Boxing Is Not A Sport To Be Taken Seriously

Well well, before the bout I predicted that Manny would lose to Bradley. When I saw him in his preparation before the fight I thought he was not read and would lose? After the decision, I was not surprised that he lost. flashback a couple of years and I was not surprised when LEON SPINKS defeated MUHAMMAD ALI, but many were. It realy depends on expectations vs reality that will determine ones reaction to the results of any sporting contest where anyone can win with the right set of tools and a few breaks along the way.  (Jan 28, 2013 | post #2)
