I do get a fair bit of it on DAZN and while the action is still really good sometimes, it’s hard to invest when you don’t know most of the fighters. Judging still being crooked has stayed consistent though, so there’s that…

I wonder how boxing and UFC even exist

With all of the attention and emphasis on head injuries and concussions ....

I thought for sure that boxing, UFC, professional wrestling, etc were going to be shut down or have major protocol changes about bleeding/cuts after Tommy Morrison died from AIDS. Somehow the sports survived that and are somehow surviving CTE-related injuries and deaths now despite many of the retired fighters not being able to string a sentence together after all of the years of head trauma. I am amazed that some fighters such as Foreman and Pacquiao still seem to be in good health despite years in the ring.

This thread should be in the "Classic Threads" section.


There is a guy on YouTube named "Rich the Fight Historian". He has done detailed videos on almost every fighter in this thread. He even goes back and covers guys from the 30's and 40's. I can't recommend his channel highly enough.


I know it's a lot of work but Papa Voo, you mentioned starting a thread on 70's boxing. That would be awesome.

I remember a lot of hype over Bobby Czyz early in the decade... my last fleeting moments following much of anything in boxing were about him.
