I'm not into boxing.
All that daft banter and commentary before the fight
..' Ooo... yeah, i'm gonna knock you out sucker ..'
I can't take it seriously.
Dont get me wrong.. back in the day it had a certain appeal.. the boxers were great characters, I loved Ali, Bruno, Lennox, Eubanks...and I enjoyed big fights as much as the next person.
But not anymore
The whole thing reminds me of the book.. of mice and men...
Not sure why
I guess I don't like seeing men reduced to thier lowest common denominator.
However, boxing is so lucrative.
Most sports are these days.. aside from women's football
The money that these guys earn is no joke.. promoters also. T'umping down a man in the ring is big business.
A friend of mine wants to watch it.
If I fancy some company later maybe I'll hook up the pay per view... and sleep right through it all
