I know this is an MMA site and a lot of you guys are for some reason offended by the very mention of --gasp-- boxing here, but check this shit out, homeslices. It might just reaffirm your hatred and scorn for the sweet science. As many of the regs here know, I have vehemently defended the sport of boxing on this site for a couple of years now... but even I had to laugh out loud.
This is a video of the cruiserwight fight between Danny Green and Paul Briggs that went down in Perth, Australia last Wednesday.
Briggs is a tough fighter who went the distance twice with contender Tomasz Adamek in what were brutal slugfests, so I think he can probably handle a jab... especially one that doesn't connect.
Apparently a lot of late betting action went down on Briggs to lose by first round knockout. Briggs should be stripped of his purse and banned from competing in any future professional events -- both here and abroad. The way boxing is going, however, he'll probably be fighting Roy Jones for the WGC (Who Gives a Crap) world title next month.
It's filth like this that's put a sport I love down the shitter in the last few years. Between Don King and bad decisions seemingly going down every weekend, boxing is in rough shape. Too bad Floyd "Coward" Mayweather won't put pen to paper to try and save the sport that made him so much "Money" in the first place.
