    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    Sorry guys IMHO boxing is not as simple as it appears to be. Just too many variables. Duck and move. Slip and counter. Rope a dope. Keep your distance with your jab then attack. Throw a strait right then left hook to the head or body. So many options not just left to muscle memory.

    And I think we all remember with a lump in our throat how the great Joe Louis's final fight, against Rocky Marciano, was tainted by their bitter running dispute in the ring over Descartes's speculation that an angel's mind might be directly aware of the physical states of its body caused by external objects rather than having sensory images as we do.
    Consider too, the infamous bout between Foucault and Sarte, when Michel argued that the depiction of insanity in the arts was humanity's method of expressing its division between its actual state, and its desired state, and Sarte responded by punching him in the dick.

    This is the subject of the novel "Foucault's Pendulum" by Umberto Eco. The "Pendulum" of the title is, in fact Foucaults cock. It's a cracking read.

    Not really Germaine to this thread. Boxing does involve strategy perhaps not as much as much as BJJ still strategy none the less. I do love a good boxing match as much as any of the fighting arts. Do you?

    The God damn Germans have nothing to do with it.
