Well the stage is set? How did you like the judges (too old in my opinion and I have never been sure about Julie Ledderman).

The ref, Byrd is just okay with me. Seems like a set up!

A great interview by Floyd. Was a little surprised to see him at the game but I guess everyone needs a break. And I knew he was going to say Tupac! This is the Floyd I rather hear and read about. I guess he is maturing... good job!

All sports have some form of corruption, it's just Boxing's is the only one that doesn't have a punishment system in place. The crooks get off free in Boxing, in other sports they'll be judged and sentenced accordingly


True Chi...very true, there's corruption everywhere. But I think boxing is corrupt on so many levels, in ways other sports are not and never were. It's in the fabric of the sport. An old timer once told me that though the "mob" (in the sense of organized crime bosses, etc.) has changed/evolved...boxing is still "mob" owned/run. And that mob has a strangle-hold on the sport and too much money invested to let go easily.

Really? Damn, you just dropped some knowledge on me...but I totally agree, boxing needs a makeover badly. It's the only sport where the criminals just breeze thru and if they are caught they get off with a slap on the wrist
