Subject: RE: BS: Boxing; cruel, primitive & nauseating
Well, people do do some dumb stuff... Boxing is just on of them... I boxed as a kid... Heck, them were the days when you'd square off with yer best friend, duke it out and then go get a burger... Big deal... We all boxed... Yeah, okay, it had it's drawbacks: busted hands, black eyes, busted lips... Big deal... Who cares???
Went down to DC when I was 15 or 16 and end me and my buddies all entered the Golden Gloves tournament... $5 and a forged parent's signature... Lotta fun... I made it to the 3rd round... My buddy, Llyod Shelton, made it to the finals before losing... Art Buckner??? He could flat out box... He took his weight class... We had a ball... It weren't no different than playing football...
So boxing itself has a bad rap...
Professional boxing??? Purdy dangerous and much different then just going down to DC and have a couple fist fights...
