  • Comments Thread For: Conceicao: I Was Able To Inspire A New Generation of Amateurs In Brazil; Time To Do Same As a Pro

    No matter how many times his achievement is matched moving forward, nobody can ever take away what Robson Conceicao was the first to accomplish. The unbeaten junior lightweight contender sat back and watched with pride as this year's Olympic boxing team competed in Tokyo. It was a weird feeling for Conceicao to not be there, having represented Brazil in 2008 Beijing, 2012 London and 2016 Rio. The last of the three saw him become the first ever boxer from his country to win a Gold medal, doing so in his home nation following a win over France's Sofiane Oumiha in the final round of men's lightweight competition.

    It is weird that Brazil produced one of the greatest fighters of all time, but otherwise has produced hardly any decent fighters. Argentina, with a much smaller population, has produced dozens, if not hundreds, of world champions. Americans tend to say 'oh the Brazilians focus on soccer' but, er, so do the Argentinians.

          They produce a lot of successful mma fighters. Seems boxing just isn't that popular in Brazil.

            Maybe no Brazilians have followed Eder Jofre's foot steps into boxing because they went into MMA. Thr Gracie family is influential in Brazil and the MMA world. Anderson Silva became one of the GOATs of MMA. Amanda Nunes is the best female fighter in the world. There have been many great MMA fighters from Brazil.

            Just recently, Anderson Silva was speaking about how he wonders if he'd have been a world champ in boxing if that had been his focus from a young age. He beat a much younger Chavez Jr.
