    Sport of champions?
    Sport?
    Controlled violence?
    Organised thuggery?

    In my opinion, organised thuggery. Not a sport
    On a given day or given circumstance, you think you have a limit.
    And you then go for this limit and you touch this limit and you think "Ok, this is the limit".
    As soon as you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further.
    With your mind power, your determination, your instinct and the experience as well, you can fly very high.

    Boxing is almost too elemental to be called a sport.

    If you attend boxing you will see violence, thuggery, bravery, daring, sadism, masochism, stupidity, intelligence, artistry, sportsmanship, and several other things.

    I used to love it, but less so these days.

    The purest form of sport there is. True physical competition.

    Yes Skillian, but then so is arm-wrestling.

    I think bouts where what we are able to observe that which we admire in boxing have become so rare as to almost preclude diligent fan-dom.

    That is sad, for exactly the reason you state.

    the prob with boxing these days is too many fighters are just in it for the money
    (as with a lot of sports figures here in the states, in all sports)

    but theres still some fighters with some heart & courage
    theyre the ones who make it worth watching
    you just have to admire some of these guys&#39; determination
    coincidentally theyre the guys who are fighting for hardly any money,

    anyone who watched the three fights between Ward and Gatti saw
    two guys who just dont know the word "quit"

    that is a rarity in sports these days sadly....
    I am just a worthless liar. I am just an imbecile.
    I will only complicate you. Trust in me and fall as well.
    I will find a center in you. I will chew it up and leave.
    I will work to elevate you just enough to bring you down.

    More like a sport controlled by thuggery.
