I'm not sure I know what you mean. They had more skill because of the amateur style (points system)? How is that ruining the pro game? Or am I just being thick?
Do you mean that they are ill prepared for the rough and tumble of the pro game? So are you saying the fighters in history were more prepared in amateur boxing or not?
yes most fighters are ill prepared because counterpunching is an art which is learnt from an early age.
the more amatuer fights you have the more you will box according to the scoring system, and then itll be harder to change that,khans like that
whereas FLOYD is skillfull, you could see it early in his career
personally i dont like watching modern boxing cause boxing is a lost art,mayeather is the only old school boxer left
Also - is the transition from amateur to pro more difficult in heavyweight and easier in the lighter weights?
umm yeh that was a mistake i meant because they idnt have the points scoring system

Ogogo won two rounds out of 3. Went to the judges lights and he got the majority verdict. It was pretty equal but it looked like ogogo had the upper hand in the first and majority of the 3rd in terms of points. The ukranian was throwing more punches but the didn't look to be landing them and scoring.

Anyone watching the boxing? I was watching the Ogogo V Khytrov fight at work without the sound on (no biased commentary to taint me) and it looked like the Ukrainian won it. Gave two standing 8 counts, he looked a lot stronger and less like he was struggling to land punches. I thought he'd won and Ogogo would be out.
