I have heard people call Floyd Mayweather, "Floyd Meriwether" or "Floyd Mayflower!" LOL! But they sort of come back to reality when I say, "Who are you talking about?" They say, "I mean that fighter nobody likes!"

What pisses me off is anytime someone arrives at a party during one of the undercard fights on a PPV, checks out the screen and casually asks, "When's the real fight start?"

I always say, "You mean the main event? This is a real fight going on right now."

you know what grinds my gears? everytime we buy a ppv fight we invite the whole family, and what pisses my off is that they come when the main event has already started. not only that, they love to say hi and have a chat!!!

as far as dumb comments go, i have heard: BANG... BANG...BANG BANG!!! TRY AND STOP IT! BANG HERE I COME

This burns me the fuck up. This is the main reason why I have to watch the fight at home because if its not the main event they want to turn the TV to a basketball game or something else til the main events come up. I'm like dumbass half of the time the better fights are on the undercard.

Hahahaha!!! They used to mess Floyd's name up bad! People hardly remember his name nowawdays...like you said, they mostly refer to him as the "fighter that nobody likes". Lol!

Hahahaha!!! That shit does it for me every time. Hate it! Thats why I always tell the harcore boxing fans to come to my house at 9pm and I text everybody else to show up around 10:30ish.

Yeah I hear ya...the protocol during the main event is to come in, fix a plate, get a drink, and STFU! Simple as that...talk to me between rounds. I will give you 60 secs to get it out, but after that...resume the position of STFU and sit down.

Hell yeah...if I pay for the fight, then Im watchin' ALLLLL of the fights on the card. I get your drift, thats why I always order fights at home instead of going to bars or somebody else's house.

My Gear Grinder:

You're at a house with 20 people to watch boxing. 5 are good fight fans, The other 15 are just there for a party and they talk non-stop during the whole card, with their 3-4 little fucking kids running around and the wives/girlfriends sitting in the same room yakking. Not about the fight. NO! They sit there swapping dinner and cookie recipes, what the kids are doing in school, the little shit kids have their hands in the cheese dip, and when you ask them to be quit, it works.... for about 30 seconds.

Then it starts all over again. That's what kills going to parties. Families have no consideration for the reason why people are there in the first place. To watch the fights.

Hahahahaha!!! Dont you just hate those "wind-up toy" kids that keep running around...and its worse when they keep running up to you! Man, I've had several Margaritas & coke and bacardis sitting between my feet, that got knocked over because little ones were always are running up to me, smh. Yeah, all of those sidebar conversations kill me! I hate being at somebody's house, and the man of the house acts like he doesn't even know how to work the remote. Thats when Im ready to load up the jab and execute!

I remember I used to always have a BBQ on a Sunday afternoon when the fights were on & during Lewis vs Tyson I had about 20 people over. Most knew jack shit about boxing & those that did believed Tyson was gonna win. I cracked the shits & told everyone to fuck off punched a few hot ones & went to my bedroom & watched the fight. After every round I went outside & asked in a really condescending manner how is Mike doing?

Without fail.

My pet peeve migrated to UFC events, but it used to be present at every boxing show. The tough guys watching two trained fighters on TV, and claiming that they could kick the shit out of both of them. Sure buddy.
