    With all the misogyny going on in other KT thread i found it really eye opening how a lot of you just dismiss womens boxing but especially KT who i really like watching ....There are some ,well a lot of male fighters that i would not watch if they were outside my window Frankie Gavin being one of them...

    So for all you Alf Garnetts out there who would you rather watch?

    K T is one dimensional repeating the same things without any thought /boxing brain whatsoever . Her level of opposition is absolutely rubbish. End thread. Have some respect for boxing

    Frankie Gavin everyday of the week.

    Women’s boxing just like football, is the equivalent standard of watching 14 year old male amateurs. It’s a biological fact- in terms of strength and speed.

    As boxing is watched by a 98% male audience, women’s boxing has no female viewer base to speak of sustain it!!

    Numerous promoters have trialled it over the years and they have all made losses and canned it!!

    The free market always wins when it comes to special quotas or virtue signalling moves like female boxing.

    It’s going to crash and burn just like every other female boxing adventure, that’s nothing against Katie Taylor.

    That’s the a result of what the boxing fans want to watch. Boxing fans want to watch the best male pros, not some special needs variation for the women.

    Are you a fan of under 15s schoolboys amateur boxing by any chance? If you are you must understand that’s a very niche market just like women’s boxing is.

    What would be a better fight on the undercard to Whyte Parker?

    Lejarraga - Gavin

    Or

    Taylor v whoever she’s fighting?

    I can’t believe people are even debating this.

    This is quite an obviously loaded question, one without any real credence to sensible discourse. You've taken someone most consider the most exciting to watch in her field and someone who most consider dreadful to watch in his. Plus, you've not even listed who they would be fighting. The main complaint against women's boxing is that the talent pool is minimal and thus the fights suffer as a result.

    As Scissors states, I'd also take Lejarraga-Gavin over Taylor-anyone else.

    Wrong....

    Its aimed more towards people who just despise womens boxing to put it in perspective....And as you have just stated you consider KT exciting in her field ...

    I just really wanted to gauge if people would really rather watch a shi7house man boxing than KT...

    I could have picked from lots of fighters....Lejarraga v Gavin will be more one sided than a ----/----

    I didn't say that, I said most consider her that.

    Either way, I don't think the question has merit logically. They're not shadow boxing, so unless an opponent is named then it's not a useful question.

    For the record, I'm happy to state I don't particularly like women's boxing. Although I will say I dislike it beyond the mere fact that women are doing it, which is why some will dislike. I suppose that's who you're trying to weed out with this topic.

    You ain’t achieving anything with this thread mate

    In two years time women’s boxing will no longer be promoted at all by any major promoters. We return to the natural order.

    This is another era of women’s boxing promotion because the current era is too thick, to ask the previous era why they failed. (Hint; it’s rubbish and loses you money)


    Serious question- who would rather take home from the bar? The 10/10 in looks based on your preference...
    or the fat, ugly feminist with blue hair and a 2/10 looks?

    It’s called personal choice. And we already know what the male boxing fans want.

    Less than 15% of British women identify as a feminist

    This is spot on. I don’t dislike it because it’s women, I dislike it because it’s generally poor. I do watch and take an interest in stuff like women’s Wimbledon or athletics.

    I am in a happy marriage with 3 young kids.

    How is your success with women going? Let me guess you get the odd Vicky on a friday night, a little chubby but still ok after a few pints?

    Top Tip: Good Women dont like cucks, male feminists or men who suck up to them

    If you're a white, Hetrosexual young man these days you dont even know what women or how dating is nowadays. When you date a women these days it's similar to having a date with another Man . Their's no differences, women have lost their femninity, so comparing your era and the current one is crazy
