i did find amusement in angel garcia's original comments at the first press conference...i didn't think he was disrespectful about it. he didn't call judah a bum or any of that...he just stated fact. i get it...judah was pissed. he reacted and took it to the streets so to speak. that whole ordeal has now blown out of proportion and it's looking highly likely something will go down at tomorrows fight no matter who wins. that's that...no undoing it. god forbid something bad happens tomorrow...and ppl get hurt...it's a black eye for the sport.

now we have malignaggi/broner talking shit to each other...and squaring up and all of that. some of what was said was comical...but i'm seeing a trend here that i think needs to stop real soon. with everyone trying to out-do everyone...and pencil necks with cameras calling themselves jouranalist eggin them on...this is going to take a wrong turn across the board. boxing imo is a classy sport. there's nothing wrong with a little shit talk to sell the fight but in this day and age with social media and everyone with a camera trying to be a reporter....shit is gonna be hitting the fan on the regular. boxing is out of the mainstream already...but encouraging...or keeping this shit alive by giving videos hits and what not is only going to further damage boxings' image.

promoters need to take notice and maybe start including clauses in contracts that limit some of the shit for damage control. not all publicity is good publicity. i know floyd feels like if they're talking about him...good or bad...it's good because it means money for him. he may be the exception. i don't believe that's going to be the case for everyone else. and while hbo was quick to jump on broners jock and sell him as the next floyd mayweather because he's trying to use the same blue print...this kid hasn't accomplished a fraction of what floyd has. maybe al haymon needs to reel some of these guys in and let them earn their way to the top so to speak.

the sports image is very important when u consider it takes money from sponsors to make a lot of this shit happen.

am i alone on this view? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/huh.gif)

Yep, it's a necessary evil. IMO a little trash talk or a little barb here or there to your opponent is entertaining. You gon fight any way. Da fuck you supposed to do, just train and look in the camera and praise your opponent. Boring!! That whole leave it in the ring shit is played out. This aint Dempsey's day. It's a different time and you either adapt to it or get left in the past. Some people aren't trash talkers like an Andre ward, that's cool. I respect his skills all the same, but it's no coincidence that the trash talkers are getting the money and the big fights
