Are you stating that Tyson didn't bite chunks out of Evander Holyfields ear ? If you are then here is the very ear.
Tyson was an out and out thug.
First off Tyson was an orphan, a very large one, and was taken advantage of by his management.
He was an incredible boxer and anyone who actually has boxed or has been part of boxing knows this.
Second you gave Ali as an example as a guy with class? Are you referring him to calling fighters uncle tom's and being notorious for trash talk?
Boxing and mma suffer the fact they are entertainment. They are not always bracket sports where the best opponents face each other. This is where a
lot of the ceiling comes from in boxing and mma. They remain seedy because gambling is the most important aspect of the sport. And hype. It's been
that way for a long time.
People think technical boxers are boring, they want to see blood and knockouts. So someone like Andre Ward who is literally one of the best boxers in
history are very unpopular.
I do like Russian boxers but if I am looking at technique then it's guys like ward and Mayweather who are athletes who want to avoid brain damage for
a few years of glory.
Of coarse triple G and Canello are also two of the best and finally we get to see two top guys go at it, and they both like to throw.
Boxing has failed because of the shady aspect it has never let go which is prize fighting in general. Now like in mma nobody will take any risks
because they can destroy your career.
