    Welterweight boxing and boxing in general haswent down the toilet. Boxing isn't exciting as it used too be that's why nobody wants to whatch. I ordered The De La Hoya vs. Mayweather hoping it would be a good like back when but it just didn't deliver.

    If you wan't real fights go back and whatch Sugar Ray Leonard vs. Hagglar, Sugar Shane Mosely, Ali vs. Foreman, Frazier, that's when boxing was great even when Holyfield, Tyson, Mercer made it exciting but nowadays boxing sucks.

    De La Hoya vs. Mayweather proved it. Boring fights with inaccurate combos and no flurries or just duking it out. Mayweather was pretty accurate but he's weak no punch shook the other guy. I'll stick to whatching ESPN Classics and my boxing DVD's. If you ask me the most exciting sport involving fighting is the UFC. That takes more talent than boxing does and you know yourgoing to get a knockout everytime.

    Chuck Liddell vs. Rampage order it.........it will be awsome and you won't be upset because your garaunteed a knockout, blood, and haymakers.

    Just thought I would throw that in there since this thread has nothing to do with our WR's anymore.

    If you bash boxing while hyping the freaking UFC of all things, I'm sorry. That's just bad. If you're going to watch MMA, watch skilled fighters. Not the drunken redneck styles that the UFC offers.
    It's all a matter of preference. If you want to see pure skill, Mayweather will never disappoint. If you want to see a brawl or an exciting fight, you're going to have to look further down when it comes to talent. Talented boxers box. Fighters fight.
    Chuck Liddell is a joke. I probably will watch the Rampage/Chuck fight just to see him lose, and it is entertaining. The skill isn't near as impressive though.

    But no, boxing hasn't gone down the drain. The heavyweight division has, but the welters and such are as good as they've ever been. Sometimes we get stuck in the past though and everything in the old days is better. Hindsight works that way. But watch a Manny Pacquiao fight. A Juan Manuel Marquez fight. You'd see.

    I can't say who won the fight because i didn't see it. I'm being critical of de la hoya for losing 5 of the biggest fights he has had.

    Now he admits he lost to mosley the first time and was stopped by hopkins but the other three he insists he won. My criticism is that they shouldn't have been so close that it mattered. A great fighter exerts his will on an opponent and closes the show.

    De la hoya was the naturally bigger fighter than mayweather so why didn't he exert his will and get the win?

    Anything decided subjectively by a judge isn't a sport.

    Boking to KO is a sport.

    (Personally I hate all boxing)
