Full Version: The new "cool" things to do in boxing

So I know this topic may be a little weird, but news of JCC Jr possibly disowning his dad kinda got me annoyed. There are some trends that take place in boxing, that a lot of fighters seem to follow suit with, that are absolutely annoying. Here are some of my pet peeves:

1. Fighters calling out Floyd immediately after their first quality win.

2. Fighters changing long time trainers and blaming them for the reason they've been getting their ass whooped.

3. Hometown amateur trainers who build up inner city youth not knowing when to say "I've taken you as far as I can, time to take you to a real trainer." (Cshel knows this burns me up lol)

4. Fighters taking the Floyd route post Cotto and saying "I just wanna give the fans what they wanna see" after taking a bunch of shots in a fight.

5. Fighters talking about injuries they had in training camp, that were never mentioned until AFTER they got their ass whooped.

Fighters talking trash in the ring after the fight is over
Fighters saying I'm going to give the fans what they wanted see after the fight is over and say something stupid like "Hey Pops, brush my hair"

Please Lord whatever you do, please do not allow this crap to become a trend.

Fighters trying to use the shoulder roll like May
Fighters father's becoming the star attraction
Fighters saying they have the tools to beat May
Fighters trying be rappers (I blame Floyd and Roy Jones for this)
Young fighters having a Prima Donna fucking attitude
Fighters jumping weight classes versus cleaning out the division
Fighters wanting to be on the pound for pound list after one good fight.

Oh the agony! laugh.gif

We've been in SEVERAL round-by-round threads on a Saturday night, clowning some of these hometown trainers.

Yes! That stupid chicken wing rendition of the shoulder roll, has GOT to be stopped.

Fighters with annoying dads has trump all of them for me (I'm talking to you berto, Danny, chavez, guerrero). It's your sons moment to shine and your just trying to steal some attention.

One that just eats me up (and you ALL have seen me lose my shit over this), and it's NOTHING new about this, but...

Fighters getting hurt by a punch and REFUSING to take a knee. Instead, they get stopped, and then fish for sympathy from the fans, saying that they're warriors and blah blah blah. Man STFU! The number one rule when getting hurt in boxing, is to either hold or take a knee.

No worries though...we'll just have a few more drooling stutter-boxes to add to the boxing world, when they're careers are over. Hell, Ali's in bad shape nowadays, but at least we freakin' remember him. Wouldn't life suck, if you're a retired B-side gatekeeper that no one remembers? no2.gif

1. there's no problem with being confident and wanting to beat/be the best in my eyes.

2. there's always things we can't see. relationships run their course. i can't judge. it happens.

3. hometown amateur trainers who build up certain fighters are sometimes better than the more well known "real" trainers. don't sleep.

4. i agree. laugh.gif

5. you can't reveal these things prior...unless of course you want to give your opponent ammunition to beat you. smart thing is to pull out the fight if the injury is any parts of serious. but when the date/money is on the table...and these guys are starving....it's hard to do.

the most annoying trend to me...

calling face foward/no defense displays of brawling fight of the year candidates and what the fans want to see. no it's not. that shit is horrible.

Got one

So called "boxing journalists" (I'm looking at you ESPN) writing ridiculous boxing articles and mythical matches that make NO sense believing they actually know a thing about the sport.

Like the Canelo vs Chavez Sr article they had up the other day, Seriously? Smh

Dude I saw that shit and nearly broke my laptop! Who the fuck has Saul faced to be considered in a match up with Chavez? I mean really. That shit pissed me off to no end. Then they had Floyd matched up with SRR. I am like really? Fucking seriously.

was it the same ass clown who said floyd had to fight ward to seal his legacy?

Sneak dissing, we've seen it, just say the name if you aint a coward or let it be known who it's directed at

And people hating on Broner and Band Camp, yeah I said it ....BAND CAMP!!! laugh.gif

Boxing journalists or so called journalists, most people reporting on the sport today have an agenda, seems like one side is pushing for this fighter or promoter and the other side is doing for another fighter or promoter. It seems like a reality show where alliances have been made

My biggest trend is the lack of fundamentals in some of these new school fighters, IDK who to blame for that, the amateur coaches or the pro trainers but it seems like a lot of basic things are being left out of these fighters' arsenal

Why do they do these things..the messed up part is us, the fans know who they referring to, just call them out laugh.gif

My biggest problem which is why I brought up the lack of basic fundamentals is the lack of body punching and proper footwork we see today in the sport. I agree with you that we see a lack of fundamentals in other areas as well but these fighters today have crap footwork for the most part and they head hunt too damn much

The shot that Thurman put Chaves down with was a body shot, that shot was actually available to him all night but I give props for him recognizing it when he did and ending the night for Chaves. When a fighter is hurt it pays dividends to go to the well and then pop back upstairs. Now fighters just want to do their best RJJ or Mayweather Jr impersonation and land headshots and strike poses

Some of the things that make this sport so great historically speaking are becoming a lost art, I used to look at Teddy Atlas and dismiss him when he said it but now it's definitely coming to light more and more with these new age fighters, including your boy One time lol

Journalist AND fans, alike, calling people who fight for a living "cowards" or "punks", knowing DAYUM well, should they see those said "cowards" and "punks" up close, they'd be like mimes on Venice Beach.

Make match ups involving brawlers in the ring to draw ratings=Cool from a network marketing perspective.

Ignore or diminish the slick elusive stick and move boxer style, because he is boring=annoying because it shows bias and favoritism in promoting an agenda for the sluggers, just for higher ratings.
