    My favorite ring walk? The one where the guy walks to the ****ing ring so he can get on with the fight, rather than pretend he's a circus bear.

    I really like the way this thread has developed. It really restores my faith in present-day hardcore boxing fans. You guys have made my day.

    Personally, I like Dempsey climbing through the ropes with a towel wrapped around his neck and walking across the ring to shake Firpo's hand. No fuss no muss, just an old-style display of respect and good sportsmanship toward his opponent.

    Came out to no music, instead just noise blasted at deafening volume

    Lennox vs Rahman II
    Cotto vs Martinez: no music, no dancing. They turned the lights out in MSG and Cotto was in the ring when they turned them back on.

    What did you think of Ezzard Charles and his P4P top 10 strut? No need for special gimmicks when you’re that good.

    It was as if everyone knew this would be his last ring walk; the whiff of melancholy mixed with a celebration of all he had done to the sport was almost surreal as he made the walk.
