    When does it stop being fun?

    This guy may not have the worst boxing record in the world but Ive just stumbled across it and its pretty poor.

    I mean, what is the point of continuing? When will he get the message that this is not his calling in life?

    I cant imaging he makes that much for any of these fights. Its probably at the stage that his wife doesn't even ask him how he did when he comes home

    He has obviously been dudded by the ref, 70 times, most of the losses have been on points. 20 losses in a row, 35 since his last win, I don't think it gets much lower than appearing in a fight at a Holiday Inn although he has appeared recently at the Reebok

    Well he's obviously earning a bit of money?

    Bangladesh cricket team also has a similar record but that didn't stop them from playing why should this bloke be any different.

    Because they have an excuse for their generally lower standard of competitiveness, whereas there's no significant reason why this guy should be so bad? (Unless he's boxing with no arms or legs or something)

    I'm sure that boxing is a bit like drinking games. Loosing only makes it more likely you'll lose again.
