    and don't forget his record of KOs seems to involve them still standing.

    At some point perhaps some compassion for the kid is in order , anyone that delusional can't have much happiness in his life , and we can all see the bad end and the subsequent headline coming.

    Damn but I'd hate to be his father..............seems a great deal of penance to be saddled with for things past or the like.
    I was really tempted to call it a 'Poe' myself when he started with his "I'm gonna be fighting Wladimir Klitschko in Belgrade" bit". If all of this is the result of him having a little delusion being turned into a monumental case of insanity by the people around him....****, I guess some people will do anything for a laugh.

    Poe's Law - any sufficiently advanced satire is indistinguishable from the real thing.

    Describing CZ as having a little delusion is like describing Fukushima as having a little wobble or hurricane Katrina as having a little breeze.

    What I'm saying is that he may not have been as crazed as he is now. He may have started with the small delusion of "I'm a good boxer...nah, I'm a damn good boxer" until people around kept enabling him and egging him on until BAM! Full blown crazy.

    Then again, maybe he always was this nuts. Just thinking out loud.

    Poe's Law. It states that any parody can be so well written/spoken/performed that one will mistake it for an actual instance of the thing being parodied. It first cropped up, as far as I know, when some folks began imitating religious fundamentalists on a few online forums. Several people believed them to be the real deal. It spread from there.

    IIRC, it actually states that it is not possible to parody an extremist (originally, creationists) so ludicrously that someone will not mistake the parody as a legitimate position. Similar idea though.

    Here's the definition from RationalWiki. It pretty much sums up all our collective definitions:
