    Yeah, the larger gloves and headgear lead to more brain injuries.

    Instead of getting rocked and knocked out, you're taking a bunch of smaller hits to the head over and over again. They've found that's more traumatizing in the long term.

    It was certainly a thing that happened.

    weirdly, boxing was a lot safer before people started saying stuff like "hey maybe this could be safer"

    Glove let you hit harder and more frequently without breaking your hand

    Fuck, I'd let Mike Tyson beat me up for three rounds for $250,000 in today's money.

    Ehhh, you have to at least make it to the end of the third round to win the money. I don't think it's worth the probable brain damage when I know I have no chance of getting that far into the fight.

    I was actually thinking they'd have to make the contestants wear headgear to protect from serious brain injury/death.

    I don't know if I can actually last 3 rounds without getting KO'd in any case, but $250k is a fair amount of money and I'd probably try.

    They stopped using headgear because the number of concussions went up.

    Huh, I didn't know that!

    It is very ironic that a lot of things people did to boxing to make it safer actually made it a lot more dangerous.

    Case in point: boxing gloves.

    It's also the cushioning of the blow which allows your brain for more chances to bounce in your skull and the fact that you don't break your hand on someone's face after ten punches,

    Watching Tyson fight was crazy. Just, ridiculous.

    Watching Mayweather fight is technically interesting at best. Horribly boring at worst.

    Tyson in his prime was a monster. Blocking a punch from him probably felt like he broke your arm.

    Yeah that's really the magic of Tyson is that blocking was basically not an option.

    There's been a few boxers who I think probably hit even harder than Mike Tyson. Names like Sonny Liston, Joe Frazier, George Foreman...

    This thread is making me wish they made a new Fight Night game

    I never played the last one but it had Joe Calzaghe in it, and he was the last boxer I gave a shit about

    Undefeated professionally, and every one of his fights he threw a million punches like he had infinite stamina turned on

    I wouldn't take any amount of money to fight Mike Tyson in his prime because he was a fucking maniac and he'd kill me. Lennox Lewis? Sure. Lennox Lewis would put me on my ass and that would be it. Tyson would leave me paralysed at best.

    Tyson ended most of his fights by doing that Predator thing where you rip out their entire spine and skull in one clean pull

    Oh yeah, Lennox Lewis any damn day

    It would be a loss without question but he would be a gracious sportsman throughout

    Mike Tyson would put you into a coma and then he'd really go to work

    I loved watching Tyson fight when I was a kid.

    You could see the fear in his opponent's eyes before the fight started. You knew it was over before it started.

    He'd go out there and waste no time measuring up his opponent, he'd just attack. His opponent might dodge a few but eventually that punch would land and wobble him, then you could see the switch turn on in Tyson like a shark in freshly chummed water, he knew he had his opponent and he was an unstoppable machine until they were dead.

    I still believe part of the reason Buster Douglas best him is because he was literally too dumb to be scared of him and it caught Tyson off guard.

    It sucks that we haven't had a fun heavyweight champ in a long time. The Klitschko's were more technical fighters and they made dominated the competition for ages

    if boxing gloves make the fight more dangerous, should they stop wearing them and go back to bare-knuckle boxing?

    also bring back handlebar moustaches

    bare-knuckle is cosmetically more brutal but safer for boxers in the long term, according to everything I've read on the subject

    the most likely outcome of me getting in a ring with mike tyson or any professional boxer is that I hear the bell and immediately flee the arena

    I'm not saying I wouldn't get in the ring with mike Tyson but it would take like mid six figures because I'd be fully expecting to come out of it paralyzed

    I would knock Mike Tyson out immediately with a single strike and then take a huge dump onto his face. I can essentially guarantee that.

    Then he will shake my hand when he gets out of the hospital.

    If I ever find myself in the ring with Mike Tyson, Mike Tyson really isn't my worst problem because I have clearly pissed of some Elder God and I am in the fucking Twilight Zone.

    Really doesn't matter what happens in that ring, is what I'm getting at, it's only getting worse from there.

    I think some people fail to realize that it is basicalky impossible to survive three rounds in the ring with Mike Tyson in his prime unless you are a very very good professional boxer.

    He would hit you once and that would basically be it

    I dunno, I bet Bas Rutten vs Mike Tyson in 1993 would have ended in some broken arms for Mike.

    Mike Tyson the coward would not even fight Cold Stone Steve Austin despite all his bluster and instead betrayed his friend HBK just so he could get on Cold Stone Steve Austin's good side.

    Based on my cursory interest in boxing since the early oughts, the heavyweight division has been full of slow, dull, technical fighters without any stamina ever since Lennox retired

    It was a real bummer and why I stopped caring about that entire weight class

    Anthony Joshua is currently 19-0, just beat Wladimir Klitschko this year, and the current IBF / WBA champion

    so far has won all of his fights by KO or TKO

    27 years old, 6 foot 6, 250 pounds, and honestly not a bad looking kid
