Boxing

Post by PLAYLIFE on Tue Oct 19 2010, 02:04

Any fans here?

Can't say I'm a particular big fan but don't mind watching if it's on.

Just watched Vitali Klitschko smash Shannon Briggs for 12 rounds although couldn't knock him out.

Talking about it at work, I recalled a bout back in the mid 90s (guessing) where there was some clown with a ponytail (I think) who was running about and then charged at their opponent and was knocked down for the count pretty quickly.

Does anyone remember this and if so who the boxers were? I can't seem to find it and my memory is very vague!

i'm a bit the same... but i reckon the mixed matial arts ultimate fighter stuff is way more interesting... whenever i watch boxing i cant help but think how quickly a mixed martial arts guy half their size would have them tapping out with a pinky lock or something lol

nfi about names or dates for any of it though...

MMA makes boxing (most of the time) look like pillow fighting.

MMA is such an art form....BJJ is the most dangerous and elegant form of fighting I've ever seen. To watch an MMA fight with two BJJ masters who aren't going to punch it out but roll is amazing. I like watching Nate Diaz...never looks like that kid should win a fight...and BLAMMO!!! the other guy taps.

There's a typo waiting to happen...! Beer

I watched that video you posted, H.
That has to be a contender for the WORST soundtrack ever...LOL. Sorry - but the fighting didn't do a huge amount for me either. Hollywood has a lot to answer for...

Gelert.

It's a perspective. When you first start watching BJJ it's odd looking...when you first start watching Nate Diaz it basically looks like he is getting his ass kicked. He's a skinny fucking kid and the other guy always looks more like a traditional fighter. Then you realize the other guy is almost always on top and you think once again Nate is getting beat...after awhile you realize Nate is like a python and he is literally rolling from sub attempt to sub attempt...he doesn't get tired...he gets punched a bunch...and then STRIKE! he has an arm, leg, or the others guy neck and it's fucking over.

The video doesn't show the come from behind "look" of his fights. The other guy might look bigger and faster, but in reality the other guy is fighting for his life trying to get away from Nate.

If I can find a more complete fight that shows that I will post it.

Oh....and yea...the music sucked...Nate is a punk...but that kid has Brazilian Ju-Jitsu skills.
