So 50 cent thinks Boxing should adapt the theatrics of say the WWE to help sell events. I'm trying to see the big picture here as a fan of both sport (except the PG Era of WWE) but I.. I.. I.. boxing is fine the way it is. Maybe guys can use a bit of character to help sell there selves to the public, maybe stage performances can be given in between or during ring walks, maybe, but we don't need anything more extra than that.

Your Thoughts

I think we boxers are just to nice in this era..

Smiling and laughing after you just got knocked out,..tapping gloves after every other round,.. whispering sweet nothings during the stare at press conferences...

I can go on but what the sport needs is more bad guy personalities. Someone for the people to hate and be made to respect. Im kinda liking Keith Therman,.. rough around the edges, smart, decent pop,.. and calls everyone out..

WWE has the perfect combination of Good vs. Bad. And thats what boxing needs..

Tell me folkes, if Floyed and Canelo take place who would be looked at as the good guy? Even though he hasnt proved half of what FLoyed has in the sport?

Or better yet, if kirkland would have kept himself in line and remained knocking guys out left and right, he coulda been the throwback tyson type guy.. who wouldnt buy a Trout Kirkland match? Or Canelo? Idk..

So yea, in a way i kinda agree wit 50

TRUUUU! Pacquiao just sued Mayweather for defamation of character and if you notice Floyd isnt even as entertaining with the trash talk as he used to be as a result SMFH unbelievable. This is a contact sport! Trash is to be talked!

Guys like Floyd, Broner, Angel Garcia, Zab Judah, Peter Quillin, Bradley, Uncle Roger... they make this fight game entertaining.
