Boxing Clever?

Recommended Posts

I can find an Ali, a La Motta and even a Naseem Hamed thread, but no general boxing one. It seems a fairly dangerous activity to me, as evidenced by the appearance of Panto Frank on the 1989 DL as he was about to face Tyson.

I'll get to my point, shall I? I guess even boxing is less dangerous than shooting.

A terrible end to a life for sure but, I do have to broach the subject. Does the term "Brain dead" really apply to Boxers?

Just wondering.

I sometimes think boxing press conferences are a lot more entertaining than the actual fights, and at least they're not on at 4 in the morning at £20 a pop. Doubtful that Hatton will win, but I'm sure he'll have another mouthful of abuse at the ready if he does.

I find it ironic that in the week when the very existence of men has been questioned, with many suggesting that a world without men is

considered 'a good thing', we've had stories this week in which two sports stars have allegedly been murdered by their wives/girlfriends

and one where a young lad was murdered after being deliberately led on by his supposed 'girlfriend' into a trap...

 

Mind you, in a world without men, there be no-one for women to murder/plot against... :unsure:

It would be very tidy, though.

Not as tidy as a world with just gay men...

Oooh, dunno about that. There'd be a right mess if millions of them stumbled out of their respective closets at the same time.

But I bet their uphill gardens would look just peachy.

And bar rooms would be neat and tidy, because all stools would be pushed in. All the way.

And their jewellery would be well looked after, because their rings are always nice and clean. Apparently.

If Boxing itself's not dead....it's hit rock bottom.

 

ITV4 are showing the women boxers for the first time and have dragged in some ex-Big Brother evictee and thrown a muppet up against her. She can't lose.....

 

Although, personally, I'd be happy to see her twitching carcases dragged from the canvas. Yes, I hate BB THAT much. :ghost3:

Update

 

Well, "Angel" McKenzie won. No surprise there, but I was cheered up by the audience's booing.

Just read the article actually.. he was found dead in a sauna after suffering a heat stroke. All these celebrities dying at young(ish) ages (40s/50s) recently is making me ever paranoid about my own fate.... am I just getting paranoid.....

.. Dim the lights. :)

 

Showtime commentator and former CNN journalist Nick Charles is battling stage 4 bladder cancer. At the same time, we have the father of the cocky and undefeated Floyd "Money" Mayweather Jr, Floyd Mayweather Sr., who is suffering from this incurable and unpredictable lung disease called sarcoidosis. While I was switching through the channels, I just happened to catch him saying "that every time he coughs" it scars his lungs.

Gary Craig not so well known, but reported in a way that would have earned DDP points non-the-less.
