I'm a hardcore fan of the sweet science and have no interest in MMA. I like kickboxing though. I don't care for the style of MMA where fights begin with laughable attempts to box, followed by the usual tumble to the ground, where fans are subjected to a glorified wrestling match. I don't care for the wrestling portion, period.

Not threatened by MMA, not calling for its demise, or slamming its promotion, it's just not my cup of tea. I'd watch two unknown club fighters fight in an unknown venue than watch any MMA match.

Two great fighters may be meeting here and I wish them both the best because they both deserve the utmost respect for excelling in this great sport of Boxing. MMA doesn't matter IMO, at least not to this Boxing fan.

Default The is a BOXING Forum!

By the way, this is a BOXING forum. There is no place here to talk of MMA. You want to bestow the virtues of MMA, there is another forum for that!

I for one am not interested in comparisons between the two sports. Boxing is the only sport that matters to me here. I wouldn't care if MMA became more popular than the NFL, I'd still focus strictly on the Sweet Science. To hell with MMA.

I find MMA about as distasteful as chewable dessicated liver tablets.

You're last two posts summed up my feelings on the matter exactly. I wanted to rep both posts but I can't do that

Hopefully we can put this matter to bed

You are dredging up a thread from 2009...one in which ESPN got wrong. Good to see you are right on top of the latest developments.
