sad watching all the chicken littles and sheeple walk off the cliff one by one.

boxing is fine. good fights/fighters....it all happens in waves. sitting around craving the days of old....u miss all that is going on right in front of ur eyes.

it's like the song says....."these-are-the-good-times...."


Boxing is fine?!

Boxing is going the way of the dodo, is where it's going.



esp in the US where we have exactly 1 native fighter (who is in his mid 30s) who can fill a venue.

I think HBO has been trying to hype up new fighters and hand them crowns to back up the hype - Jermain Taylor, Chad Dawson, even Bojado are GLARING examples.

HBO needs to build their fighters by putting them in tough, cream rises to top. stars will make themselves. HBO I hope is serious about putting on a prospect series like shobox

shobox develops them....hbo steals them.

look at andre ward as the prime example. they sign him out of the olympics...and try and dictate who he should fight and all that. he gets dropped...they question him and his ability. ward and his ppl opted out of his hbo contract and chose to fly under the radar. best thing they could have ever done because he was able to pick and choose his opponents so that he could develop properly at his own pace. now, he's ready for the big time. it doesn't always work that way...but hbo doesn't know how to build champions. they should leave that to the professionals and just stick to putting on the best available fights like showtime does.
