situations because people assumed they were dangerous thugs and got scared.

    David Carrier is an evolutionary biologist at the University of Utah. He co authored a paper that argued that the human fist evolved for fighting and his team were caught off guard by the controversy it created.

    Paul Malignaggi boxing commentator and analyst and two time world champ was known for fast hands but also brittle hands and because of this was regarded as feather fisted. But it seems Paul was quite the bar room fighter.
    Paul said " I actually took out several different people in street fights ''. He added I've never really boxed when i got into street fights. When i was in a lot of night clubs every night i would end up in my share of fights. I would lead with hooks and power shots because you're not going to miss them. Nobody is going to slip a power shot with speed u can throw it if you're a pro fighter. I haven't been in the circle in a long time. I have not been in a street fight in several yrs. Even when i was . I never thought about boxing. I never sat back on the jab. I came out swinging. I was whipping hooks at people. I don't need to box u. I know i can beat the **** out of u. "
    This show like Rocky Lockridge what a former world champion boxer can do in a real street fight and u u would be ill advised to pick a fight with them. If Paul was light hitting imagine what Julian Jackson would be like ?

    Sometimes violence is the ONLY answer. Here's my story, I had a 73 Pontiac Catalina ( this is 1986) power steering had broken on it , so when I pulled into this local convenience store( same type of knuckle heads hanging out in front of it) I pulled in to be easy to pull the car out. As I entered the store I heard one of the clowns say " Hey mother f***** you cant park your **** like that up here. I realized very quickly I was out numbered at least about 8 to 1, so I was polite and said I'll be just a minute, power steering is broke, cant park the car in a regular parking spot and said sorry. As I was exiting the store the one with the biggest mouth was blocking the driver side door . His boys was waiting for him to swing on me. ( and in that situation if you go down everyone their is going to stomp you) but being from the streets I knew the situation and being in Karate and Boxing for yrs at that time I could defend myself competently. He faked at me, and I blasted him with a left hook, dropped bad ass on the spot ( yes he did crack his skull when he fell, but that wasn't my problem) his boys were so shocked it enabled me to get in my car and drive away. The lesson being #1 , their that old saying in the streets the one that hits 1st, usually hits the last #2, don't start a fight, because you never know what the other person is capable of. For yrs after, I became a mini legend on the streets, And the story became so exaggerated it makes me laugh until this day. ( one story is I knocked out all 8) If people only knew How terrified I was when his partners were coming up behind me lol.
