Full Version: An Open Letter to the Pro Boxing Industry

To the professional boxing industry as a whole,

I was planning to fly to the Bay Area and sit ringside for Guerrero v Maidana, stay in an upscale hotel, and party profusely all weekend. I was planning to fly to Vegas and sit near ringside for FMJ v Ortiz, stay at The Palms and get loose the way I did for FMJ v Shane The Flinch Mosley. I buy every PPV that I am near civilization for, and I subscribe to HBO and Showtime largely for the boxing. But I am finished eating shit sandwiches.

There has always been corruption in boxing. There have always been shit decisions, shit refs, thrown fights, bullshit matchmaking, prima dona stars and general chaos. But, as of this summer, the industry has lost all respect for its market. You obviously believe that we are a heard of dirty damned zombie apes.

While I resemble an ape, and I am known for playing dirty, I am no zombie and I do not enjoy eating your shit.

It has been The Summer of Shit Sandwiches, but it started with -

#1. Pac v Shane The Flinch Mosley - Admittedly, this was a faux big fight from the day it was announced but did we have to be subjected to a soft-core porn show?

#2. Alexander v Matthysse - Shit sandwich (decision). Might not have been so bad if Alexander had not received another shit sandwich decision less than a year earlier v Kotelnik and had not utterly bitched out v Tim Ramming Speed Bradley. Now we have to listen to Holyfield's lovechild spewing about how he wants to clean out the Welter Weight division?

#3. Paul The Definition(of insanity) Williams v Lara - Double shit sandwich. Lara was robbed and bent over and raped. Then we have to listen to The Definition wants SMartinez and that he doesn't need to change anything about his game. The Definition is soon to be The Vegetable unless someone saves him from himself.

#4. Sturm v Macklin - Shit sandwich lite. Just another homer decision in Germany.

#5. JMM v Whoever that worthless diving fuck was - Pre-Fixed menu shit sandwich. Even JMM was like wtf.gif !

#6. Mares v Agbeko - Club (to the groin) shit sandwich. I'd say ban the ref but GBP loves the dude so he would probably be back in the ring faster than that East LA Toilet Floater Margarito.

I've had enough. Eat shit and die.

Sincerely,

SmartyBeardo

Yeah boxing has definitely gone down the shit-hole this year no2.gif The only fights that have somewhat kept it above water would be Morales/Maidana and Berto/Ortiz. We have been suckered into big name fighters facing eachother...only to see sub par performances, smh. All we have to depend on are these last five months of the year, and hopefully they will live up to the hype.
Plah
Nice one Beardo.

i know what you mean, Beardo. i haven't been watching boxing that long compared to other people on here but it's been getting worse and worse over the years. it's just going more and more towards sports entertainment.

hindsight is 20/20. some of those bouts were highly anticipated.

who knew shane was not going to engage?

who knew pac wouldn't be able to cut the ring off on a 39 yr old shane?

matthysse knew he had to ko alexander to win in st. louis. why did he stop going to the body and started head hunting? that fight was really close on the cards. could have gone either way.

i won't argue williams/lara. the judges were suspended. nuff said.

didn't see sturm/macklin.

jmm vs the dude who laid down...i didn't have high expectations for that fight because i knew he wouldn't blow his payday on a tune up. no surprise there.

low blows and shitty ref aside...mares/agbeko was a pretty good scrap.
