Fighters you liked when active but dislike in retirement, or vice versa?
Used to be a big ODH fan. Followed him from Olympics to his last fight vs Manny. Only rooted against him once and that was against Tito Trinidad. Now as a promoter he's turned into a self serving douche bag IMO. I know that's harsh but he talked so much trash about wanting to clean up the sport and being a promoter that puts fans and fighters first. All he has become is Top Rank 2.0
Conversely, I HATED Lennox Lewis. Awful, boring, is he British? Jamaican? Canadian? Make up your damn mind! Now as a commentator and contributer to the sport I love the guy. I you tube his fights and he was a beast at times.
Should've enjoyed him when we was active.
I was on my way to disliking Chavez Sr after loving his career. Hate him as a commentator as I feel he is a homer when it comes to covering Mexican boxers but he has sort of redeemed himself in my eyes seeing as he was honest when assessing Jr's loss to Sergio. I was also impressed with the kind words he had for Camacho. It would have been easy to pile on seeing as Camacho had his demons but Chavez showed class.
