Didn't say he was, but you make him come across as a loser. Family is a big part of a lot of peoples lives. Kostya Tszyu was a big, big family man and you would know that as you are a fan of his. Mayweather has kids, Cotto has a kid, many fighters have kids and lives. Like I said, boxing and sports should be a part of someones lives, but not be the only thing. I just think you try make it sound like they should hold off on all these things if they want to be a boxer. We aren't in the 1920's anymore. Hearing you go on that no fighter should drink, have children.
You are entitled to your opinion, but I just think they can be dedicated to their sport and still have a family, just seems like you are living a bit behind. Like I said, anything you do whether it's boxing, basketball, football, soccer or just your every day job should require dedication but I don't think it should be the most important thing in your life, I just think you can have a life as well, have a drink, have kids and so on.
I think boxers should hold off from drugs and booze while boxing..Family and kids I have no problem with..I actually think family is a huge thing for a boxer..If the support is positive,it can help A LOT..Those were not my opinions,those were pure facts!!!Read up and find out if ya don't believe me..Shit,that's how I found out..The Ageless Warrior,A Flame of Pure Fire,and Joe Louis--My Life..I didn't make that shit up and I'm saying anyone should follow it..Like I said,I have a gf and wouldn't not trade her for boxing even if my trainer told me to..Hell no!!I was telling you exactly how Louis,Dempsey,and Archie lived to be the best!!!The fuckin best and still the best..
I stopped doing drugs and booze when I started boxing..It was hard but I'd do anything to be the best I can(aside from losing my girl or not having kids)..I never did extreme drugs like heroin or crack but I knew people who did..One of my best friends died from a heroin overdose..I smoked a shit load of weed and did some other stuff though..I'll never go back..
