Does this mean we will not see a pressure fighter dominate like either of these guys?
Is that style for the dustbin?
IF indeed safety first fighters will dominate, then it will mean a serious decline in interest in the sport of boxing.
the klits are the perfect example.
the sad reality is that safety first fighters can only garner interest IF they fight pressure fighters.
nothing is more coma-inducing than seeing two safety-first fighters face each other. now i'm sure there are a number of fans who would actually find this entertaining, but its safe to assume that the majority of those who watch boxing want to see more leather being thrown.
i mean, who would want to watch a sport that puts you to sleep?
