I can find an Ali, a La Motta and even a Naseem Hamed thread, but no general boxing one. It seems a fairly dangerous activity to me, as evidenced by the appearance of Panto Frank on the 1989 DL as he was about to face Tyson.

I'll get to my point, shall I? I guess even boxing is less dangerous than shooting.

why, you little...

A terrible end to a life for sure but, I do have to broach the subject. Does the term "Brain dead" really apply to Boxers?
Just wondering.

I sometimes think boxing press conferences are a lot more entertaining than the actual fights, and at least they're not on at 4 in the morning at 20 a pop. Doubtful that Hatton will win, but I'm sure he'll have another mouthful of abuse at the ready if he does.

why, you little...

Maryport is a disappointment for which there is no cure, but the annual Deathrace thread hereabouts provides welcome distraction.

I find it ironic that in the week when the very existence of men has been questioned, with many suggesting that a world without men is
considered 'a good thing', we've had stories this week in which two sports stars have allegedly been murdered by their wives/girlfriends
and one where a young lad was murdered after being deliberately led on by his supposed 'girlfriend' into a trap...

Mind you, in a world without men, there be no-one for women to murder/plot against... :unsure:

Not as tidy as a world with just gay men...

Oooh, dunno about that. There'd be a right mess if millions of them stumbled out of their respective closets at the same time.

And bar rooms would be neat and tidy, because all stools would be pushed in. All the way.

And their jewellery would be well looked after, because their rings are always nice and clean. Apparently.

If Boxing itself's not dead....it's hit rock bottom.

ITV4 are showing the women boxers for the first time and have dragged in some ex-Big Brother evictee and thrown a muppet up against her. She can't lose.....

Although, personally, I'd be happy to see her twitching carcases dragged from the canvas. Yes, I hate BB THAT much. :ghost3:
Update

Well, "Angel" McKenzie won. No surprise there, but I was cheered up by the audience's booing.

Just read the article actually.. he was found dead in a sauna after suffering a heat stroke. All these celebrities dying at young(ish) ages (40s/50s) recently is making me ever paranoid about my own fate.... am I just getting paranoid.....
