Ok, an essay contest on the best fighter from your nationality or heritage it is. It can be as long or as short as you want. No plagiarism please, this is on your honor.


This will be open to history section regulars only. If you're not a regular and would like to get in please PM me.

Contest starts now. The word contest must be in your thread title so the thread is easily distinguished from others.

I need some ideas for a new boxing contest. I spoke to Tim Horton yesterday and he is still willing to pledge a copy of "Roar of the crowd" to the winner and I'll throw 5 billion points in. I'd like the contest to be shorter than past contests...does anyone have any ideas?

How about a boxing picks contest that Scott used to do?

That is an idea I may like to use in the future for certain members of this section, but I'd like something that brings a little traffic with it yet not so difficult to take care of. Maybe an essay contest?

Why not an essay about the best fighter from your own nationality/heritage?

I think the answer is in the title, we should have a boxing contest.
Fight 1 should be me and Barn.


I'm in for the essay contest but I'm not sure how well it will turn out given the last one, although the reward is 500x better so it should be good.

nc you do realise what you're getting yourself into, i've been watching a lot of Marty Cutler recently. Focussing on perfecting his overhand right which can be seen at 0:23.
