I guess the brain damage, hand injuries and vision problems boxers receive aren't inhumane or violent in nature....

for the lazy:
The World Boxing Council deeply regrets the fact that the great world ex heavyweight champion Mike Tyson is thinking of the possibility of contending in a sort known as K-1 which represents a huge and regrettable return to the most savage times in which respect to human life did not exist at all – as this “sport” is one of the most violent and less humane practices anyone can ever witness…the most astonishing thing is to see how a country of such elevated culture status such as Japan is adopting this criminal practice that literally takes society back to the cave era…. He can not think of blemishing such an extra ordinary career by stooping so low to participate in the denigrating legalized savagery of K-1…K-1 is for those who have nothing left at all or for amateurs or cheap street fighters.

K-1 is kickboxing for chrissake! What does he think of MMA? I wonder how long he'll last after making such retarded statements.

Oh yes, the most noble and sophisticated sport of bashing each other's face in with punches is sooo much above the brutal, caveman-like activity of bashing each other's face in with punches and kicks. Give me a break.

yes, getting his ass kicked by crocop will do a lot to diminish his perception of K-1 as a barbaric event. oh wait, i meant WON'T.

He'd probably turn around completely if Don King started to endorse Kickboxing.

The boxing organizations are just scared of kickboxing stealing their attention (rightfully IMO; as it's far more exciting to watch). In Finland, you can only be a kickboxer or a boxer, but not both at the same time, because the boxing promoters won't allow it...

I know! Then Crocop would totally sit him down and engage in a discussion on the artistic merits kickboxing!

K1 is MMA , they go to the ground. Just not as much. He is just pissed that alot of young fighters are choosing MMA over boxing.

These are childish statements, he doesn't like the competition, because the competition is truth!

The boxing commission in texas still oversees MMA matches, unfortunately. There needs to be new commissions formed. See if the corruption can be left only to boxing.
