Muhammad Ali once implored America's young to "get an education, become an electrician, a mechanic, a doctor, a lawyer - anything but a fighter."

Unfortunately, for boxing fans across the globe, many seem to have taken his advice.
 


For Saturday's world heavyweight double-header at New York's Madison Square Garden was no more than a depressing exhibition of how far the division has fallen.

John Ruiz, as grim a champion ever to pull on a pair of gloves, put Fres Oquendo and millions watching out of their misery when he stopped his fellow Puerto Rican after almost 11 rounds of wrestling to retain his WBA crown.

Grapple fans will have been impressed, but top draw boxing it wasn't.
