    Default Boxing

    There was a match Saturday night to determine the Heavyweight Champion of the World.
    Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder.

    Did you see it?

    Did you like it?

    Who is your favorite boxer of all time?

    Has MMA over taken boxing?

    Saw the highlights, a dominating performance by Fury.
    Greatest heavyweight of all time and probably my favorite boxer, Ali. IMO there has ever been a heavyweight that could match his speed and skill in his prime.

    Clearly you haven't been to many college women's volleyball games. Had I known about those hard bodied girls in those tight shorts when I was in college, I would have been at every game. (I suppose that thought is another example of "toxic masculinity").

    Peresonally, I prefer women who actually LIKE men.

    Toxic masculinity is a term made up by militant feminists and insecure adult males that are still dependent on their parents.

    Who's your favorite flag football player of all time?

    Boxing is a great sport. Sadly, not a lot of people truly understand the intricacies of a prize fight. But this they can understand - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bj3xL9zoY1M

    Muhammed Ali; The GREATEST of ALL-TIME!


    Ali-Frazier; Greatest series of fights , I saw all three!

    The greatest call;
    "Down goes Frazier, Down goes Frazier!
    Cowell doing the Foreman Frazier fight.

    The best "boxer" I saw was Roy Jones Jr.
    The "Golden Boy"Oscar De La Hoya was excellent!
    Sugar Ray Leonard was awesome to watch.
    Lennox Lewis never got his due.
    Larry Holmes was a beast.
    "IRON" Mike Tyson won the title at 20 years old!
    Evander Holyfield was 1 tuff S.O.B.!
    George Foreman (awesome guy)

    Sonny Liston scared us as kids!
    I listened to the Cassius Clay vs Sonny Liston fight on my Mom & Dads Motorola console stereo!
    CC shocked the world!

    Lots of guys before my time, these guys caught my attention when I followed boxing.
    Jerry Quarry, Chuck Wepner, Oscar Bonavena, Ernie Shavers, Ken Norton, The Spinks Bros,


    I've never watched a UFC fight.

    Would be fun to slam a few with him#

    the other night before the fight, they honored Lennox Lewis, Holyfield and Tyson. Lewis literally towered over the other two ex champions. the two fighters Sat night were as tall as some NBA players
