i dunno....is it?....
not saying its a bad thing...just quite an interesting niche style, that you don't get with other sports really...and i wondered if it all sprang up from mailer.
only asking cause i got all excited by the froch fight and flicked through the fight again..then reading the reviews of last nights matched i noticed a lot of this style....
'and was reduced to the pawing aimlessly in the direction of his elusive opponent, like a late night reveller in search of the bedroom light switch'
'Harrison has always boxed as if he is allowed only so many punchers per bout and does not want to use up his ration too early'
'Rogan staggered his man with another cowboy right and whaled into him as if he had refused to pay his cab fare'
i dunno....anyone who knows more about boxing know what im getting at?
certainly a style that mailer was king at, but did it start with him or has it just always been the way with boxing...the same way we have footballspeak....'stonewall penalty' etc etc...all those old faveourites.
