Education about what? It's just two guys beating the shit out of each other. What else do you need to know?

j/k

I don't know much about boxing, but I sure love watching a good fight from time to time.
When I'm aware of them, I don't miss an Arturo Gatti fight, the Montreal connection, I guess.

I love a good boxing match. Problem is, there hasn't been any really exciting fighters for a long while now. I dunno, I'm sure I'm dating the crap out of myself, but I miss watching Foreman fight. Win or lose, beat to a bloody pulp or not, that dude was always smiling at the end of a fight...and trying to sell you his grill.

It was fun to watch Tyson when he first started losing his mind. Now he's just a inconsequential thug, but it was fun watching him crash and burn...

I'd consider myself a fan, but I don't really follow it. I mean I watch it whenever I can on TV but I couldn't tell you names or anything like that. I like basically all kinds of fighting. My personal fav is watching street fights. None better IMO.

To me they're is no more greats. Ali, Foreman, Tyson. I mean someone you can't miss they're fight. I mean who knows I haven't watched in a damn long time. Is there anybody thats its one of those "can't miss fighters" these days. My friends tell me to watch De Lohoya (sp?) but I never bothered to yet. Besides as soon as they told me to watch his fights he got his ass handed to him in a fight from what i hear. Oh well.

I know a couple of boxing fans that are all about Boxing History. I'm just trying to catch up.

been trying to watch boxing movies, etc. to catch up. Most of them have no historical bearing though -- I'm looking forward to when Ring of Fire comes out. Might help me w/ my research.

And no, there are no more greats anymore. Well, unless you count Prince Naseem.

to me Ali was the greatest ever he had the talk and he backed it up. i mean the rumble in the jungle and the thrilla in manilla just might be the 2 greatest fights ever.

im a fan of Lennox Lewis hes makin a comeback and hes gonna whoop klitschko cuz i cant stand klitschko.

i also like antonio tarver and arturo gatti.
