Man I Love Boxing.

I've been on a huge boxing kick lately, and yeah, I love it. You really can't get any better than Duran vs Leonard 1, though Pryor vs Arguello 1 is on its level. Seriously, forget the bottle controversy, Pryor vs Arguello 1 was one of the greatest fights ever. Not just boxing, but in general. Those 2 go all out, and there is never a dull moment. It's not even sloppy, it's highly technical.

It's great to watch a war that involves 2 guys who know how to punch, you know?

So yeah, boxing is awesome and stuff. Who do you like? I find myself digging the shit out of Carlos Monzon lately. Sure, he was a true piece of shit, but the guy could fight, and he picked apart Jose Napoles beautifully. Then, there are dudes like Duran, Barrera, Morales, Fenech, Hopkins, Roy, Toney and others that I have been watching for a while now.

I just don't get why people find it so boring.

Discuss.

I'm with you Damone, love me some boxing.

I've been watching a lot of Willie Pep and Pernell Whitaker fights because I made a post about them and made me want to watch them. Then I always go back and watch some vintage Tyson because that was just something special.

Pernell's pretty damn awesome, I've also been watching him. His first fight with Buddy McGirt was pretty good, and he totally got screwed over against Julio Cesar Chavez, who I absolutely love. Whitaker was on another level.

Mike used to be so damn talented until he started letting the BS get to him. Teddy Atlas should've pulled his gun on him more.

I hate comparing sports, but to be honest, nothing beats a top quality boxing match.

Leonard vs. Hearns I, is another great one that I watched recently.

I love the history of boxing, it's so special.

Do either of you two use Boxingcollection.com ?

I enjoy pros fights but I also love to watch up and comers fight. Once and awhile I will go to philly to watch matches at the blue horizon. Those guys can bang! The seats are so close that their sweat flies into the crowd. Everytime I have gone, Randall 'Tex' Cobb has been there. The dude still looks tough as nails.

It's all about boxingjunkies.com.

Cobb vs Ken Norton is a shockingly solid fight. Ken norton looks rough, but damn, it's a good scrap.

I don't like modern boxing. I find it really boring.

The older fights, ones from the 60's, 70's, and 80's, are much more interesting and I enjoy them more.

I find myself watching the older boxing fights myself, but I love current boxing, too. That being said, there's only a few I follow in the current field, such as Margarito, Mosley, Pac-Man, Hop's and others.

People who say that boxing matches are boring most of the time don't understand the science and beauty behind the sport. They are usually the same people who say Machida and Anderson are boring fighters. Most top level boxing fights pit the elite vs. the elite. So you can't expect one guy to go apeshit on the other and hit him with an "over hand right" and KO him.

Pernell was amazing. JCC was also amazing. I don't want to get started on boxing history because I will probably lose myself in my thoughts and I got to go back and watch the game.
