C-Zizzle, keepin' it gangsta. I am not making this up.

I'm horrified, yet strangely I cannot look away.

I am SO making up "TEAM ZELENOFF" gear.

Posted in T&N because, well, technically, he's -- um -- training. Yeah.

Maybe there should be a "Zelenoff Room" on these boards?

why would he 1. tape this (he's clearly not analyzing his technique here) and 2. put this on the internet for the entire world to see (no one is stoked on a 45 second clip of some dude winging shots at a heavy bag)?

Because his entitlement and identity issues manifest themselves in self-aggrandizing, delusional narcissism? :dunno:

Actually I thought he looked ok for the first four seconds or so.


This all has to be a joke. Those silly punches have to be intentionally comical.

Don't think it is a joke. Too many of these bag-whackers on the interweb for my liking. They must think they're impressing someone but it sure aint us.

If I can go out on a limb -- or up on a soapbox :soapbox: . . . .

I blame the culture of instant gratification. I see these guys, too. I see plenty of them coming into the gym -- doughy, soft, yet swaggering and talking **** anyway -- and once they realize that it's actual WORK, they bag it. But boxing LOOKS easy if you're doing it right. And I think that the amount of punishment involved in learning to box is beyond the comprehension of kids raised on fast food and self-esteem camps. So they make a video of themselves looking like a douchebag, and then get bent out of shape when those of us who are actually putting in the work beat them down.

What whitehope and boxbrian and their ilk don't seem to get is that some of us get offended when someone comes along who clearly hasn't put his time in, and makes a video wherein he says that he can whip anybody. It doesn't work that way. There is no sticker the coach gives your parents that says "My kid is a TERRIFIC BOXER at Bucket of Blood Gym."

It doesn't offend me. But I pity any man who won't forge himself in fire. It must make for a very hollow life.
