Boxing

Postby Yoda » Sat Jan 20, 2007 12:21 pm

Anyone watch boxing? There is a pretty big fight on HBO tonight. Hatton/Urango for the title.

I started getting into boxing again about 2 years ago when we got HBO HD. It is something else to watch boxing in HD.

Was a fan in the Tyson era, but not so much anymore. :-/

Not a huge fan but I can sit down and watch a match anytime. I don't understand the sport as well as others, but I still think its an exciting sport to watch.

I've never been a boxing fan to begin with, but I watch it casually. I'm more into UFC and Pride FC, but am a lukewarm fan of both. I've always been a pro wrestling fan, although the WWE is in a state of disarray, but TNA and Ring Of Honor are where it's at. ;-D

Me too, Tyson was my alltime favorite. I watch now when Jeff Lacy or Winky Wright fight b/c they are from Tampa, and i also love to watch Roy Jones Jr's old fights when he dominated. Floyd Mayweather is pretty good now too.

UFC's commissioner says the best thing about his sport is nobody has died... yet :-o

Like a lot of people I was bigger fan of boxing during the 80s and 90s. I will still watch the FNF on ESPN, Contender, HBO, etc. but it's been a long time since I would purchase a PPV. In the late 90s MMA began to fill that void for me as boxing was starting to fall apart. The current state of the sport is just horrible. :,-(

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Yeah I wouldn't do PPV but HBO has plenty of good fights. My favorite is Klitchko. He's an absolute animal. .."I must break you".
