...can't wait to see your website, then.
I've never had any interest in having my own web site.
But in hope that you might not misunderstand what I'm saying.
I don't knock the physical fitness web sites out there for whatever the reasons some people have them whether it be for profit or just for fun, or whatever?
But boxing is my sport, and I've been very disappointed in the boxing scene for seemingly a long time now.
I'd like to see it come back as a sport, as it used to be. At one time it was the most popular sport and second to only baseball and had use to attract the most talented Amercian athletes.
I'd like to see it come back as a sport!
But I can't see that happening as long as it remains as it is now.
We got guys out there now that are calling themselves trainers for boxers that have never boxed, and also guys who had spent little time there as boxers, or that were unsuccessful in boxing out there trying to tell others how to be successful boxing and often for a fee of course that don't really know any thing.
And I've come now to just express my veiws now about it is all. (smiling)
As for training for boxers how I know how good the training is, is by what it produces?
So many of the preformances today produces little exciting action any more and few fans have interest it any more for reasons of it.
And as for the professional ranks it come to now be more just a show now that's all, and as for most fight fans today, the thrill is gone for reasons of so many mediocre performances.
But of course, there are some fans that just love boxing no matter if its mediocre.
In the other hand, for some if they were to get use to just watching just a bunch of mediore performances when you'd eventually dis come to see a half way decent fight you watch you might would think it was the greatest in history, you see.
As for the some so-called modern day training for boxers being perscribed for example, lifting weights is mostly only by trainers that have never boxed, and wanna be boxers, or guys that may had spent a little time there and weren't successful.
The so-called modern day training for boxers today, is not producing as well-conditioned athletes for example, as it had in what many consider to be Boxings Golden Era (1940s-1980s).
To the untrained eye things can look one way, but to the trained eye it looks another way. I hope you are understanding what I'm trying to say.
If a guys wanting to be a good or great fighter today, he needs to go learn how the greats like such stars as Joe Louis, Ezzard Charles, Jersey Joe Walcott, Rocky Marciano, Muhummed Ali, Joe Frazier, George Foreman, Larry Holmes, Billy Conn, Gus Lesnevich, Joey Maxin, Archie Moore, D-ick Tiger, Bob Foster, Sugar Ray Robinson, Tony Zale, Carmen Basilion Carlos Monzon, Marvin Hagler, Sugar Ray Leonard, Henry Armstrong, Wille Pep, Sandy Saddler, Roberto Duran, and Alexis Argello to mention just a few trained.
In fact, there's a book out today, only I don't remember the title of it, but its a book about how the great champions in boxing trained.
If I was a youngster today and was wanting to learn to box and to be a champion I would go learn how the greats trained and that's the way I would train.
If you want to emulate somebody, better to emulate some body who was great and successful.
As for the boxing scene today, other than Hopkins I only see one other outstanding figher out there and it Floyd Mayweather Jr.
Many consider Mayweather to be the best performer pound-per-pound of any boxer out there today.
However, Mayweather is another product of these modern-day watered-down boxing organizations and weight-classes, and cannot come close to challenging the grest Sugar Ray Robinson for the distinction of being the best fighter pound-per-pound in the history of the sport.
And as for the heavyweights today, that call themselves champions they are nothing more than just simply creations of shrewd promoters, formost of which is the shady manioulator Don King, wearing an assortment of belts that have been established more for the purpose of making money than developing talented fighters.
And as for training, I would encourage youngsters to not emulate those guys out there today, but to go learn about the greats of our sport and do the things they did and they'll be better fighters.
How I know how good the training is, is by what it produces?
