Just out of curiousity, are there any boxers who even have a college education (not trying to be insulting; I'm honestly curious if there are any)?
ok I Agree with most but Boxing isnt for idiots man, its a perfectionist sport.. my boxing coach would get on us if our feet were just a little bit out of position, the way you throw your punches as well.. the right cross when you throw that punch you cant just throw it out there you gotta be sure your covering your chin when you throw it, and if you drop it when you bring the punch back a good boxer will pick that up and eat you alive. Boxers read out there opponents, try to figure out patterns they do and pick them apart, they time there punches, they have to react as fast as the mind can react.. its no sport for idiots man ive played football and boxing, and ill tell you this right now you can play football with only half your brain cells... boxing you'd get killed, thus why the greatest boxer of all time was also the smartest boxer of all time.. Muhammad Ali.
