How do you discuss Boxing with 'casual' fans?
Or people who think they know boxing , but really have no idea...
I have this co-worker who tried to talk to me about how Timothy Bradley was the next big thing and Manny Pacquiao was "fed" to him, and that Win was to catapult Bradley into stardom and compared it to Joe Louis fighting Rocky Marciano (Bradley being Marciano).........
My head almost collapsed with that stupid logic.
This happens more often than not! What is up with people trying to act as if they 'know' boxing ... friggin when i first got into boxing i was fully open about my ignorance and tried to learn as much as humanly possible. But i have yet to come across someone who is like "Yeah i know a little bit but not enough to make informed opinions about whatever fighters" its either "I dont watch boxing" or "i know floyd mayweather and manny pacman, therefore i know Boxing"
How do you guys deal with this?? Or do you have any ridiculous stories about Boxing arguments with the casual fan?
