I have a feeling this topic has already been covered, but are any of you boxing fans? I know that MMA fans and boxing fans have a somewhat contentious relationship, but I still love the sweet science and keep up with it as much as I can.

I wouldn't call myself a fan as I don't really "follow" boxing but if there is a boxing match on NBC sports or Showtime I usually pick that over anything else. You see I'm really in to grown men punching other grown men in the face.

Hockey is my second fav sport behind anyone getting punched in the head. Well that might not be true. I consider PORN to be a female sport and I like it as well.

I pay the $54.99 for only one fighter....the best boxer of all time....$$$ Money Mayweather $$$

- More skill and wit than Ali
- Makes Ray Robinson look like a baby
- Bigger sensation than Iron Mike
- Would make Manny his Dyk_

You've got Leonard and Duran, thank god. On my own list I also have Hagler and Hearns, just to round out the 4 great 80's WWs/MWs that all fought each other.

I mostly just watch the big fights. I appreciate the sport though.

I have a friend that loves boxing but hates mma and belittles the sport every chance he gets. I find that to be confusing as hell.

This pretty much sums up why Golovkin is one of my favorite fighters right now. This guy is all badass.
