Boxing: a Darwinism esque laso also used to cull the poor, gang members, drug dealers etc into something twats like me can laugh at. How does one talk about it intellectually?
Dave: 'wow he really punched him hard in the face there'
Bob: 'anar bruv, almost snapped his face in two'
Every time I hear Tyson Fury put on his best American-hype-machine act with his Yorkshire accent I get suicidal at the cringe. Then I see legendary douchey's like Hugh Jackman ringside at cage fights and think to myself, yea. It's the loud/quiet dynamic in life form. These people are utterly necessary. *sigh
I used to watch iron Mike way back when seeing grown men beat each other up was wondrous and cool. The guy was a freak, a big rapey punchey freak and he did the rapey punchey thing better than all the other circus freaks. More like an animal. Not that it matters since I would've been at an age where eating oxo cubes was also cool, like boxing.
