    This is the best fight in a long time and it will probably be a lot longer until there is another boxing match of this magnitude.

    The only reason I even have a slight interest in this fight is because I hate Mayweather so much. I might watch the stream on it, but I'm probably going to see Spider-Man 3 instead.

    That article just makes me laugh. I can sit here and bicker till the dogs come home. What it comes down to is ive never rented a boxing paper-view and never will, not even for the biggest Tyson fights. Ive rented almost every ufc since #40 and still enjoy it. MMA > Boxing.

    :rofl: This guy is talking some serious shit....

    "true sport against the mosh pit of sweat and bloodied skull fractures known as ultimate fighting. "

    "Mixed martial arts will never be as good as boxing on its worst day. Many of the ultimates are nothing but thugs and ruffians"

    "It's human cockfighting. It appeals to the lowest common denominator of human existence."

    "boxing has more charm in its broken pinky than the Ultimate Farcical Clown league does in its entire crappy organization"

    "No UFC goon has or ever will possess the grace and natural showmanship of De La Hoya or the true fearsome fighting skills of Mayweather."

    "Notice the word: skills. This match will not resemble a bar-room brawl but meticulous, highly practiced, man-to-man warfare between two skilled, all-time athletes."

    I respect MMA but it pisses me off the many mma fans totally disrespect boxing and says its boring and it sucks and what ever.

    This guys has obviously not seen many mma fights and says some dumb shit, but i get the feeling that most mma fans havent seen many boxing matches when they say equally stupid shit.

    didn't read the article... but if you fucks really think boxing sucks you need a fucking reality check. :madfawk:



    MMA > boxing for sure though... but to say soccer > boxing IMO justifies a swift kick to the face.

    I think its funny that most of boxing's reaction to MMA has been to just trash it and the MMA's response has been for boxing to put their money where their mouth is.

    I was impressed with Oscars response about the rise of MMA that they showed on ESPN the other day.

    didnt read the article, but boxing is a great sport. not better by any means than mma, but it definately has its own charm.

    that said, it has been run into the ground by crooked promoters and the next generation of would-be greats will be training in MMA instead.

    Here's my email to him:

    Your bias, lack of education on the topic, and selective interpretation of facts about MMA ruin your credibility as a journalist. If you fail to see or acknowledge the "thuggishness" and corruption that is rampant in your beloved sport of boxing, then you are truly blind. Perhaps you're trying to be controversial in an effort to bring yourself some much-needed attention. I surely never heard of you prior to opening the link to your article. You are simply a hack.

    He's what you call a troll
    He sums up MMA and the UFC as:
    "[FONT=Arial, Helvetica]All that league has done is take a few former nightclub bouncers, knuckle crackers and parolees, put on some fancy TV graphics and told them, "Kick the other guy in the nuts."
