    Boxing Rant: Whatīs wrong with the U.S.?

    Allright, this is no news, I know. I just happened to watch the De la Hoya-Sturm fight. It itīs clear for anybody with eyes in the face and brains in the head tha Sturm clearly won. He outboxed the Golden Boy since the first rounds. DLH may hav won a couple of rounds, but Sturm won the fight and nobody can say other thing without lying.
    So DLH was the promoter of the fight, so what? does this give him the title? Oh, yeah, youīre the one who puts the money, so hereīs the title... Bullshit, when it comes to fighting nothing else matters, the best wins and Sturm really did beat the crap of of his face (you should have seen DLH bleeding).
    These are the things that are killing boxing, and you know, I used to like DLH.
    So what was this all about? Itīs a trick to keep the titl in the united states? Itīs a matter of bucks and not a matter of fgists? I suppose next time letīs just see who has the bigger bank account and give him the title without fighting... Yeah, Bill Gates the next heavyweutgh champion of the world.
    On a final note, Iīm not German nor I like german boxers. Most of them are soooo boring (in fact, most of european boxing is sooooo boring). But what is fair, is fair.
    Sorry if Iīm not making myself as clear as I want to, Iīm quite upset now.

    anyone else notice DLH's shorts looked like they were 2-3 sizes too small?
    I thought the fight was obviously in Strum's favor, but as Jenfucious so elegantly put it

    "nobody gives a crap about strum"

    if he wanted a win, he shoulda gone for the knockout in the last round :P
    obviously it was unfair, but thats life

    Remember this thread for the next time someone tries to make a point about boxers going for points instead of KO.

    I donīt beleive Sturm could KOīd DLH if he wanted to. German boxers are not known for their punch power, and rarely the do for the KO. Still, it was a robbery.

    Not that hopkins did a great macht too. The best fight, doubtless, was Lazcano vs. Castillo.

    This is an example of what will kill off "real" boxing - it will go the way of wrestling. Impressive athletically but ultimately... fake!!

    Anyone who thinks that winning by points is a good idea, deserves to lose.
