    "Boxing is like Jazz. The better it is, the less people appreciate it"-Geroge Foreman
    I think Emile Griffth and Rigo really suit it to a tee.

    Somewhat true, still subjective. Sophisticated operators can be entertaining to most too.

    Mayweather and/or Leonard.

    I'm not sure I agree with the quote either.

    Oh of course- but to the average fan most safety first tactician are perceived as boring because they haven’t had the “Red pill” so to speak and can’t understand how good the performance is in front of them due to a lack of understanding.

    I mean yeah- all the casuals just say he “runs” and “cuddles” and that Connor was gonna KO him early lol.

    I think personally that 95% of the people who buy his PPVs are hoping he losses.

    Luis Manuel Rodriguez. Also, Billy Graham.

    Guys like Johnny Nelson etc don't count as they are purely negative.
