When I was a little kid, boxing was awesome. You had Hagler and Hearnes, Sugar Ray Leonard, Boom Boom Mancini, Macho Camacho and the 88 Olympic boxing team. Mike Tyson fighting Mitch Green in the street is a memory I'll cherish for the rest of my life. Flash forward to 2010 and boxing is a wrap.
Instead of being tough guys, today's boxers walk a thin pink line. 2010's top ranked boxers would rather live out karaoke fantasies than knock people out. Seriously, what's worse: Pac-Man's off-key rendition of "Sometimes When We Touch" or the gay Korean dude signing Mariah Carey? Before you say Manny was just clowing around, consider that he has two platinum albums in the Philippines. C'mon Filipino people. There must be some more car tuning parts or (size 7) Dunks you can spend your money on before this shit. Oscar De La Hoya single-handedly tried to ruin boxing first by releasing a terrible pop album and then by dressing up in womens' lingerie. Floyd Mayweather isn't in any better shape as he keeps cranking out a steady stream of awful rap videos. Floyd, please leave the mic alone. You are no Allen Iverson.
This shit is a disgrace.
