Anyone that talks schit during sparring is ghetto? I'm willing to bet that 90% of the posters here don't box or ever have because if some of you did, you'd realize this is often the norm. Attempts to make any derogatory comments at Floyd aside, this is clearly no different than another famous sparring session of James Toney and Danny Green.
Yeah trash talking doesn't occur in all major sports, only that "ghetto ass" Floyd does it, right? Ok, got it.
Btw, that looked like Baldomir

Seems you missed his point. He is correct. There was nothing "ghetto" about Floyd doing what every other boxer does in their sparring sessions, Manny included. It is very common for people to get a psychological advantage by punching cleanly, and trying to convince your opponent that you can do it with so much ease, that you can broadcast without fear while doing so.
Thats all he addressed. You took it somewhere else.
You guys are histerical. I wasnt aware this would offend you so much.
Only my opinion, but it would seem a big waste of time for the #1 pfp boxer to shit talk with some bum. What does that prove? I dont have a problem with shit talk as a rule, but only find it worthwhle in any sense when it comes against someone who can actually play at a similar level. Example.... If Larry Fitzgerald is talking shit to Champ Bailey its meaningful, but If Larry Fitzgerald is talking shit for no reason to a 3rd string bum then its "ghetto". And again, thats only my opinion, but for the most part I find shit talking to be a waste of time and energy. I could care less how common place it actually is during sparring, that doesnt automatically mean its "right" or "good" for the sport. Until someone can find me some proof that shit talking makes you a better boxer then Floyd is acting ghetto imo, and it comes off as very unbecoming for the best boxer in the world.
