Man, you guys JUST DONT KNOW how hard Im laughing right now!
Franchize, that list was damn near priceless! Flazi, seriously man, the "expert" in the room, usually knows the least, but he wouldn't know how clueless he was unless somebody called him out...sorta reminds me of Allmenj...sigh...well, yall the rest.
MG, Im with you all the way on being home alone watching a fight, or at least having my brother here. There are VERY FEW people that I watch boxing with, and the regulars here who come for fun, already know the drill.
I dont know about you all, but I watch fights at home, RARELY do I go to bars and watch them anymore, let alone someone else's house. The last fight I went out to watch, was Hopkins/RJJ II...do you really need a reason why? LOL
Check out this post from a while back...

I know this young guy that lives next to me, who grew up in Florida and claims that he went to "Roy Jones Boxing Academy" a while back. He went out of his way to make sure that he repeated it at least 5 more times during several conversations that we had, pertaining to boxing.
I remember a few months ago, he was at my house and I was watching Mayweather/Hatton...then came the 10th round TKO. Michael Buffer announces that Mayweather won by TKO victory, then the guy asked me, "Ay man, what is a TKO"? Really man?! For a guy that attended "Roy Jones Boxing Academy", you would think he knew what a TKO was.
Then yesterday, he stopped by the house, and of course, he asked me did I see the fight (Mayweather/Ortiz). I said yes and also mentioned that I recorded it, so we watched it. Before it even came on, he said, "Aw man, I cant wait to see what Roy Jones did to Artiz". (yes, he said Roy Jones and Artiz). He grinded my gears with questions and statements such as:
"Aw man, bruh got 50 Cent in there wit 'em"!
"I heard Floyd knocked him down like 3 times".
"Why is the referee counting for him? I thought when they get knocked down, the fight is supposed to be over."
"I wanted Mayweather to lose, he's the best fighter out there, but Im one of his haters" (he was smiling when he said this shit).
I was through! Everything else that he said was inaudible from that point on, because I couldn't believe my ears. Mind you, these are questions and comments from somebody who attended "Roy Jones Boxing Academy", so you be the judge.
Name any and every question/comment from somebody that watched a fight with you...and almost made you point them to the door. Have at it! Oh yeah...somebody look up that "Roy Jones Boxing Academy" for me and let me know. I know Roy Jones Sr. had a gym, but thats all I know.
