The Contender

If you're too lazy to watch an entire boxing match, The Contender is the show for you, because they edit out all the clinches and just show the punching. If you're still too lazy, you can just go to Stop The Bleating, and read the recap.

Where do I go to stop watching boxing at all?

I have gone from an avid fan to a person who believes this "sport" should be banned. Too many downsides, with permanent injuries, corruption, and, Mike Tyson biting off an ear was the last straw for me.

There are better things to do with one's time than watch two neanderthals pound each other into submission and spray blood all over the place, then have to listen the winner's pearls of wisdom.

Sorry, Annie, count me out on this one.

I' not really the most avid boxing fan myself, but 20 yr old Oaktown native Andre Ward has brought some new blood (so to speak) to the sport. He's undefeated, usually fights as a middleweight taking on light heavyweights and kicked ass against 6'6' Russian World Champion in 2003. The anti-American fuckwits in Europe booed and booed but he still WON THE GOLD!!!

Mr. Romance is by far the funniest of all reality shows. Contender is good to watch too
