Boxing anyone?

I'm liking this forum more and more everyday, especially some of the off topic threads. It's kinda funny, sometimes I check out the site to see the crazy/funny/interesting off topic threads instead of the bike related ones!

Anyways, i guess it's my time to start an off topic post (can't remember if I already have.) I was just wondering if there are any boxing (not MMA) fans on this forum. I'm a big fan and have been boxing for a few years now and was just wondering if anyone else on here shares my other passion.

A couple side comments:

- Did anybody see the Mayorga / Vargas press conference? Talk about a pre-fight preview!

-I'm a big fan of filipino boxers; We're coming up and are at pace to gain 6 championship title within the next month. Good luck guys!

-Cocky fighters: some can pull it off and be entertaining (i.e. Mayweather) some just come off as obnoxious (Darchiniyan, Nassim Hamed)

Anyways, let me know what ya'll think. If there are no other fans here, I'm sure this thread will die quickly like a hippies tied shirt.

I'm a huge boxing fan.....you going to watch the Bernard Hopkins vs. Winky Wright fight on the 21st?

I used to watch boxing but cant watch it anymore since MMA showed up. UFC 73 was great!

Whatever happened to that kid, Anthony, who wanted to get into MMA? I wonder if he broke his jerki... ahem... his TWF hand?

Unfortunately I wont be able to watch it because I have a wedding to go to that night. My bet is on B-hop though. I hear he is looking very good at the gym right now. I might actually be able to meet him tomorrow because Imma be going to WildCard gym to meet some other boxers. (My trainer trains there and he hooks it up so that I can meet other big name boxers im a fan of.) If you get a chance to watch that fight, keep an eye out for Czar Amonsot on the under card. He is another up and coming filipino boxer with a shot to take the title away from Aussie Michael Katsidis.

1badcbr: Went to the gym today and my vote for this weekend is Hopkins. Did you get to see the Williams/margarito fight by the way?

I am a boxing fan but have not followed in in probably a year or two. I used to go to all of the local fights as much as possible. Being in Detroit it's cool to go to a local fight and see some of the greats like Emanual Stewart and Tommy Hearns. I watched part of a fight this weekend but didn't finish watching it. I think it might of been the prefights to the Vargas fight.

I dunno, maybe because I don't just watch boxing but box myself, I actually enjoy watch the "sweet science" more than MMA. I can't say anything bad about MMA, but boxing just excites me more. MMA seems more like an all out brawl (skill necessary), but there are so many subtle details which make a great boxer great. I'm also not the average boxing spectator; although I do love watching the great battle/brawls where guys are standing toe to toe, exchanging blows, I also enjoy and appreciate the matches where the boxer with superior skill/speed just picks apart his opponent and breaks him down little by little (even though this usually means less blood and gore.)
