Boxing

I can't believe I was suckered by all the hype to purchase the $100 boxing match tonight, if you want to call it that.

They say live and learn but at almost 64 it doesn't seem I'm catching on.

I've never understood the appeal of watching two guys beat each other to a bloody pulp.

Well Mayweather had plenty of practice with his baby-mamas. No wonder he won. Isn't it time we stopped encouraging and rewarding violence.

I remember my "experience" back in the '80s. I even forget who was fighting, but I got the popcorn ready, all the beverages set up and cooled down, turned the TV on to watch a match that lasted 15 seconds. KO. Game over. Luckily, back then, it didn't cost what it does now.

I agree with Ray on promoting a violent sport. Like, what's the point? They could have gone to Baltimore and gotten the same results to their bodies.

Larry, I remember that fight [was it Tyson?] 3 guys at the shop paid $25 [?] each to watch it on the big screen at a bar, 1 went to the bath rm and another to the bar to get drinks - both missed the fight!

Yeah, it may have been Tyson. I forget what they did with the remainder of the time allocation on TV. Blink of an eye and it's over.

I'm surprised PPV didn't kill boxing a long time ago. I wouldn't pay the $25 Mark mentioned to say nothing of a C-note.
