    Default Olympic Boxing = Total bullshit?

    I was watching some olympic boxing last night.

    There was this big ass eastern european guy fucking wailing on the body of this guy from the bahamas. Then the guy from the bahamas hits him with a little tap on the face, and he scores a point.


    ....


    Is it just me, or does that boxing seem like it is completely bullshit when compared to American boxing?



    Also, I lawled at the 106lb weight class. The only grown men who are supposed to be 106 lbs are horse jockeys.

    olympic boxing is just amateur boxing, it emphasizes on technique and approach rather than power and knockouts

    Eh, I do kickboxing, so I wouldn't say that I don't train. I can just appreciate a nice hard body shot.

    Not judging on power in boxing is like juding a grand slam competition on how nicely it looks when you hit the balls, rather than how far it goes.

    I guarantee I could land tons of pretty quick little jabs on your face, but real fighters know that does jack-shit so they go for body shots and hard crosses/hooks.

    How about justs Olympics= Total bullshit?

    Come on, theres people telling the crowds who to cheer for, you got a little girl who was to ugly to sing, a pissed off Swedish dude who thought he deserved the gold and got all pissy when they gave him a bronze. It's China at it's finest.

    Scoring has been shitty with boxing and judo this time around, judges simply arent counting some shots but adding shots that weren't there. The judo I've seen so far was total bs, there was a call of passivity during a bloody throw on the thrower... I won't even get into the lousy scoring during the gymnastics tonight.Oh well heres hoping the next matches are scored some what consistently
    I reply to a post it dies, I start a thread it dies... I am forum gimped I think....

    All fighting should be done till tap-out or unconsciousness. That way you'd need no juding.

    Matches could go on for over an hour. At the 1912 olympics there was an 11 hour wrestling match, to show the extreme side of that.

    why else would you watch boxing
    <@Teth> Fun is merely a lie propagated by the decadent capitalist west.

    Quite frankly I think if you seriously want to watch a load of fancy crap go and watch a martial arts movie or hell even watch anime, the real stuff isn't like that in any style.

    According to fanbois in order for there to be no problems with an MMORPG you have to imagine it isn't there, well, they say ignorance is bliss.

    Um...Dumbass much?

    Anime is probably the most realistic type of fighting you will find on T.V. The physics of anime are much more fluent with real life styles.

    Have you ever watched sailor moon or Dragon Ball Z? Watch these animes first and educate yourself before making such stupid statements. Samurai X would do well to educate you as well.
