great list by almost everyone..here's mine

1. When fighters know about an injury before a fight and choose to still fight and then uses it as an escape goat for their performance (IMG:style_emoticons/default/rolleyes_anim.gif)

2. Promoters sucking on fighters nuts until the fighters move on.

3. Pactards

4. Fighters who fight for a belt and immediately drop it not long after they win it.

5. All of these bullshit new belt organizations

6. Larry Merchant

7. Some of Mayweather's excuses

8. Pacman's Team

9. Freddie Roach

10. HBO commentators (except Kellerman, Lampley, Foreman, Steward, Tarver and Roy Jones)

13. When fighters who don't come to a fight in shape and out of weight.

14. Homecooked Decision wins (IMG:style_emoticons/default/thumbsdown_anim.gif)

I hate fighters who lick their lips every time they puke out a sentence during televised interviews.

I hate boxers who promise to punish a dude or knock him out, only to (a.) pot-shot their way to a boring decision, or (b.) get humiliated by their opponent while returning little to no offensive firepower in return.

I hate fighters who act like gangsters and come to the ring with some lame rap act like Nelly, and then thank Jesus Christ after the fight was over.

I hate fighters who say they have to talk to their team when asked who they'd like to fight next.

I hate fans who label unproven prospects as GOATS, while dismissing a fighter who has just lost as a bum or never-was.

I hate Atlas, Grey, Tessitore, Lampley, and Kellerman. In that order.

More to come later.

Wow!!! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/thumbsup_anim.gif)

There are seriously so many good ones people posted. I am rolling reading these lists, and pretty much all of them are true.

Here are a few more.

Seeing fighters hot bitches in the crowd, and knowing they are only with them cause they are a boxer. Haha

When someone from the announcing team interviews a fighters cornerman DURING the fight.

Not having instant replay to determine head butts, cuts, low blows, etc.

Certain fighters that get away with wearing their cup way up high to protect their body for an unfair advantage.

Judging in general is and has always been flawed for several reasons.

Women in the FRONT ROW who spend more time chatting then actually watching the fights.

it's really taking away from the sport. the undefeated record is meaning more than quality of opposition, how often they fight and their performance.

i remember during the NBA finals some kid had floor seats and was texting during the game. i'll never know what's up with people that spend thousands of dollars on tickets for something just to text.

1. Fighters with no personality

2. People still having the balls to mention Shane Mosley as a potential opponent (Pacquiao was the last to milk that cow, and the milk was sour...leave it alone already)

3. Fighters with no power

4. When cuts end a fight prematurely (doesn't matter if it's a PPV fight or a low-budget fight)

5. Jerry Olaya's interpretations in between rounds (he sums up the hell outta those sentences)

6. Ray Torres's interpretations between heated rounds when he refuses to repeat profanity (c'mon man, I've heard "hijo de puta" a million times in that corner, and you haven't repeated any of it, lol).

7. It kills me how frantic Nacio Beristain is between rounds

8. When Larry Merchant feels out of the loop and tries to shut down the convo between the other two commentators who are talking about something that he knows nothing of. (Lol)

9. Harold Lederman's scorecards, smh. (The only time I somewhat follow it is when I've had oe too many beers and lost track of the fight)

10. That fat dude with the ninja turtle headband on in Pacquiao's corner

11. Larry Merchant's jokes/analogies

12. Not being able to ignore Bernard Hopkins's over-the-top commentary in the crowd during fights. (sit down man)
