Yeah, when you get a chance check out doublelegtakedown's link or just go to youtube.com and run a search on you're own. As for your dial-up, I can't help you with that.

Actually, I rarely find too many kick boxing contests boring. Then again, neither do I find many boxing contests boring either. If you take it in context to what they are, and accept the fact that they are one-dimensional, it's not too bad.

Now Baseball... That I find boring, but that's a different subject all together.

BTW--Usually the worst thing I find about the kick boxing events that they air on ESPN is that they're usually terribly dated, up to 2 years old.

It doesn't matter if you agree or disagree... As long as I don't bore you and I spark a moment of thought, my goal is achieved.

I think the thread starter thinks kid boxing sucks after watching Mike Hominick yesterday. Sure, Mike Hominick sucks and made kickboxing look like a woman sport but actually it is a pretty good sport and its almost the same as UFC except lesser grappling and punching.

Ya Ironman i agree with you about the europenan style. But really it's true Muay thai Is super exciting in my opinion. Their always landing knees and elbows and their kicks are insane. they don't use the shin guards either. So if they land a kick boy it'll hurt. WOW i love watching Muay Thai It's not boring at all. Just Take a Look at it. It should change your mind.

What are you talking about kickboxing is better than boxing IMO. They always do some huge kicks and blows its amazing. Have you ever watched Ray Sefo, Remy, or Michael McDonald? If so your opinion would be completely changed bro.
