Boxing is going to have some serious trouble in the next coming years. This bullshit coupled with the rise of MMA? They can basically kiss the under-40 audience goodbye.


They just put the nail in the coffin for their own sport. RIP Boxing.

You mean you have no interest in seeing Leila Ali pound some other girl in some out of the way place? Hey, where's your respect for tradition?

Thank God. I'm getting tired of getting phone calls for all the douchebags who can't figure out how to make their cable boxes work in time for the fight. Or better yet, call to ask *exactly* what time the main event will begin... what?!

Uh... that does nothing to alleviate your problem, then. lol MMA is GROWING.

Personally, I don't find it entertaining.

After training in MMA myself I see no reason why anyone would waste their time training in boxing "alone" anymore. That being said, boxing is becoming as fixed as wrestling. I didn't see the fight but nobody likes the decision. I don't waste time watching boxing anymore but I'll watch MMA if it's on television.

What did Pacquiao lose?
Follow up-question: What is a Pacquiao?
Actually not much of a sports fan to begin with, do know who Pacquiao is, he everywhere lately.
My only real boxing connection is got to know Eric Morrell a little bit a few years ago and he was a nice guy.

It is funny how when you really don't have an interest in something, you are never the less drawn into contact with it. It's kind of like people who don't like cats being especially attractive to them and always having cats rubbing against your leg despite your dislike!

Well, it was like that with me and boxing. For many years I was a neighbor, and served on the home owner's association, with a lady who was known as "Mrs. Boxing" throughout California. Her name was Aileen Eaton and she and her husband had owned the Olympic Auditorium (the main site of upper level boxing events in Southern California and until recently often the site of the Academy Awards among many other events). I got to know her and always enjoyed her presence at our meetings. She was a bit of a crusty old gal, as you can imagine, and had a great sense of humor. You could always tell when Eileen was home because her personal car, a white early seventies Cadillac Seventy-Five limousine with personalized license plates reading "Boxing" would be sitting out beside her house. During the years I knew her she had a couple who served as her housekeepers and the man as her chauffeur. Following her death this couple held an estate sale and many of the accumulation of this boxing promoting family's memorabilia was sold off to the public. I went to the sale more out of curiosity to see what would be there. It turned out there was all kinds of boxing memorabilia, literally hundreds of posters touting names of boxing stars that even I knew the names of (so they must have been pretty famous), there were autographed boxing gloves and robes and boxing stuff that I had no idea what it was. I have often wondered if I had missed out on a major investment opportunity. Probably did, but I wouldn't have known where to market the stuff anyway.

As fate would have it, about the middle of the 1980's Mohammed Ali's just divorced wife, Veronica Porsche, and her two daughters, Hana and Leila, moved into the house next door to ours. Again I was brought close to boxing as I got to know "The Champ," as he came and went from visiting his two daughters. The kids also attended the same elementary school as my son and we would occasionally run into each other while picking up our kids. At the time it was said that Mohammed Ali was the most famous man in the world. I wouldn't know about that, but he was always a pleasant and friendly whenever we talked. My son and his friends at school didn't have a clue who he was until they saw him on television at the ceremony celebrating the centennial of the Statue of Liberty.

I have told the story before about how one day he had mistakenly parked his Rolls Corniche convertible in front of my driveway, blocking my exit. I had to send my son's nanny next door to tell Ali's nanny to tell "The Champ" to get his car out of my driveway! He came right out and waved and moved his Rolls immediately.

At the time I knew him he was just beginning to show the signs of the Parkinson's Disease that now so affects him. It did show up in his speech but not all that noticeably.

So you can see, though I have never had an interest in boxing, like that cat that gives you unwanted attention, boxing has had a place in my life!

Your story reminded me of another one of those contacts. I worked at a really tiny supper club in Middleton called The Goalpost. I was there for four years and near the end in addition to waiting tables I would also come in during the day and clean vac. etc. I answered the phone and a man asked for Tony, the owner. He wasn't there and I offered to take a meesage, the man gave me his name and when I asked him to repeat and spell it he started laughing. He said "You don't know who I am do you?". I told him I did not and he said "Ask your dad tonight when you go home". It turned out it was Jake Lamotta! That was a decade before Raging Bull and I had no idea.

Worse decision ever. They should make it a requirement for judges to walk through vegas casinos then through dark alleys after they decide on a match. Either that or have the computers do it.

Yeah, with only three judges that sounds kinda lopsided. HAHAHAHA the Vegas thing would never work! You could never find judges!

"LOSE" is a strong word. I'll be a $26M loser any day of the week!

Wonder how long it will take Pacquiao to go through his $26 million. It took Mohamed Ali a few years but he managed to do it, leaving him at the kindness and mercy of others!
