This is laughable. The Kevin Rooney trained Tyson would destroy both *****ckos in less than a full round.


EDIT: I spell their last name with a "C" instead of a "K" because its more appropriate.

You're a *****.


If they're so weak then how come they run the show - on the planet - and have for years now?!


Kick rocks, dude. Otherwise I suggest you get in the ring with them and take those belts away.

Years ago, everyone even knew who the last OLYMPIC heavyweight champion was in anticipation of watching him turn pro.

If you can ever whittle this back to the old days when there was one champion in each weight class, I think you would be surprised how fast the quality of the fighters would improve in America.
I would add to these criticisms that I think Pay Per View has also hurt boxing as it limits the number of people exposed to the major bouts. I am old enough to remember when a heavyweight match with Ali or Foreman was a major sports broadcasting event watched by many people, even if they weren't big followers of boxing. Now only the true fans watch on pay per view to see a bout that may or may not go past the first round but still cost a lot to purchase for viewing.
Major heavyweight championship bouts should be broadcast on ESPN or the networks where a wide audience can see them.
