    It was a pretty good show, i liked it. What struck me the most is how almost all of the boxers profiled were in really bad health, talking very slowly and slurring most of their words. I knew boxing had severe effects like that but I always thought those were just isolated incidents. I really wonder how the health of MMA fighters will look like after years of competition but i doubt it will be as bad as those boxers last night :eek3:

    Is it just me or did that movie make Ali look like a douchebag? The only difference, he did have swagger.

    :rofl: fucking :werd: It was widely known that Ali was a huge shit talker and liked to get into his opponents heads. He'd always have some kind of rhymes for his opponents at the weigh ins and press conferences. He could back his shit up though.

    ? I don't know too many people here that talk shit about Mayweather. Motherfucker has a mouth he can back up, even if he does troll fighters. I am a fan, just think he's a punk for not fucking fighting pacman.

    Join me and we can rule the galaxy as father and son! Y'know? I mean it doesn't have to be as father and son, it can be just as, a-y'know- as two really close guys who just happen to be men y'know, just, two good-lookin' guys sharin' a cramped office runnin' the galaxy together-y'know just, gettin' the job done y'know- maybe we, maybe we do it occasionally but its not weird y'know cause we're just, two guys with ragin' goals y'know? I mean its not even about the doin' it part- but thats a part of it- but its not- its not the whole thing.

    I always back up Mayweather, especially when everybody jumped on the Pacman bandwagon

    It was sad to see those guys that you have this vision of them being invincible but now are just broken down old men. Joe Frazier is barely understandable, Ken Norton after that car accident. The ones who looked the best were the British guy and George Chuvalo. I heard George speak about his sons and their drug abuse issues. Heartbreaking.
