I understand all the tactics though I am keen on how to box, it just tends to be boring sometimes at the high level, but as I said its growing on me.
There are a whole load of boxers today. Unlike the UFC I probably wont be familiar with all the top current boxers. Its too much information for my brain. I know only the well known fighters.
What I guess I am really trying to say is, I am a casual fan, but I want to be a hardcore fan. But it just seems like theres too much going on with all the different weight classes and IBO IBF WBA so many different orginizations. Hard to keep track.
Also the rich history of boxing seems kind of overbearing. I will never know as much as I want to know it seems. But I am trying to learn.
I started out like this with UFC a total noob and now I know everything. I want to do the same for boxing but where to start?
Can someone hook me up by posting videos that will help break me in. I'm sorry for noob-ness, but I like this sport, and I want to see more.
What are you looking for in particular? Do you like the chess match fights that can happen at the elite level or are you more for the knock down drag out caution to the wind fights? Theres so many variations like phone booth fights or fights in the pocket.
