To me, watching Nicolino Locche slip punches is the most exhillirating thing I've ever seen in a boxing ring... but many (most?) people probably consider him boring because he's not an offensive fighter.

By contrast, most people loved watching fights like the Gatti/Ward trilogy, or fighters like Mike Tyso... I find him incredibly boring (I wouldn't pay $ to watch one inning of a baseball game) and never really enjoyed Gatti/Ward.

While appreciating what a guy like Locche could do......I can't find round after round of watching little contact and no damage happening as very exciting. I watch boxing mostly to see people hitting each other. If I want to see people not hit each other, I will sit in a park somewhere.

Watching a guy make someone miss and then hit him with a punch that does damage....now not only do I find that exciting, I think it's art.
